A D-Group (a discipleship group of 3 to 5) is essential for maturing in one’s faith. The 12 Apostles lived in a discipleship group, constantly being challenged, encouraged, and confronted by Jesus. Unfortunately, our schedules don’t lend themselves to full-time discipleship development. The weekly meeting is a necessity. It is a training ground for growth, accountability, confession of sin, prayer, and bible study, to name a few. As important as the weekly meeting is, much of a person’s spiritual development happens outside of the weekly meeting. Before a person cares about how much you know, they want to know how much you care. While care can be expressed in many forms, connectivity is at the top of the list. Here are 5 ways to stay connected with your D-Group:
- Group Text
- Social media
- One-on-one Meetings
- REACT. Do something.
- RESPOND. Leave a comment on this post.
- REPOST. Repost this link on Twitter, Facebook or your blog.
