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.

Do you struggle to find meaning in the mundane, ordinary parts of life?

We don’t think about worshipping God when sending emails, making our bed or brushing our teeth.
But what if each of these boring routine things mattered?
Whether we realize it or not each of us is shaped by the unnoticed habits of our daily lives.

Do you struggle to develop or maintain a consistent habit of prayer in your daily life?
As followers of Christ, prayer is foundational to our spiritual journey and yet it can be so easy to push it aside amid the distractions and busyness of the world around us. Maybe prayer seems too difficult, you just don’t know how and feel too inadequate to even begin.
What if you had the opportunity to be immersed in a community committed to prayer, to experience prayer not only as something you do but as a lifestyle?

When Coronavirus first began, for most of us it was just an unknown disease, in far off China. For me, it didn’t affect my day-to-day life, so I dismissed it, until suddenly, I could not ignore it anymore because it was right on my doorstep.
Almost overnight it seemed, Coronavirus spread around the world and fear seemed to take over society-our lives were now affected by an unknown, unseen virus, that, although invisible, had the power to throw everything into chaos. Now, we seek to carry on with our lives in the new normal that has emerged, that is, isolation and social distancing.
But can we, as a society, really exist on our own? How much will our day-to-day lives be affected by the absence of close relationships, human contact and even something as simple as a handshake?
