Kingdom Living Training School


The mission of Common Ground is to call people of all ages to be formed into the image of Jesus so we can love our neighbors in Indianapolis and around the world. One way we live out our mission is through an intentional pilgrimage in the way of Jesus known as the Kingdom Living Training School. 

Training School will help you learn how to be a disciple of Jesus and make disciples - to grow in your love for God, neighbor and self (Matthew 22:37-39). Jesus invites us to be followers who walk in His way, bringing a witness of redemption and healing into a broken world.

We'll explore curriculum that includes: Jesus and the Gospel, Gospel and Personal Formation, Jesus and God's Mission, and Mission and Personal Calling. We'll sit around the table, take a walk with Jesus, and reshape the way we live and love others. This will happen through:

    • One-on-one discipleship
    • Evening intensives
    • Intentional area church connection
    • 6 months of class time coupled with group trips and experiences to bring us closer to God and to help us better understand our story and calling.


Training School will run from August 14, 2017 through March 19, 2018. In the summer, Training School meets on selected Monday nights and will travel to Toronto August 23-28. Classes begin September 5 and will meet on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings from 9 am until noon at Midtown (4550 N. Illinois Street, 46208). Additional trips include Tijuana, Toronto, Bentonville, and a couple of retreats

Students can expect roughly 10-15 hours per week of class time, studying and Training School related activities outside of class. It is also expected that students will participate in a house church.
