DFL is The River’s adult discipleship program to equip Christians with the tools and wisdom to experience the fullest life in Christ! From this class you will be motivated to make these primary components part of your daily walk with God. Different from Bible study, DFL is formatted to teach and train you in different aspects of your faith life, with a focus on the techniques and practices written in the Word to be tacked onto your spiritual tool belt!

Discipleship for Life is held in Room 115 during our 9AM Sunday service when class is in session, and it’s free to join! Stay tuned for info on the next DFL class!


Have you ever wrestled with how to respond to a boss or leader when you disagree? Do you ever wonder why you should listen to them in the first place?

In small group format, John Bevere emphasizes the protective boundaries God provides through authority figures. Many are deceived into believing our true destinies can be found away from divine leadership by distorting our ability to recognize God’s inherent authority and His delegated authority.

By teaching us how to properly relate to leadership, John shows why living under authority provides a place where there is provision, protection, and hope for the future.

Join us in our upcoming DFL class for some enlightening, encouraging truths to set your trust in the authority of the Lord, including His choices in human roles of power and leadership. Book and workbook are $12. Class runs from February 18 – March 24 on Sundays at 9AM in Room 115. Sign up today!
