D-Groups

Grow as a disciple and grow into a disciple-maker

What is a d-group?



A D-Group (discipleship group) consists of three to five men or women, gender-specific, 
who are committed to growing together spiritually for a period of 12–18 months for accelerated spiritual transformation.
At the end of the year, we hope to see each member start their own D-Group and replicate the group experience by inviting others to take the same discipleship journey with them.

Groups choose when and where to meet each week, and they'll spend time in prayer, in God's Word, and encouraging and challenging each other in their pursuit of Christ! D-Groups can begin anytime during the year, we just ask that you let us know by registering your group below!

Looking for a Group?

A D-Group is a gender-specific, closed group of 3-5 believers who meet together weekly for the purpose of accelerated spiritual transformation. D-groups form through pre-existing, meaningful relationships with other believers in environments like Community Groups.

If you want to join a D-Group, talk with your Community Group leader about when the next D-Group starts. If you already have 2-4 friends who want to start a D-Group, fill out this form, and we can help you launch and lead a new D-Group. Our staff will provide helpful resources that will remove the intimidation of leading.

What is a D-Group?

A D-Group (discipleship group) consists of three to five men or women, gender-specific, who are committed to growing together spiritually for a period of one year.
At the end of the year, we hope to see each member start their own D-Group and replicate the group experience by inviting others to take the same discipleship journey with them.

Two of the biggest barriers to growth in the church are a lack of Biblical engagement and a lack of authentic accountability. Without these two things, most of us will eventually stall in our spiritual growth. The greatest benefit of a D-Group is that they help get people into the Word and keep them in the Word until the Word gets into them.

D-Groups are NOT a group Bible study, but provide an opportunity for group members to share their personal takeaways from the previous week's passages.

Reading Plans

Groups are free to choose any Bible reading plan that their group agrees upon, but we provide two options: a New Testament Reading Plan and the F260 Reading Plan. The F260 plan utilizes the Old and New Testaments.

Both reading plans promote reading the Bible with the life-transforming purpose of understanding and responding to God's Word. This is best accomplished by using a D-Group Journal to record your responses to each day's passage.

Both reading plans also include memory verses for the year. These verses are "fighter verses"
