Adoption 101 is a class to help understand the biblical principles of adoption, practical ways to care for the orphan, and ways to get started with the adoption/foster care process if God is calling you to adopt or foster. You will hear from individuals who have been through or are going through the process, and will have the opportunity for Q&A with those individuals at the end.
We hope that this class will equip you to have a basic understanding of adoption, as well as care for the families within their communities well.

Covenant Partnership at The Paradox is a commitment to the mission of God through the local church and participation in gospel friendships. The two week partnership class is first step towards becoming a covenant partner at The Paradox.
"God’s plan for his church is that we would belong to a local covenant community of faith. This is for our own protection and maturation, and for the good of others.” – Matt Chandler
Read this article by Matt Chandler on the importance of church membership.
As God’s covenant people we are unified under this vision that God has for us. And then, together, we covenant to love and serve and disciple each other to that end. Partnership is less a membership at a club, but more a loving commitment to one another. Even through the messiness of our sin, differences, and selfishness, we help each other navigate the mess of our hearts as Jesus does his gracious work in and through us.
- The two-week class is the beginning of the Partnership Process. An interview with a church leader and then elder confirmation follow the class.
- If you have any questions please email Daniel Reynolds (email@example.com).
Marriage Class (Spring 2018)
February 18th - February 25th, 2018
Your marriage isn't primarily about you're happiness or fulfillment. It's about your holiness and about seeing, understanding, and displaying the beauty of the gospel and the glory of God.
This class is for anyone that is married, will be getting married soon, or desires to be married one day. Single, engaged, or married, you are invited to this class.
Our hope for this class is to equip couples to have healthy marriages that live as a family of disciples on mission seen specifically in four prayers:
- Deepen your grasp of the gospel as you see your need for continual renewal throughout your marriage.
- Develop an understanding that the most difficult parts of marriage (communication, finances, intimacy, and mission) are, at the root, heart-level issues.
- Be challenged in practical ways that help you grow together as a couple, loving and serving each other sacrificially and unconditionally.
- Be equipped to glorify God as fully as possible through your marriage.
Topics will include:
- Covenantal Love
- Communication Intimacy
Teachers : Pastor Brent Mowery, and one of our partners and biblical counselors, Jalea Seals
Childcare and will not be provided
Class will be held at The Paradox Church offices: 910 Collier St. Fort Worth, TX 76102,
This class is open to anyone.
This class is required for all those who desire premarital counseling through The Paradox. The class is one part of the premarital counseling process at The Paradox. If you are planning on getting married in Spring or Fall of 2018, please attend this class.
March 9th - March 18th, 2018
The vision and plan of God is that “the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord” (Hab. 2:14). So we are committed to raising up men and women to be missionaries internationally that the glory of God would be known to unreached people groups.
We do this by sending and supporting missionaries short and long term, reaching out to people from the nations that have come to Fort Worth, partnering with works internationally to help them reach people around them with the gospel, and going to Brazil each Spring Break.
The past two years we have sent groups of men and women to Brazil to work with an organization we partner with, Restore Brazil. Through Restore Brazil we have been introduced to a particular church in a town about three hours north of Rio de Janeiro called Macae. In 2016 we began our partnership with Community Baptist Church of Macaé and have seen great fruit from that relationship.
We partner with an existing organization (Restore Brazil) through a local church (Community Baptist) to see the gospel have a long, lasting presence in the communities of Brazil. We do this by working in the favelas (slums) doing after school clubs for elementary aged children, having worship gatherings in public places with an emphasis on bringing others in, and beach evangelism.
If you are interested in this trip go ahead and sign up! We will contact you shortly after you register and get you more information on this trip. If you have questions, please email Jake Ledet (firstname.lastname@example.org) and he will be happy to answer any questions you have.
