I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater
works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father John 14:12

Make me to know your ways, O LORD; teach me your paths. Lead me in your truth and
teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all the day long.
King David (Psalm 25:4-5)

Welcome & Vision

are thrilled about


all
that
God
has in store for you this
upcoming summer of 2015!
Summer offers a unique
time of growth, training,
exploration and preparation
for the future. Many students
seek real world handson experience by working
internships with businesses,
serving at summer camps,
going on mission trips, taking
extra classes, or simply
working a tough summer job.
Getting valuable experience
and training is incredibly
important and necessary
to building a satisfying,
successful and enduring
career in the future.
However, have you thought
about training for a satisfying,
successful and enduring life
in God? The Apostle Paul
told young Timothy to train
[himself] for godliness

We

for godliness is of value in


every way, holding promise
for the present life and also
for the life to come. Being
intentional in your younger
years about training for a life
of godliness and devotion to
Christ is one of the wisest
decisions youll ever make.
Spiritual training will have
an immeasurable eternal
impact not only you, but also
on your spouse, children,
family, friends, co-workers,
neighbors, and even strangers
youve yet to meet.
For the summer of 2015,
we want to invite you to
journey with us through
Beltways 14:12 School
of Discipleship as we
intentionally and passionately
pursue Gods heart! 14:12 is
a 10-week summer school of
discipleship embedded in the
context of our local church
designed to disciple and

14:12 School of Discipleship is an all-encompassing experience


that will leave you encouraged, challenged, and equipped for the
days ahead. I know of MANY programs that focus on education,
many that focus on experience, and others that aim to aid the
church. But I have known few that bring all these elements
together allowing the student to grow in knowledge, personal
depth and discipleship, while done in the context of living life in
the church body. Truly 14:12 is a total discipleship experience that
is done through relationship in the church without sacricing a
commitment to excellence in studies.

equip 18-25 year olds to live


out passion for Jesus and his
purposes in the earth.
The past couple of years
we have seen students come
into new realities of freedom,
devotion, and purpose in
their lives as they invested
their summer to pursue
Jesus through worship,
prayer, Biblical instruction,
practical
application
of kingdom values and
disciplines, and training in
character to name a few. We
believe God has great things
in store for your life this
summer! So we invite you
to consider joining us this

summer of 2015 in a pursuit


after the person of Jesus
Christ!

As followers of Jesus, our greatest joy is Jesus. He allows us the


privilege to join Him in what He is doing in the world. Beltways
14:12 school is a unique opportunity to be equipped to do just
this. Ive been pleased to be a part of this school the past two
years, and Ive witnessed God doing a powerful work in the hearts
and lives of young men and women - most often things quite
unexpected and very wonderful. The time spent in this school
is intense training for godliness which has value for both the
present life and the life to come. I cant think of many more
protable ways to spend a summer!

COMMUNITY
STANDARDS

John 14:12

The 14:12 Life

EMPLOYMENT

The Scriptures give us freedom/grace in many of these areas. However,


in order to maintain a unified, rich environment and atmosphere that will
provide the best opportunity for us to experience the fullness of what
God has for us personally and corporately during 14:12, we feel it is
important and wise that we set a community focus and standard in the
following areas:

Dating We ask that students not begin new dating relationships during 14:12

Media Abstain from media that dishonors God or distracts you from receiving
all that God has for you in this season

Alcohol/Tobacco Abstain from partaking through the duration of 14:12

If you are looking to fall in love with Jesus, the word of God, and
want to learn how to give it away to the world around you then
this is the school for you. This is not a school full of uff but an
8 week intensive designed to prepare and release young people to
walk in greater levels of freedom, authority and the power of the
Holy Spirit. I am excited about 2015 and watching God set young
people on re!

demands of 14:12, it is best for students
to commit to doing 14:12 out of humble
desire to seek God, grow as disciples
of Jesus, and make disciples of Jesus,
not because of any glamorous trip
destination. Each trip has limited spaces
so we will do our best to place each
student on the trip of their preference.
When beliefs become actions, lives are changed. The students in
the school submitted themselves to becoming doers of the Word.
It was costly and sacricial giving. I watched as willing students
became disciplined, diligent servants hungering and thirsting
to receive godly instruction that equip them to be used as living
vessels to reach the broken-hearted, hurting and unsaved lives
with the love of Christ. The school fostered a genuine community
among the students as they experienced spiritual growth. I was
encouraged, challenged and blessed by the devotion and courage
of the students.

From my experience teaching at 14:12, these guys and gals are


hungry for the Lord - hungry for His presence, hungry for His
Word, hungry for the power of the Holy Spirit to work and move
within our community and beyond. This is the place to signicantly
grow in a short time, to be radically changed. These students are
future pastors, missionaries, and ministry leaders who embody a
passion for the Kingdom of God!
