One Year Discipleship Program.
The Founder of GFA World (Formerly: Gospel for Asia) and Metropolitan of Believers Eastern Church invites young Christians aged 18-27 to spend a year of monastic-inspired life marked by rhythms of prayer, sacrifice and service, within a community devoted to “Serving God & Humanity.”
A year in our Discipleship Program will teach you to live an ordered, Christ-centred life through spiritually formational practices giving you a firm foundation in your faith to live your life purposefully for the glory of God.
What will my year be like?
Tough and Transforming! Two words that describe what you can expect from this experience.
This is an opportunity to come away for a time and learn what it means to take up your cross daily and follow Jesus. A great saint once said that to follow Jesus means “to imitate the pattern of His life”.
You can expect your year to be tough, because dying to self and carrying crosses are always difficult. But you can also expect it to be life transforming as you learn to imitate the pattern of Jesus’ life, little by little, step by step, walking with others who have the same goal.
There's no going back after this radical transformation in your life through this intense year of discipleship.

The Discipleship Program has been one of the best things that could have happened in my life and our community during these past 17 years I have served at GFA. It keeps us young, with new and fresh ideas to spur conversation and cause us to be aware of our surroundings and God’s call on our lives, to be imitators of Him. Being able to go through the books with the students was a refresher for me as well and kept me focused on why I was here.

Isn’t it funny how life sometimes has a way of taking detours?
Everything is going along just as you want it and then, suddenly, you see a sign that says: “detour ahead”.
What now lies in front of you is not what you could have ever expected or planned for.

Let me introduce you to St. Patrick, a 5th century Christian missionary to Ireland.
You are most likely familiar with the holiday celebrated in honour of St. Patrick on March 17th.
But did you know, as a teenager he was kidnapped from his homeland of Britain and taken as a slave to Ireland?
