And he went up on the mountain and called to him those whom he desired, and they came to him. And he appointed twelve (whom he also named apostles) so that they might be with him and he might send them out to preach and have authority to cast out demons.
Six steps of DLife
#1 - FELLOWSHIP
Jesus called His disciples to come and have intimate fellowship with Him.
D-Groups of three to eight people will meet weekly for fellowship, Bible study, and prayer. D-Groups can meet anytime and anywhere including coffee shops, cafes, homes, schools, parks, churches, or places of business. Those in your D-Groups may or may not go to your church. They can include family, friends, neighbors, or co-workers.
#2 - TEACHING
Jesus taught His disciples using stories and interactive group discussions.
D-Groups will use the Weekly Study Guides provided through D-Life for their daily Bible reading plan and weekly group Bible studies. Each week a different person in the group will be assigned to lead in prayer, tell the Bible story, read the passage, and facilitate an interactive group discussion by using the questions provided in the study guide.
#3 - PRAYER
Jesus prayed with His disciples and taught them how to pray.
D-Groups will pray together weekly and practice the discipline of prayer in their daily lives. Each week D-Groups will share prayer requests and a different person will be assigned to lead the group in prayer. Regardless of where they meet, D-Groups will pray for one another and for spiritual awakening in our land.
#4 - MINISTRY
Jesus did ministry with His disciples and sent them out to do ministry and evangelism.
D-Groups must share in ministry to one another and in "outside the walls" ministry and evangelism. The goal of every D-Group is to work together on one ministry and evangelism project every two months.
#5 - MULTIPLICATION
Jesus trained His followers to be disciples who make other disciples.
D-Groups will multiply within one to two years. It is not the goal of D-Groups to remain together. It is through multiplication that D-Groups fulfill the purpose of making disciples who make disciples.
#6 - ACCOUNTABILITY
Jesus held His disciples accountable to these six practices of disciple-making.
D-Groups must hold one another accountable to these six practices of discipleship. Loving spiritual accountability is vital in relationships committed to spiritual growth and personal holiness.
