A disciple is an apprentice of Jesus who is training to live in the kingdom of God and is inviting and teaching others to do the same. Currently, here at Haven, we have a very intentional pathway of becoming more like Jesus.


Discipling people to transform and live into the Kingdom of God

Every Sunday morning from 10:10 - 11:00 am the family of Haven Church gathers in a classroom setting to expand our ability to transform into the disciples that God wants us to be. All of our Sunday Morning Classes (or SMC's) are targeted to increase our understanding of at least one part of the Plan.


KEVIN PLATTE Director of Discipleship

As the Director of Discipleship at Haven Church, I am part of the Discipleship Team that is tasked with creating and managing environments where God's transformation of His people can take place - where the Holy Spirit can inform and inspire His people towards full engagement with His kingdom. Simply put we try and help disciples become more Christian and ask them to engage as a Christian where God has planted them.  I would love to hear what Discipleship means to you, so shoot me an email here so that we can find a time to get together soon.


If you are new to Haven or looking for a more intentional, and accountable path to the fully human, fully alive life that God intends for you, Haven Church offers the Faithwalking spiritual formation process.


Faithwalking is a process where people are increasingly following the way of Jesus, experiencing ongoing transformation, and developing effective practices for missional living: serving the poor, the marginalized, and those in need; working for the common good; and restoring individuals, social systems, communities, and nations to God’s intended design.


Faithwalking begins with the Core Four Courses designed to walk you through a personal transformation journey that includes practices in spiritual formation, inner healing, emotional maturity, and missional living. If you would like to learn more about Faithwalking please contact Kevin Platte or visit the Faithwalking website here.
