Why Radiant Intensive?

Radiant Intensive is a unique and innovative program designed to disciple and equip young adults at Radiant Church in Kansas City. Through prayer, discipleship, teaching and hands on ministry, you will grow in passion for Jesus, develop greater depth in your relationship with Christ and be a part of a like-hearted community serving to build a thriving local church while having the ability to pursue your education and career. We are radically committed to making disciples and developing leaders. We believe that it is crucial that students are a part of a like-hearted community, pursuing Jesus, and being equipped and empowered as a leader to impact this generation during these years. 


You have a God-given desire to be wholehearted and to live for something bigger than yourself. You are most alive when you give all to Jesus and follow him with everything. That is what Radiant Intensive is about; a year given to seeking Jesus and spend yourself on advancing His kingdom.

Radiant Intensive was created to allow you to have a major role in the launch of Radiant Church, to be a part of a fervent community of faith-filled believers, pursue the dreams of God over your life, grow in your personal calling and giftings, be personally discipled by the Radiant Church team, and partner in prayer for a move of God in our day. 

Next year could be one of the most important years of your life. Not just based on where you go or what you do, but based on who you will become. At Radiant Intensive, we are looking for young men and women who want to grow in passion for Jesus and advance His kingdom in this generation. We want to invite you to come and be on the front lines of what God is doing at Radiant Church.

Go deeper in your walk with Jesus. Find community. Pray hard. Advance the kingdom. Join us!

What you will do...

Prayer Meetings

We believe that prayer is not only the primary means of advancing God’s Kingdom on the earth, but it also serves as the greatest discipleship mechanism there is. Our goal is to change the earth through our prayers as well as change our own hearts in love for God and His word. Each student will participate in prayer meetings throughout the week. Our prayer meeting format combines prayer and worship.

Leadership Development Classes

We want to always be learning and growing. Leaders are readers. We will study the scriptures, theology, practical ministry, and leadership while reading books that will call you higher and deeper in your devotion to Jesus.

Discipleship Groups

Honest and vulnerable relationships centered around wholehearted devotion to Jesus is crucial to our longevity in following hard after God. You will be in a group with a staff leader and other fellow students to share your heart, encourage, and challenge each other on a weekly basis. These groups are created for the purpose of accountability, discipleship, and friendship.

Reaching the City

We are in this city to reach this city. Each week we will take an afternoon to be intentional to evangelize, serve, prayer walk, and engage in city events to spread the Gospel as well as spread the word about Radiant Church.   

personal Development Plan

Crucial to discipleship is finding your purpose and setting practical steps to walk it out. You will be challenged to aggressively steward your gifts, calling and talents through individual equipping and empowering. Each semester you will establish a development plan and accountability for your personalized projects. You’ll have time each week to study/research, experience, and receiving coaching.


We desire to see youth and young adult ministries across the country reframed to be built on passion for Jesus. You will be a signficant part of leading a generation to live in desperate pursuit of God through conferences, tours and missions.


We believe that God created us to live in relationship with others and only then can we live the full life that He intends for us. We are exited for you to be involved in a Radiant Church small group and/or leading student small groups.
