Apprentice Life

finding life in the way of Jesus

"Follow Me"

If there was a person who was more awake to the ​goodness of life, more wise, more kind, more ​effective and more humble than anyone else who ​had ever lived, and he invited you to be his ​apprentice and learn everything he knows, wouldn't ​that be the greatest offer you could ever receive?


What is Apprentice Life?

Apprentice Life is a nine week experiential learning course that explores the teachings and work of Jesus of Nazareth.

Its purpose is to help you understand Jesus’ message and to learn what it looks like to trust him

as your Friend and Leader, day to day, and for a lifetime.
