Discipleship Groups are small groups (10-15 people) that meet regularly, in people’s homes and at the church, for fellowship, Bible study and prayer.
DNA groups are smaller groups of 2-4 people of the same gender meeting weekly for prayer, Bible study, encouragement, and accountability.
These groups are comprised of a more mature follower of Christ with a less mature one. They meet weekly and focus on their specific questions and needs and help show them the way and encourage them in their faith.
Discipleship groups are the hub of relationship, care, growth, and outreach at our church. The degree to which our discipleship groups flourish is the degree to which our church will flourish.
Relationship is intentionally at the top because, in our mind and experience, it all starts there. Without strong relationships, care, growth, and outreach will not happen to the degree they could or should. Care and growth are intentionally on the sides supporting the wheel structure. By God’s grace, we must care for and grow the disciples the Lord brings us. Outreach is intentionally on the bottom because it is the outflow of three above. If we are building strong, loving relationships, and our people are growing in their faith and being well cared for, outreach will happen and it will be effective.
