Explore is a three year Evangelical catechetical discipleship program for youth created by Dr. Andrew Evans (Youth Leadership Director) from Summit Pacific College. It consists of six phases: 1) God’s Grand Biblical Narrative, 2) The Lord’s Prayer, 3) The Creeds I, 4) The Creeds II, 5) The Decalogue, and 6) The Sacraments. Each phase is 4 weeks long. Because each phase builds off of the previous phase, students cannot join the program midstream. They must begin at phase one.
