Project 12 is a ten-month discipleship training program. P12′s desire is to help you clarify your gifts and calling in Christ. The program includes in-depth biblical studies, prayer, meditation, lectio divina, inner city work with homeless families and children, concert outreaches, and a two week mission trip. Project 12 takes place in the context of a full-time intentional community, Jesus People USA, and is an offshoot of JPUSA.
Jesus’ words, “as you have done it unto the least of these you have done it to me,” asks us to go beyond both absolute and abstract solutions into a head involved, heart opened, hands on, way of life.
Classes we have offered include New Testament Survey, Old Testament Survey, Community and Growth, 21st Century Worldview (Uncommon Sense), Personal Growth, Communicating Creatively, Romans, God, Sex and Dating, The Bible and Current Events, and many others.
In addition to Project 12′s own teaching staff, we may include visiting speakers from North Park University / Seminary and elsewhere. We use various documentaries and films to help open communication and interaction on topics as varied as Iraq, homosexuality, poverty, corporations and more. What does God have to say about these things, and what would he have us say? What can we speak into culture while admitting we are often struggling to understand and act properly ourselves, and that at present we “see in part” (1 Cor 13)?
