Are you a member of Parkwood?
  • Yes
Are you able to commit to this two year process (in one year segments)?
  • Yes
Regarding the time commitment, do you have any reservations or potential issues?
  • Yes
What are your reservations?

I want to be sure that the choir has someone to accompany rehearsals. I do know another person who could take this role on the weeks I am in class.
I have no reservations about my participating whatsoever and plan to be there faithfully. I just want to also support the music ministry that I love.

Are you currently serving in the church? If so, where?Youth, choir, band, gg host home, gg leader’s wife
Are you currently discipling someone? If so, who are you discipling and please tell us about the relationship.

I will list two. There are more, but saving space.
Jessica Pero and I have been meeting at least weekly for several years now. We study the Word together, study theological doctrine material, pray, and encourage one another in the Lord. I try to assist her in navigating a difficult life she has because of physical limitations as well as providing accountability for home stabilization.

Madison Moore and I have been leading a youth small group together for three years. We meet regularly to discuss the lessons. pray for our students. We also study the Word, and many times she will have questions about life that we take to the Word and apply. I am grateful that a young person has the wisdom to seek out an older woman for godly care. The advice and biblical counsel isn’t always followed, but I have seen a steady growth and maturity over time, and I praise the Lord for it!

Is someone currently discipling you? If so, who is discipling you and please tell us about the relationship.

I desire this in my life. I do have ladies who pour into me in gospel conversations regularly. They are ladies I work alongside or fall under them in the support of ministry. It is a blessing to me.
Debbie Lee, Celeste along, Angie O’Dell —to name a few. (Why am I crying as I put these names in this application?☺️)

Have you previously taken any training or equipping classes at Parkwood? (I.e. Bible Doctrine, discipleship, evangelism, 20 Basic Beliefs, GG leader training, etc.) If so, which ones?

I’ve taken all the parent equip classes, growth group leadership classes, and any other class I have been able to do.

Why do you want to be a part of Disciple Makers Intensive?

It is my heart’s desire to see active discipleship taking place in all ages of ladies and men in our church. I know that discipleship within a local body enables us to glorify, grow, and go—together. It promotes unity and clarity. It helps to prevent heresy and sinfulness. It provides accountability. I can’t say enough good things about it.
I want to be able to have a systematic way of doing discipleship because I am involved with many women of different ages. This will help me be efficient and effective.

Do you currently have 1-3 people that can commit to meeting with you twice a month (on average) for discipling over the course of the next year? If so, who are they?

I plan to continue to work with Jessica Pero. I am have not discussed the exact aspects with some other women, but definitely have a number of them in mind.
I’d like to continue with Madison Moore in this more structured way.
Reshawna Greene, Tamara Crown, Sarah Stockdale, Mary Anne Clark, Jennifer Wyatt—these are just a few. These are in my growth group.

Would your spouse or close friend recommend that you participate in the Intensive during your current season of life?
  • Yes
Choose one of the following doctrines and give us a brief definition and explanation of the subject: God, salvation, the Holy Spirit, or the Bible.

God is transcendent above all existence. He is like no other. He has no beginning or ending. He is perfect and holy in all His ways. His very attributes are what He possesses and also Who He is at all times and in all ways and at the same time existing in all capacities. Among His Divine attributes —God is… (but not limited to) Holy, faithful, omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent, immutable, infinite, just, transcendent, Triune…and so much more! He exists in three persons —God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit.
I have to stop here. It says to be brief. 😉
