Winter Bible School

Our mission is to multiply disciples and churches!  We want to see our city and region changed by the gospel of Jesus in such a way that thousands are following Jesus and churches are planted.  Already, God has done more than we could have imagined, but we long for more.  And for disciples and churches to multiply, we need leaders!  That’s why we’re excited to share about Winter Bible School, coming in January 2018. Imagine 30+ leaders gathering in tailored tracks to discover how the gospel transforms areas of their lives and leadership.  Imagine a room full of leaders who celebrate what they have learned, challenge one another to put into action what they have learned, and take steps into leadership together.  Spanning 5 tracks of study, each with a strong emphasis on the Bible, Winter Bible School exists to identify, empower, and multiply future leaders, fathers, mothers, teachers, worship leaders, preachers, church planters, and pace-setting disciples of Jesus.

What Does it Cost?

  • $25 per student
  • PLUS $25 per child for childcare, max of $50 per family.

What Is the Commitment?  Students in the Winter Bible School commit to…

  • attend at least 7 of the 8 hours of workshop teaching.  The times are Thursday, January 18, 6-8pm; Friday, January 19, 6-8pm; Saturday, January 20, 9am-1pm.

  • engage in all workshop discussions. Winter Bible School is intentionally designed to be highly interactive and application-oriented, and we’ll need the students help to engage as we learn!

  • practice what you learn, whether that is in your City Group, a Serving Team, a different church, your family, or your work!

What Will I Learn? We are offering 5 tracks for leaders.  It takes at least 5 students to “form” a track.  The tracks offered are…

  1. Church Planting.  Whether you’ve dreamed of leading out in planting a church or being part of a future church core team or just want to learn more about the church-planting vision of Citylight Church, we’d love to have you be a part of this track.  Get ready for big vision mixed with nuts and bolts.  Led by Erick Whigham, co-lead Pastor for Citylight Council Bluffs, and Chris Hruska, co-lead Pastor for Citylight Omaha.
  2. Worship – including worship leading.  Worship is more than Sunday mornings, but not less.  This track will focus on how worship touches on all of life and how leading a church in worship affects your heart.  Designed for current and aspiring musicians, vocalists, and leaders for any ministry – not just the primary Worship Gathering on Sundays.  Led by Willy Roberts, Worship Pastor for Citylight Omaha.
  3. The Gospel and the Spirit.  We are a gospel-centered, Spirit-empowered church, and if you want to learn more about how the Holy Spirit works in our lives, this track is for you!  We will practically talk about day-to-day life with the Spirit and discovering and practicing our spiritual gifts.  Led by Doug Stevens, co-lead Pastor for Citylight Council Bluffs.
  4. Coupled Talk.  Marriage is real, and communication in marriage can either be refreshing or exhausting.  What does the Bible say about communicating with each other?  And how we can enjoy each other while honoring Jesus?  This course takes a practical approach to building your marriage.  Led by Dr. James Johnson, marriage counselor.
  5. How to Read the Bible. Whether you are a new Christian or have walked with Jesus for many years, God regularly speaks to us from His Bible.  It’s a miraculous, supernatural book, but so many times when we open it, it’s just confusing.  How do you read the Bible and come away with something new?  How can you connect with God as you read the Bible? That’s what this course is all about.  Led by Jonathan Randall, Citylight U Director for Citylight Omaha.

How Do I Apply? You can apply online below.  Once you fill out the short application, we will respond and give you further instructions for paying the school fee and help you get prepared for Winter Bible School!  The application deadline is Tuesday, January 16.
