Mature In Christ

Many centuries ago, the apostle Paul warned that the “last days” would be “terrible” (2 Tim 3.1-5). He goes on to describe a society that is completely broken on every level. Whether we are in the “last days” or not is not for us to say, but it is clear that the symptoms of that age are already characteristic of our own society. The good news is that the gospel is designed for terrible times, but it must be handled with skill. There is an urgent need to prepare believers to serve the cause of Christ in a way that unleashes the power of the gospel.

Teleios (TEL-ay-os) is Living Waters' answer to this challenge. Paul’s life and ministry were driven by his intense desire to “present everyone mature" (greek: teleios) in Christ (Col. 1.28), and that is our goal as well. Teleios is an intensive nine month, in-residence training program designed to cultivate in each student the character of Christ, so that the power of His life is released to live and work through them. The training consists of a mix of intensive Bible studies, ministry skills training, personal development, and service, all under the watchful care of seasoned mentors. The program is designed primarily for graduating high school seniors, but is open to older students as well. Lord willing the program begins August 5, 2019, and concludes May 23rd 2020. There is also an option to arrive at the start of our summer program June 5th. Students would serve as summer staff and then continue on into the Teleios program on August 5th. Teleios is an excellent way to prepare teens for a life of service for the Lord. If you have questions, please contact Paul Thompson at 608-634-4374 ext 35 or Email Paul.
