Since the early days of Christ Community, we’ve been intentional about preparing Christians for all life. Decades ago, a catalytic learning experience was developed to enable participants to intellectually and practically engage ideas and habits that have shaped our church. We call this transformative experience Razor’s Edge.

Razor’s Edge prepares participants to follow Jesus everywhere. And we mean everywhere—not just in our church, but in the home, at work, and in our community. As Christ-followers, we’re all called to be people of influence wherever we go.

Razor’s Edge consists of 11 weeknight gatherings, beginning the first week of September. But we’d encourage you to think of Razor’s as more than 11 sessions. More accurately, it’s a 70-day journey designed to shape the rest of your life.

what is Razor’s Edge? 

Razor’s Edge is the place where men and women at Christ Community are “sharpened” (Proverbs 27:17) and refined as apprentices of Jesus so that they are razor-sharp, prepared to follow Christ with integral hearts and skillful hands (Psalm 78:70-72).

Who is it for?

Razor’s Edge is a space for anyone at Christ Community who desires to grow in their ability to follow Jesus wherever they are. Razor’s Edge also serves as the basic prerequisite for anyone wishing to serve in a place of leadership at Christ Community.

Participants also commit to engaging a workbook with daily assignments like Scripture memory, prayer, and journaling. Participants are encouraged to bring a Bible and a way to take notes each session, as well as any books or articles that are being discussed during that session.
