Take the DARE

D.A.R.E. is EHBC's discipleship process of getting the right people in the right places of service and ministry for the right reasons! We offer a series of 4 classes that will familiarize you with the overall purpose of our church (membership class), 4 habits every Christian should practice in order to grow spiritually, a spiritual gifts overview and what your gifts might be, and then which ministry in our church might be the best fit for how God has designed you to serve him at EHBC.

Discover God

In the Discover Class, you'll learn the foundations of the Christian faith, some basic information about Eastern Heights Baptist Church and our denomination, along with a little history of our church. Youll also discover why our church exists, how we go about doing ministry and how you can become a valuable part of that ministry. The Discover Class is the only class that is a requirement for membership in our church. Leadership positions require the other 3 classes to be completed.

Apply Habits

Everyone has habits! In the Apply Class, we'll explore some helpful habits for Bible study, prayer, connection with other Christians, and sharing your faith in Christ with others. You'll also find out how you can become involved in discipleship ministries at Eastern Heights, like our LIFT Groups (Sunday School, home Bible studies, etc.), and more. The Discover Class is a prerequisite for this class.

Recognize S.H.A.P.E

In the Recognize Class, you'll learn about your personal S.H.A.P.E. for ministry--the talents, gifts and abilities God gave you, and how you can use them in a practical way through church ministry. You'll also get an overview of the many ministry opportunities available at our church, and see ways you can "plug in" to make a difference. The Apply Class and a completed Spiritual Gifts Inventory are prerequisites for this class.

Explore Opportunites

At Eastern Heights Baptist Church, EVERY member is a minister. In the Explore Class, you'll find out the difference between having a job and having a ministry at Eastern Heights. Standards of excellence, ministry integrity, and ministry priority are discussed. Youll also learn how to begin a new ministry that God may be leading you to start. This class is the final step to serving in areas of leadership and ministry at Eastern Heights.
