Small group (4-7) of Jesus followers who recognize the value of journeying with other people for mutual support, encouragement and accountability. They have a very specific target: To be an authentic follower of Jesus, who is becoming like Jesus in order to do the kinds of things Jesus did and to effectively participate in his great vision for our world.
They are different from traditional Bible Studies in that the goal of these groups is to become an active, empowered and effective disciple who can make disciples. The study is not for the purpose of Bible knowledge alone. Instead, JOURNEY GROUPS help us find ways to incorporate the life-giving truth of the Bible into our lives and to tell others how God is actually changing our lives.
The groups are built around a disciple making process that everyone can learn and use in their own lives to disciple other people; whether they are children, spiritual seekers, or other believers who are wanting to grow. The process is one of discovery and not one of being taught what to believe and think. You will learn a simple discovery process built around a series of questions that always center on a passage of God’s Word. There is no leader of these groups, just a guide or facilitator who asks questions rather than teaches. Ultimately, we want the Holy Spirit to be given the primary role of teaching (John 16:7-15, I Cor. 2:6-16, Rom. 8:5-17)
