The Academy is a discipleship tool for everyone.

We desire to train and equip the saints to do the work of the ministry (Ephesians 4:12-16). The Academy is set up so that every person who is called by God can take their next step (as a Partner, Deacon, or Elder) and be trained. We pray you are flourishing in faith and serving. This is a place for you to do just that!

Instead of calling each unit a ‘class’, we will call it a ‘module’. Unlike a lecture, Modules emphasize holistic learning with multiple elements. Each module will bring together exercises that engage your head (intellect), your heart (affections), and your hands (practice), giving you training that is optimized for the best learning environment

The Academy was birthed out of a desire to raise up deacons at Greenbriar. Deacons fill a Biblical role in life of the Church by meeting specific needs throughout the local church, building unity and helping in the disciple-making process!

Do you have the spiritual gifts of mercy and helps? Do you have a desire to see the local church flourishing in her mission to care for Believers and make disciples of Jesus throughout our city? You may be called to become a deacon (1 Timothy 3:8-13)! If so, The Academy is your first step in the process to becoming a deacon at Greenbriar Church.


Who can be part of The Academy?

The Academy is for anyone who is ready to grow in their faith and be trained to serve! This is a discipleship tool designed to train and equip followers of Jesus to do the work of ministry in our local church and throughout our city. We do have special pricing for our Partners, but you don’t have to be a Partner to participate in a Module. If you are not a Partner, we hope you will join the next Partnership Experience!

Can I register for more than one Module at a time?

Yes! You can register for any of the available Modules.

How much does The Academy cost?

Partners can register at $29 for each Module. Non-Partners can register at $49 for each Module.

Are there discounted rates for The Academy?

We want everyone to have the opportunity to be trained and equipped to do the work of ministry! We will work with you to provide an option that is affordable for you. When you register, be sure to fill out the scholarship request portion.

How long is each Module?

Each Module will last 6 weeks.

How do I know what books or resources I need to purchase for the Module?

We will provide the resources and materials you need on the first session of each Module.

Who will be teaching the Modules?

Each Module will be taught by one of our five Elders.
