Grow with Porterbrook Learning

Ever desired to attend seminary but couldn't find the time or money? Do you learn better through conversation more than the classroom? Porterbrook Learning may be right for you. Originally developed in the U.K. by Steve Timmis and Tim Chester, Porterbrook (PB) has now trained thousands of believers around the world in missional theology. God has used PB to train folks in our church for almost ten years. We can't recommend it highly enough! 

Porterbrook Learning takes place over two years, although you can commit to one year (and technically even one term) at a time. Learning takes place through outside reading and exercises and then, as participants come together to discuss the material, in a weekly cohort. Each term, which is composed of four units, lasts nine weeks. You can learn more about it here. Karis Church, as a part of Acts 29, also is eligible for a terrific discount. There will be one women's and one men's cohort held each week. The details are below. Email us for more information or contact the appropriate group leader. An example schedule, which corresponds with this fall, is below. Also, hear what Pastor Matt Chandler has to say about Porterbrook.

Driscoll Nightline Debate Now Online

Karis is proud to be a part of the Acts 29 Network and to be supported monthly financially by Mars Hill Church.  The church's pastor is Mark Driscoll.  This week, Mark was on ABC's Nightline, debating the existence of Satan.  He did a fabulous job.  The video is found here.  The website is a bit messed up.  Some persistence is required.  Sometimes the video just randomly starts over and you have to replay it.  But the debate is well-worth watching.  Great job, brother!
