Discipleship Communities & Discovery Bible Study | 4 minutes
Discipleship Communities (sometimes called Discipleship Groups or Dgroups) are small, intimate gatherings where disciples focus on helping each other to trust and follow Jesus as we grow to become more like Him. Dgroups seek to make disciples who make disciples.
They consist of:
3-5 people of the same gender
Transparent and honest relationships
How to Start
Starting a Discipleship Group is very straight-forward:
Gather a group of 3-5 people
Choose a Discovery Bible Study to complete together (Learn how at newdayresources.org/dbs-bookmarks)
Commit to a specific time frame for your group to meet (example: once a week for 9 weeks)
We highly recommend that you and your group start your first meeting by reading the Discipling Handbook together.
Why it Matters
Disciple-making takes place in multiple relational contexts, which all play an integral role in the growth of a disciple. As you mature in your faith, it is just as important for your to participate in a Discipleship Community as it is to gather with the whole church and spend alone time with God.
