Disciple-making is not a program; it's a lifestyle.
Making disciples who make disciples is the nucleus of First Blanchard. Jesus said, "Follow me and I will make you fishers of men" (Matthew 4:19). Clearly, this was no invitation to participate in a discipleship program but a call to a lifestyle of disciple-making. At First Blanchard, we practice this lifestyle in small Discipleship Groups (Dlife-Groups).
Discipleship Groups (Dlife-Groups) are small groups of three to five people who meet weekly for intentional discipleship. These groups can meet anytime and anywhere. Some meet at the church, while others meet in homes, coffee shops, restaurants, businesses, schools, and parks. Most of our groups are gender specific and multigenerational. We encourage participation from our students all the way through senior adults.
In a Dlife-Group, there is a high level of accountability related to daily Bible reading and applying the Bible to our personal lives. The Bible is our only textbook, we do ministry together outside the walls of the church, and we strive to multiply out new groups every year. By connecting in a Dlife-Group, you will not only build intimate relationships with others, but you will grow in your relationship with God. You will also learn how to be a personal disciple-maker for the rest of your life
The 3-Fold Purpose of a D-Group is...
to grow in spiritual maturity,
to serve in missional ministry, and
to reproduce disciple-makers.
D-Life Online or a D-Life Journal are excellent disciple-making tools that provide our Dlife Groups with a simple and biblical process for disciple-making. All of our groups use these tools for their Weekly Study Guides. We also provide annual D-Life training for all of our group leaders.
