How Is The Keystone Discipleship Training Unique?

The Keystone Project emerged on the mission! Therefore our work takes us outside of the institutional church and is not dependent on any program or structure for its success.  Our discipleship training is not concerned with how we meet; it is concerned with how we live!  While the training does not deny the importance of church gatherings, it intentionally focuses on the development of a Great Commission lifestyle through the cultivation of loving relationships, the skillful use of spiritual gifts, and the daily application of God's Word through Spirit-led obedience.

Read About Our Doctrine

“We had a rough time in my region with the killings of our brethren in the villages. In one state alone we were left with 11,000 refugees with little or no help so I was very involved in trying to raise help… But it has been well and the lessons learned at Keystone have continued to be invaluable. I successfully went to the fourth generation with the first group… Two of them have gone through their fourth generation and we are starting our first redemptive community.”
