NOTE: Iron-Sharpening Group (ISG) is part of the training.
Iron-Sharpening Group (ISG), is an intimate community within the bigger group intended to provide students an avenue for accountability, continuing discipleship, and time to encourage one another. It also provides a forum for discussing personal issues, interacting in an informal situation with faculty who is leading the group, and developing closer relationships with fellow students. As part of the personal development aspect of the curriculum, these groups form an integral part of the growth and training of FCL students.
