The dictionary defines a waypoint as “a reference point in physical space used for purposes of navigation.” The
the equivalent of a waypoint in all but name has existed for as long as human beings have navigated. Waypoints
have traditionally been associated with distinctive features of the real world, such as rock formations, springs,
mountains, buildings, roadways, waterways, railways, and so on. With development of GPS (Global Positioning
Systems), waypoints have become common in everyday use. Waypoints located on the surface of the Earth are usually defined
in two dimensions (e.g., longitude and latitude); those used in the Earth's atmosphere or in outer space are defined in at least three
dimensions. They provide precise points for navigation—knowing where you are, where you’ve been and where you’re going.
At Cedar Hill, we are using the term to describe our primary workshops or seminars, the core courses that help us to navigate the
basics of the Christian life. Below is a brief summary of our four Waypoint Weekends/Workshops. They are sequential in nature, each one building upon the
previous one. They provide a path for growth as we navigate the journey of pursuing Jesus. Though certainly not exhaustive, they
are comprehensive, providing the foundation and framework for deeper exploration. They help us to
understand what it means to be a mature, equipped and reproducing follower of Jesus.
They are usually four hours in length (meal included) and offered as frequently as
needed, typically on a quarterly basis. If you haven’t started on the path, why not
navigate your way to the first Waypoint, StartingPointe, and begin the journey
with others at a similar stage of the journey!
C.L.A.S.S. 101: The first of our four Waypoints, StartingPointe is our introductory seminar as well as our entry point
for membership. It is foundational for the other waypoints and summarizes what Cedar Hill is all
about—our message, mission, vision, values, & philosophy of ministry. It is a great place to connect
with others who are at a similar stage of discovery.
