What to expect

Since discipleship is more than a curriculum, a day at Ascend is highly intentional, highly relational, and highly interactive. Who better to share what to expect than some of our recent alumni?

This program has helped mold me more into the person God has called me to be. I also gained lifelong friendships with other godly women that I will always cherish.
Tykeyah Henderson
Ascend challenged me in ways that were both difficult and rewarding. They allowed me to become the person I am today. The commitment to studying the Word, the physical tasks that we persevered through, and the community I found at the end of my time were undeniably life changing. The friendships developed over that time are still some of my deepest friendships and ones I will cherish always. I’m thankful for how the Lord worked in my life during that time, and how the things I learned there will be part of me forever.
Marissa Terracciano
My experience in the discipleship program at Lincroft Bible Church was very challenging and transforming! I look back on this experience and thank God for using it to mold and shape me into the woman He has called me to be.
Gianine Gunther
Ascend challenged me physically, mentally and spiritually. My leaders got to know me well because I let them know me. That's how they knew how to challenge me in the best way possible. I was glad to have been able to share this challenge with the other girls who I can now call my close sisters, even if we are apart.
Rachel Angotti
Ascend was easily one of the two best weeks of my life and one experience that I wish I could relive over and over again! I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to be discipled for an entire two weeks with other ladies my age and to grow in the knowledge of Christ.
