Fellowship's Adult Education and Equipping Ministry
NewU is life changing adult classes to help us to: KNOW - GROW - SHOW - GO
At NewU, we offer training and equipping experiences for adults so that at whatever level they come into Fellowship* (New Believer, Maturing, Leader, etc.) New U can help them to discern and grow towards their calling and ministry. We can help you answer the question “Where does God want you to be in 5 years?” We can help you get there! We designed NewU to help you realize and be a part of our four foundation pillars Know. Grow. Show. Go.
NewU is a self-sustaining ministry offering a wide variety of Classes, Seminars, and other Experiences for adults. Most classes are 4-6 weeks. Many classes are offered on Monday Evenings. Most classes charge a small registration fee (usually around $15). This fee pays for the NewU ministry in it’s entirety. Tuition Assistance is available – just ask!
NewU classes are open to all people 18 years and up, and we welcome people from the community.
NewU strives for Excellence! Our class handouts are first rate, our instructors are well trained and experienced.
