The Discipleship component of the 4CMI program is a 2-year continuous experience, though it is broken up into six terms with different course codes and distinct syllabi that contain unique assignments. Therefore, it is important to enroll in the correct course code and to carefully review the corresponding course syllabus and complete the assignments listed there.
