Classes

Our hope through Next Steps Academy (NSA) is to create learning environments that help you develop in your connection with God, growth in maturity and service to God and others. The courses offered are divided into areas of “Connect, Grow and Serve” and every stage consists a wide range of topics that will help promote and encourage spiritual growth throughout every step of your faith journey. It covers key areas in biblical knowledge, in Christian living, leadership development and in various areas of ministry.

Importance of Studying the Word

Psalm 1:2-3, “But whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither— whatever they do prospers.”

It is through the diligent study of God’s Word that helps to send our roots deep into the soil where streams of water are found. Each of us need to be eager to deepen our understanding of the Bible to mature and produce abundant fruits as a disciple of Christ.
