Resurrection Academy of Discipleship

The Education opportunity formerly know as Confirmation or Affirmation of Baptism - is known @RLC as "The Resurrection Academy of Discipleship" or RAD.  It is part of a more comprehensive program of offering each person a continuing experience of deepening discipleship which starts in Sunday School, Kids Klub and youth groups and continues on into adulthood.

As young people grow - their faith and relationship with God and God's family also grows and matures. The questions that young people ask about their faith and how it relates to everyday life change and mature as well.

@Resurrection, it is our desire that the faith we share be something that is real, vital and relevant. We welcome the deep questions that people ask - probing how faith relates to the life that we live every day.

  Young men and women who are in 7th and 8th grades are invited to be a part of an intense two year program which investigates the Christian Faith in a deep and meaningful way. Hard questions are asked and everyday implications of Discipleship are wrestled with in a safe environment.

RAD Calendars will be available at the Resurrection Information Center in late July - and will also be made available at the Parent/Student Orientation Supper

on  September 20 @ 5:00pm. 

All students who wish to be a part of the program should be at this meeting with at least one parent.

RAD classes will be help once a month from 5pm to 7 pm. Dinner will be provided. 

We want young people to posses a strong faith - a faith that is able to withstand the pressures of this world to conform to rules and standards that lead people away from the abundant life that Jesus promises everyone who follows Him.

Powerful discipleship is not a program that the church runs, it is not a strategy or a ministry area. Discipleship is the DNA of our entire life together.

If you are looking for a place to exercise your faith and discover how faith in God and in Jesus and in a connection with a vital faith community can make THE difference in your life - you are invited to become a part of the RAD program at Resurrection.

Pastor Mike O'Berg has lead pastoral oversight of the RAD Program at RLC. You are encouraged to contact him at the church office (503.255.8772) or by e-mail at for more information on our RAD Program. 

There is a place for you here!
