ABOUT THE NAME
When Jesus’s Apostle Paul writes, by way of Pastor Titus, to the older women of the church in Crete, he encourages them to “teach what is good.” The Greek word for that is kalodidaskalos, which comes from the word kalos, which has a striking array of meanings, including: beautiful, good, of good quality, fertile, rich, honorable, distinguished, possessing moral excellence, worthy, upright, and more. Keeping this text in mind, the foundational conviction of this track is that Jesus wants women in His church to not only be fully captivated by the goodness (kalos!) of Biblical teaching on who God is, what the gospel is, what a woman is, and what it looks like for a woman to live a holy and gospel-centered life, but also teach and model the glory of these good things (kalos!) to others.
HOW THE TRACK WORKS
The track is led in concert by one of our pastors and one of our Kalos Team members.
The track meets monthly on Sunday nights from September - June with overnights taking place in November and May.
Each night time is spent in prayer, in gospel conversation, in the Word, and in engaging a specific theological or practical topic. Readings for each month include select texts of Scripture and some short readings from an array of authors.
