Covenant Discipleship Groups
Covenant Discipleship groups make disciples who make disciples through mutual accountability and support for discipleship. They are small groups of 5-7 people who agree to meet one hour a week. The agenda for the weekly meeting is a covenant the group writes shaped by the General Rule of Discipleship:
To witness to Jesus Christ in the world and to follow his teachings through acts of compassion, justice, worship, and devotion under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
In the workshop you will learn the basics of Covenant Discipleship, group dynamics, the content and purpose of the group covenant and covenant writing, and how to introduce covenant discipleship to your congregation.
