Discipleship

Discipleship is about intentionally meeting with others to help them love and follow Jesus more deeply (1 Cor. 11:1). Our goal is that every member of our church is living this out in a discipleship group of 2-3 people.

D-GROUPS

A discipleship group (or “D-group”) consists of 2-3 people who meet regularly to 1) READ THE WORD together, 2) APPLY THE WORD by teaching each other, confessing and repenting from sin, and encouraging each other to love and follow Jesus, and 3) PRAY THE WORD, worshiping God by praying his word back to him and singing his praises. Read, apply, pray. You can always do more than this, but shouldn't be doing less; these practices are foundational to our growth in Christ (Matt. 4:4, Col. 3:16, Jas. 5:16, Heb. 3:13).

GETTING STARTED

You can start by looking around in your Community Groupministry team, or others at church, and asking God to lead you to someone to form a D-group with. You don't need a curriculum to make disciples, but sometimes it helps to have a guide, so when starting a new discipleship relationship we recommend beginning with our Created for a Purpose material (download), which is an 8-week guide that is centered on God's word and covers some core aspects of our identity and purpose. For reference, there are also some sermons that go along with this material (listen).
