IDT 2017 at NXTwest

NXTwest is hosting IDT this summer.

This is the start of something great!

Are you ready to answer the call to be a disciple? It’s time to put your faith into action and join others who have the same desire! IDT (Intense Discipleship Training) is a six-week program designed to give you the opportunity to build real friendships, learn what it means to be a Christ follower, and put it all into practice in creative and life-changing ways!

IDT sessions (for every track) meet Wednesday nights from 4:00pm - 9:00pm (attending NXT Wednesday night service is part of the IDT commitment) along with one special Sunday evening service. Each session will include small group discussion, prayer, worship, and some of the best guest speakers from around the world! We also offer an awesome dinner ($2) between the sessions on Wednesday nights!



$130 Early registration (by May 7)

$155 Regular registration (after May 7)

Every IDT student follows a track of study. Each track encourages the learning of basic Christian truths while providing hands-on experiences to make those truths meaningful. Tracks meet during every IDT session, and every track has their own RD Week (Resident Discipleship Week).

Shine Track (John) | RD Week (July 5-8)

Experience Jesus through the eyes of the man who knew him best! John’s profound first-hand account of the life of Christ will bring you closer to the Truth and encourage you in your walk with God.


RD Week is packed with tons of fun opportunities to grow and put your faith to work! You’ll serve in the community, hang out at the beach, and take a trip to downtown Chicago for some deep-dish pizza! Additional info and a detailed RD Week schedule will be outlined in your IDT course materials.

During your RD Week, you’ll stay overnight at Calvary Church of Naperville from Wednesday night until Saturday morning. Please come to the Wednesday IDT session with your bags packed, and plan to attend ALL of the RD Week activities as coming-and-going is not permitted. RD Week is optional, but every year students say it’s the highlight of the IDT experience!
