WHY DO WE HAVE DISCIPLESHIP GROUPS AT CP?
This is what Jesus told His disciples before He ascended to heaven; He didn’t seem to have a Plan B!
“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the
Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” MATTHEW 28:18-20
We value discipleship because this is what Jesus did (and I don’t think he offered a Plan B). During His ministry on earth, Jesus invested deeply in a few men – loving, teaching, and equipping them. We desire to follow His example.
WHAT DO WE CALL OUR DISCIPLESHIP GROUPS?
We call them Journey Groups because we are on a journey together to become more like our Savior and Lord.
WHAT DOES DISCIPLESHIP LOOK LIKE FOR MEN & WOMEN AT College Park?
Life-on-Life Missional Discipleship (LOLMD) at CP happens in small groups of men and women who commit to meet together for one year at a time. Each group has a leader who has a heart to develop a safe community where members can be known, loved, and care for one another. This community helps one another know God through His Word, grow in Christ-likeness, and become equipped to invest in others.
HOW DO I KNOW IF A DISCIPLESHIP GROUP OR A BIBLE STUDY IS RIGHT FOR ME IN THIS SEASON?
For our discipleship groups:
- Long-term (1 year at a time)
- Time commitment: prepare for lesson, come to weekly meeting, spend time with leader outside of
meeting, attend a workshop
- Focused on daily walk with God, applying the Word, sharing hearts and lives, becoming equipped
to invest in others
- Deep relationships with a few; confidentiality; mutual accountability
- While the Journey curriculum provides structure, the group time is very relational and interactive.
The majority of the group is spent going over the lesson, sharing personal application, and prayer.
- Group members may be at a similar in stage of life or be of various ages.
