Elements of CRAVE Student Discipleship Ministries
A CRAVE Discipleship Training Weekend is designed to give students hands on training to learn to study scripture on their own, take their studies to a deeper level, write their own personal statement of faith, and even begin the discipleship process with others. There is a total of 10 hours of training needed for this, as it includes teaching as well as hands on projects to help the students put into practice what they are learning.
This training can happen in 2 different formats:
-Friday Night and Saturday
-All day Saturday
Information about how to book this Discipleship Training Weekend is below.
After a student has been through the CRAVE Discipleship Training Weekend, they have the option to continue on in their training. CRAVE Next Level is similar to taking an online course. Students interested will use the training they received to do a series of in-depth Bible Study projects.
Projects will be geared to each student, done at their own pace, and once completed they will be submitted for critiques and continued teaching to further develop the students training and skills. Students will also seek to find both a “Paul” and a “Timothy” in their life, for the purpose of building and developing different discipleship relationships.
Information about how to enroll in CRAVE Next Level is shared during the Discipleship Training Weekend events.

Costs that are counted as a travel expense are: all transportation costs, housing costs, and any food/drink purchased during the weekend that is not provided by the group.
