Dr. Jeff Schwarzentraub with his wife Kimberly, sensing the Lord was calling him to plant a church in Denver, left the Midwest in 2010 and quickly formed a small core group committed to reaching the greater Denver area with the good news of Jesus Christ. The first service was held on November 7, 2010 at Cherry Creek High School. In 2013, through an incredible work of the Lord, BRAVE was able to purchase the building where the Englewood Campus currently resides. In April of 2016, the Broomfield Campus was launched as part of a larger vision to plant multiple campuses throughout the front range. Today, nearly 2000 worshippers call BRAVE their home and together they strive to glorify God by making BRAVE disciples.
MAKING AND MULTIPLYING DISCIPLES
The path of authentic discipleship is a lifetime transformational journey of following Jesus Christ. We define a disciple in light of Matt 16:24-26 as one who has denied the flesh, died to self and is now glorifying God by following after him.
When we become intentional about reading God’s word and putting into practicing his teaching we can’t help but become “mature in Christ” (Colossians 1:28), growing deeper in our relationship with God and our relationships with others. Our primary means to develop our gifts, and to minister to one another is through BRAVE Groups. Everyone who calls BRAVE their church home is strongly encouraged to take part in a BRAVE Group where build authentic community through life-on-life discipleship. BRAVE Groups is not just for adults as it takes place within our Student and Children’s Ministries as well.
