DISCIPLESHIP BANDS

Want to go deeper? Consider forming a Discipleship Band, a group of 3-5 who focus on accountability & prayer.

What is a Discipleship Band?

www.discipleshipbands.com

Rooted in the early Methodist revival, Discipleship Bands are a historic, transformative, yet simple way to grow as followers of Christ through intentional, in-depth connection with a few other Christians. It works like this:

  • 3-5 believers (of the same gender) choose to form a band. Discipleship Bands are meant for committed, growing Christians who are ready to interact in a mature and trusting way. It’s important that everyone involved is there with a desire to engage this process. You can choose your own group, or we can help you connect with others who are looking for a group.
  • Pick a regular time (preferably once a week) to connect via phone / video call (or in-person when the restrictions are lifted)
  • Take 45 minutes to an hour to connect with the same easy format each week (no prep required): 5 voluntary questions (not everyone has to answer every question every week) designed to help you reflect on how God is working in your life and where you need His healing and forgiveness, as well as a time to pray for one another with what is happening in your week.
