ARISE is a discipleship training program and it’s our mission to empower people to understand, experience, and share the gospel in whatever life-path they pursue or setting they find themselves in.
We exist to make disciple-making disciples.

Experience the story. Make disciples.

August 22 – November 18


Explore what it means to be a disciple of Christ through over 220 hours of in-class learning. Build a solid foundation for ministry through classes on theodicy, doctrines, worldviews, and more.


Grow in community as you learn with classmates and instructors what it means to follow Jesus. Enjoy the Christ-centered friendships that develop when we connect through God’s Word.


Develop practical ministry skills as you spend 120 hours serving in the community. Rub shoulders with real people who have real stories. Experience the joy of sharing with them the ultimate story.

“I didn’t think things were ever going to get better. So it would be easier to end things now.”

At ARISE I met a God, all over again, who loves me so much that He came and gave His life for mine. I met a God, all over again, who cares about my wellbeing, emotions, struggles, and my yearnings. I met my God, all over again. ARISE has empowered me to focus on Jesus, and on His other-centred nature, more and more. And in so doing, I hope to live for others just like He did.

ARISE taught me that there’s nothing you can do to earn God’s favor, because you already have it. It showed me that purpose in life comes when you spend time in the Word and share your faith in Jesus and His love for humanity.

Growing up, I had several conflicting impressions of God, and none were exactly attractive. My experience at ARISE helped me to see God as my Father and Friend, and that there is nothing too good to be true about Him. Everyone needs to know of God’s overwhelming desire for relationship with us, and ARISE equipped me with the tools to share the incredible God I now know with others.
