COVID UPDATE: The Young Adult Ministry (ages 18-24) has transitioned our group gatherings to weekly video calls. We meet in gender-specific groups, called DNA's, on Wednesday evenings (meeting times vary to accommodate the group members' schedules) where we spend time praying for one another, checking in on each other, and going through some content together. For more information or to get connected to a DNA group, please contact Taylor Murray.
Our desire is to see college students and young adults at Doxa discipled for the everyday stuff of life. Young adults (ages 18-24) have unique opportunities for both their own discipleship and for mission.
Each Wednesday night, we offer a time of community, study of scripture, and prayer. We do this in DNA groups which are similar to what people think of when they say "small group" or "community group", but the emphasis is responding to the scriptures we are studying, rather than just learning more information. Our DNA groups are gender specific; men meeting with men, and women meeting with women - focusing on three key components of discipleship:
Discovering the truths of the Gospel in Scripture.
Nurturing these truths into our hearts, leading to repentance and faith in the Gospel.
Acting in faith to obey what Jesus calls us to do and share with others what he is doing in our lives.
With over 40 missional communities currently meeting around the Puget Sound, we also connect young adults to MCs, either based on their region or missional affinity (homeless care, adoption services, student ministry, athletic ministry, etc).
We believe the family of Doxa functions best when different generations are connected in common spaces, and not "cast out on their own island". Young adults at Doxa are invited into the same rhythms as other members, along with monthly events that help connect them relationally to other young adults.
