The curriculum we teach is 15 years in the making. Our team of disciple-makers are people who have walked through pain, seen God do miraculous things, and aren’t afraid to ask the hard questions.
Everything we teach at Narrow Gate is Biblically based and focuses on knowing more about God and how you relate to Him. Our focus is on helping you discover the answers to two essential questions: “Who am I?” and “Why am I here?”
Do you thrive in hands-on environments? Our discipleship curriculum is not limited to just Bible studies. Our Artisan Educational Training plays a vital role in teaching our students who God is and what gifts and abilities He has given them.
Our goal is for you to walk away from every lesson with a clearer understanding of God and your identity in Him.

We will also discover that not only do science and logic point to an intelligent designer outside of time and space, but also that this God is alive and active in creation today.
