Discipleship Program

The Salvos Discipleship Program is designed to refine you like silver and purify you like gold to be a worker for the kingdom of God

What is the Salvos Discipleship Program?

It is a discipleship program that will see you be immersed wholeheartedly in the Word of God, be guided by the Holy Spirit and live as sold-out disciples of Jesus Christ.

It is a one-year residential program where you live and learn at our Berkeley Vale campus. The main focus is to help you discover who you are in Christ, start you on a journey to become more like Christ and to provide you with a solid foundation to be able to go and achieve new and greater things for Christ. 

The Salvos Discipleship Program is also offered as a non-residential program.

Program Structure
