I’ve always wanted to learn how to read the Bible, but it never made sense to me. I was thrilled when a disciple-making friend said that two of my friends also wanted to learn about God. This friend promised that I would be able to learn what God wanted to say to me in the Bible.
I thought of several other friends who I would love to join our new group. While we only had a few people who were interested, our small group of ladies was excited to meet. Two people in our group had rejected Christianity in the past but wanted to take another look at the God of the Bible. We all had questions about God that we wanted answered.
It was surprising when my friend said that he would teach us each to lead the group and that he thought it would be better if my group of ladies met without him. He helped us get started, first by doing a very helpful introduction to the Bible, and after leading the next couple of meetings with us, we realized that we could do this ourselves.
Our small group has enjoyed meeting together and we are learning a lot about God. I came to realize that this friend planned to start more Discovery Bible Study (DBS) groups than he would have time to lead and that we might be able to help others read the Bible in a small group setting, now that we have learned how to do this.
Empowering Leaders in Discovery Bible Study
The goal of Discovery Bible Study is never to lead one study for an extended period of time. Instead, the heartbeat of Disciple Making Movements (DMM) always looks for ways to coach new leaders who lead and train others to lead. This is the replication process that allows movements to spark and new churches to grow.
