D-Groups (Disciple-making groups) are closed groups of 4-6 men or women (gender specific) that meet 60 to 90 minutes on a weekly basis over the course of 12 to 18 months. Each week these groups strategically focus on five areas that guide the group’s time together: Studying the Word, Hiding God’s Word, High-level Accountability, Praying Together, and Keeping an External Focus (SHAPE). These groups are organic in nature with the goal of intentional multiplication as disciples make more disciples.
