Thank you for considering taking a step of faith!
We have a passion for helping people find and follow Jesus Seven days a week. For so many people, though, finding Jesus is not the hard part. It’s the consistently following part that can get challenging. Growing in faith as a Christian does not happen without a plan. No Christian stumbles into a growing faith in Jesus. Rather, it takes an intentional process and time to grow, step by step, into the person God created you to be.
“Grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”
2 Peter 3:18
Our intentional plan to help you grow in faith is called Seven Steps. It will help you gain the knowledge and tools necessary to ignite your growth and to be ready for whatever God has for you in the future. The steps are truthful, helpful, enjoyable, and practical in your daily life and they will help increase your spiritual growth exponentially!
Our team is here to serve. Please don’t hesitate to ask if we can help you in any way.
– Dr. Jeremy McGarity, Lead Pastor

Developing the Gifts God Gave You
From the day you were born, God has shaped you for a place in His kingdom. You have a unique heart, aptitude, passion, experience, and set of gifts that equips you to impact the world for His glory. You will learn and understand what those gifts and abilities are, and how you can use them in your life, the Church, and beyond.
Reaching Out to Your Oikos
You will gain an understanding of the New Testament Oikos (pronounced oy koss) concept and how your God-given mission flows out of your everyday life.
Remember, it is not about changing the world, but instead it’s about changing your world. Our Church is built on this biblical concept.
This course is a total of four classes, one class a week for four weeks.
Evolving Your Faith
“Then Jesus came to them and said, ‘All authority in Heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of ALL nations,
baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and of the Holy Spirit.’”
Discipleship is structured into three 11 week sections. In this course you will learn about the Word of God at deeper and deeper levels. In these classes, you will learn to grow deeper as a follower of Jesus Christ, and you will learn the commitments and receive the tools necessary to become all God is calling you to be.
Developing the Leader in You
Leaders are not born; they are developed. This is a comprehensive class on the subject of leadership. You will learn how to lead yourself and your family, and you will learn how to be a leader at work. (Whether or not you’re the boss.) You will learn the seven characteristics of effective leaders and the principles, responsibilities, and steps of faith involved in servant leadership.
Growing God’s Kingdom
Jesus Said, “Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you DO them.”
In this final step of the Seven Steps plan you will learn the principles and practices of starting a ministry, a church, a satellite campus of Skyline, an event, or even a business. You will learn from people who have successfully launched all of these things, and more. The principles for launching any successful endeavor are found in the pages of Scripture and in the wisdom of those who have gone before you.
A healthy church is a reproducing church. With this class, and the six before it, you will be fully equipped to do your part in growing God’s kingdom.
