Become a Centurion!
The Centurions Program prepares you to navigate today’s culture with a Christian perspective. Join an ongoing and growing network of Christ-followers to develop your inner faith in a way that results in outward action. Gain confidence, understanding and knowledge as you apply biblical truth to every aspect of your life.
