Presence Discipleship Year
Applications are now open to begin Discipleship Year (DY) beginning in September 2021 to 1st June 2022.
Are you willing to invest a year or more to let God shape you and be a part of what God is doing here in Presence in Cork? Presence Discipleship Year (DY) is now a one and a two year intensive discipleship experience, DY1 and DY2.
We have a huge heart to raise up a new generation of disciples, leaders and revivalists, to partner with God and invest in people taking steps towards their God given potential. Our mission is to raise up followers of Jesus and equip them in understanding their identity, their kingdom authority, and their calling and gifting.
We are currently looking for people who want to spend a season with us as we train, equip and invest in you. We are currently looking for people with a heart to grow and serve in any area, including worship leaders, musicians, those good with sound and visual equipment, children’s ministry, pastoral or administrative, evangelism, church planting, or any other area you feel gifted in.
The cost is €400.
Over the year you will read 5 books covering a range of topics from identity in God’s eyes, to understanding the kingdom and discipleship, as well as practical ministry such as praying for the sick, feeding the hungry, grow in hearing God’s voice for yourself and for others, casting out demons and spiritual warfare, sharing God’s love powerfully and exploring your unique calling in the kingdom and the church within the context of the great commission.
Please don’t the finances stop you. Let us know if this is a genuine obstacle for you. This can be paid in monthly instalments too.
It is typically a 12 hour weekly commitment, so you can continue with other university and college studies or your work and family responsibilities. It’s important that you still have time for friends, family and yourself, and can still have a life outside of DY.
A typical week looks like:
Tuesday evening for class and training. (3 hours)
One weeknight life group of your choice. (3 hours)
Outreach and servant evangelism. (1 hour)
Serving at our Sunday gathering. (3 hours)
Personal Reading and study (1 hour)
There will also be monthly one to one mentoring sessions with one of our leaders, as well as other aspects of the life of Presence that happen over the year.
If this is something that interests you, we want to hear from you. For more information
Email us at Hello@iPresence.org and we can answer your questions and send an application pack.
We can arrange a video call or coffee and hear what is on your heart, answer your questions and tell you more of what’s involved. You will also hear from current and former students what it’s like. The kingdom invites ordinary people like you and us to advance it. This city, this Island and this world, needs people to grow and mature and step into their potential. God’s only plan to change and influence the world is entrusted to His people and His Spirit. That’s why we have such a huge heart to disciple people who can walk in the truth of the bible and the power of the spirit. Be open to God. Pray and be brave and step towards your destiny.
