BTSQ – Five Key Areas of Spiritual Growth

BTSQ – “Beyond The Status Quo”

At Expedition Church, we focus on five key areas of spiritual growth.  The five areas are easily remembered by the acronym  D.R.E.A.M.

The D.R.E.A.M. acronym was inspired by Ephesians 3:20-21 which says, “Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine [or dream], according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.”

As people grow in each of these areas, their ATTITUDES should be more and more Christ-like and their ACTIONS should make a greater Kingdom impact in the world.


Five Key Areas of Spiritual Growth

Devotional – personal time with God

Relational – time being sharpened by others and time sharpening others

Educational  – intellectual growth and ministry skills development

Aspirational – greater understanding of what God desires for us

Missional – active involvement in God’s Kingdom work
