“They preached the good news in that city and won a large number of disciples. Then they returned… strengthening the disciples and encouraging them to remain true to the faith.”
- Acts 14:21-22
FULLTIME PROGRAM FOCUS:
We use the uniquely powerful and communicative medium of music to encourage the church, challenge Christians to loving action in response to Christ’s call to “make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19), and share the hope of Christ with those who don’t know Him.
FULLTIME PROGRAM VISION:
CTI’s fulltime program is a community in which passionate and authentic disciples of Christ grow each other in His image, mature in Christian leadership and character, are equipped for ministry and evangelism, and are released into the world.
Believers that they come in contact with are blessed and encouraged through music and stories of God’s work in the lives of the team members, and are challenged to live out His purpose for His church: to “make disciples of all nations.” Those they meet who do not know Christ are exposed to Him through compassionate and relevant encounter.
By the end of the fulltime season, these team members are trained and motivated to lead others in discipleship, equip them for ministry and evangelism, and grow them in Christian leadership and character. Graduates of the fulltime program who demonstrate an appropriate readiness in such leadership are given the immediate opportunity to live it out in practical reality as a member of CTI’s summer servant-leadership team.
Ideally, each young person will leave the fulltime program with an expanded worldview, and will continue to have a leadership impact in their church and community – equipping others and embracing ministry and discipleship as a lifestyle.
