Spiritual Formation

At The Exchange Church we believe that working out one's salvation in fear and trembling is a crucial part of following Jesus (Philippians 2.12). This page is designed to give some simple ways to practice spiritual growth as a Christian.

Prayer

Prayer is rooted in conversation with God. It involves talking and listening. The Exchange Church offers regular prayer gatherings as well as an Intercessory Prayer Ministry.

If you would like this team to pray for you please email us at prayers@theexchangedfw.com.

Confession

Confessing sins to one another is practice that has been all but lost in most Protestant churches (James 5.16). And yet it is a crucial aspect of our Spiritual lives. The Exchange Church is working on ways to guide meaningful confession between men and women who follow Jesus.

If you are interested in this please email our Lead Pastor at jacob@theexchangedfw.com.

Learning

A disciple is a learner. He/she needs to be reminded of things as well as be introduced to new perspectives on things.

One way to do this is by listening to sermons. You may do so from our Podcast or Sermon Archives.

Reading is also a good practice. Certianly reading the Bible itself is the most fruitful activity for Christian learning.

  • Pastor Jacob likes to use this app to guide his yearly Bible reading. It offers a variety of options for reading through the Bible in one year, gives you reminders, and tracks your progress.

There are also many other recommendations that our leaders can give you.

Fasting

Fasting is another practice not regularly a part of many contemporary Christian lives. But it has proven to be a fruitful experience for Christians in all generations. 

For information about fasting and other spiritual disciplines we recommend the book Celebration of Discipline by Richard Foster or The Spirit of the Disciplines by Dallas Willard.
