What is the Discipleship Program?

Are you ready to experience God’s love and discover His plan for your life? Do you want to finally overcome negative habits, learn how to recognize His voice and develop the dreams in your heart? If so, TBI’s Discipleship Program is for you.

The Discipleship Program is a four-month course offered each Fall Semester, which prepares young adults ages 17 – 25 for dynamic Christian living. Through the Foundations-For-Life curriculum, written exclusively for TBI by the Burchfields, students will receive answers to life’s toughest questions and learn how make good choices based on God’s Word.

TBI Students will enjoy morning classes, afternoon projects, media and music ministry, Audience-Of-One (Fine Arts department), sports, and life-changing moments at Prayer Culture. During many weekends, students will host retreats where hundreds of guests attend and nationally respected guest speakers minister.

Believers World Outreach Church in Katy, Texas will become a significant part of their TBI experience as they join our loving church family every Sunday morning. Students live in dormitories on the Country Camp property, which is the 1,088 acre ministry headquarters of many of the Burchfield’s outreaches. Many of the Discipleship Program graduates are invited to return for specific training through The Leadership School.
