About Us

Our Purpose: To be a church that strives to be multicultural, multigenerational & to be a source of healing & reconciliation that meets the needs of others, where they are, with the glory of God & His message.

Our Mission: To pursue & portray in every moment & in every opportunity to genuinely love God with all our heart, our mind, our words & our actions & to love others as we want to be loved ourselves.
 
Our Vision: To be a church that is what God meant the Church to be when He created & commissioned it.

Our Motto: Because of Christ & through Christ; love is our ultimate pursuit.
Why the Name Cohort?

Cohort can be defined as a group of people banded together for a common cause. This captures our hope as a youth group.
Our Plan of Action

Our plan of action (POA) consists of three parts:
 
1. “I Do/We Do/ You Do” process of application: At DCC we strive for the “I do/We do/You do” process of learning & application. First, I must communicate an model biblical truth (I Do). Then we need to look for opportunities to apply what we have learned corporately (We Do). “We do,” refers to the individual ministering & working within the church, helping his brothers & sisters along their journeys & reinforcing their own faith. Lastly, the group of believers must strive wherever God may lead them to serve as Christ’s ambassadors & as a model for other believers to follow (You do).
 
2. Quality over quantity: At DCC will strive to “protect the calendar”. We want & mean to be intentional, deliberate & genuine in our interactions. We cannot do this if we are always busy. We choose & hope to provide quality or quantity.
 
3. Learn-act-experience, not learn-experience-act: The biblical process is not learn-experience-act; it is learn-act-experience. God’s blesses as we step out in obedience not before. He provides what we need in this situation or that situation when we choose to be obedient. We will never “feel” fully prepared for all that God has called us too. However, we are not supposed to do anything in our strength; we go in God’s strength & with the Holy Spirit as our Teacher & Comforter. For example, you may say, “I want to become bolder in my faith. When God makes me bolder I will share my faith.” That’s not how it works biblically, you want to be bold; then step out in faith & God will be there with you through the process (learn-act-experience, not learn-experience-act).

FAQ
 
How do I know my child/student is in a safe/nurturing environment?
 
All our volunteers have had recent federal background checks & we have a tracking system in place to ensure that your child (nursery-3rd grade) is only picked up by their parent or other authorized individual.
 
Are you on social media?
 
Yes, we are! Instagram: cohortdccyouth – Facebook: Cohort at DCC Snapchat: cdccyouth
 
What curriculum do you use for Sunday School?
 
All students (3rd grade – 12th grade) use the Gospel Project Curriculum. This curriculum is gospel-centered & gospel-focused. It encourages your student to live missionally & intentionally while teaching 99 essential truths from the Bible. By using this curriculum your student goes through the whole Bible every 3 years, from Genesis to Revelation. In addition, the curriculum teaches your student how to know what they believe & how to defend what they believe.
 
What makes Cohort different from other local youth groups/student ministries?
 
I will not attempt to “one-up” or degrade other youth groups/student ministries. Cohort is not in competition with other Bible-believing, Bible-preaching youth groups; we are on the “same team”. There are several good youth groups in the local area. Instead, I will tell you who we want to be & what our focus is on as a church body. We want to experience real-faith, not fake or forced faith. We understand that we are imperfect & that we will make mistakes; we want to cultivate an environment/culture that is transparent, honest, welcoming & safe. We want to be challenged to grow spiritually, to love God with all our heart, mind, soul & strength & to love others as Christ loves us. We will look to serve each other & the local community in intentional, deliberate & genuine ways. We will pursue these things, learn, grow & trust God with the results.
