The dGroup is a step on the Discipleship Pathway because it flows out of the rGroup. rGroups, which form out of the Worship Gathering, are the “fishing ponds” for dGroups. As people form friendships and bonds in rGroups, handfuls of them will decide to take the next step and begin a discipleship journey together in a dGroup. To join an rGroup visit www.sdrock.com/rgroups.
Because accountability works well in a smaller setting, the ideal size of a dGroup is 3 to 5. For example the leader and 2 to 4 other people. We recommend that you do not have more than 5, and believe that a one-on-one relationship is not an ideal dGroup.
Ideally, you should meet once a week for about an hour to an hour and a half. You can meet more frequently, but it is important that you meet at least once a week. This schedule shouldn’t prohibit those you are discipling from calling youthroughout the week or coming by for counsel when needed. It is important to remember that discipleship is about the relationship between you and your group members, not about checking a requirement box. Disciplemaking is a way of life, not a program.
