At COYFC, we believe that God desires for all believers to grow in their understanding of and ability to serve others.  Leaders exist to not "do all of the ministry" while others champion them - but exist to champion and equip others to do the ministry (Ephesians 4:11ff).  COYFC provides ministry training to all staff and volunteers across all ministries and roles, in an effort to increase the quality of ministry as we grow and learn together.


The Spiritual War: Jesus' Battle Plan Against Satan - 5 week class | REGISTER HERE

At COYFC, we are trying to raise up lifelong followers of Jesus who lead. Satan is determined to stop that goal (Matthew 13). All Christians need to know their enemy so they can move toward victory. We often think people are our enemies. This is not the case. Our fight is against spiritual strongholds (2 Corinthians 10:3-6). We need learn how to fight spiritual battles in a spiritual way to be effective Christian leaders. We will cover: who Satan is, what he does, how we can withstand his attacks and fight against him. 

Time: 6:30-8:30 p.m. 

Dates: February 20, February 27, March 6, March 13, March 20, 2019. Test will be on March 27, 2019
