the mission

“The 72” is a non-geographically based expanding network of disciples aiming to multiply and support disciple-making efforts wherever possible.

the vision

In Luke 10 we read about a group – the 72. We don’t know their names or their stories, but they were clearly part of the ever-expanding group of followers of Jesus Christ. We are all part of the 72.

Wednesdays at 7:30pm (MT)

Gatherings will begin with teaching/testimonies, and then will split off into small groups.

ONLINE GATHERINGS

This is not just another place to take in more information – these short-term online gatherings are designed to help you hear God and do what He is saying (Matt 7:24-27). Sessions will include biblical teaching, real testimonies and space to process with others how God is wanting to break more deeply into your life.

IMMERSION
EXPERIENCES

CLBI has a campus in Camrose Alberta which is the heart of this discipling movement. Here people can come for one semester or up to two years. In the future, we hope to have various immersion experiences in different locations in the US and Canada. These experiences may be for a weekend or for a couple of weeks.

LAUNCHING OF MISSIONAL
COMMUNITIES

As disciples are ready to embrace the mission God has for them we want them to invite others to join them. This may be on a college campus,  in a new business, local church, church plant, or a cross-cultural missionary setting – all of these are part of this discipling movement.

GATHERING #8

May 20, 2020

(John 1:14) Learning what it means to have Jesus move into your house, your neighbourhood, and your town. As Jesus draws us to his father, we begin to see that the story doesn’t revolve around us, but rather Jesus himself.

Jane chats about how God has been weaving prayer throughout her life, her friendships, and her community.
