A discipleship group should come together each week for accountability, training in God’s word, and a challenge to missional living. Formal meetings should last between 1 hour and 1 hour 30 minutes. Groups can meet anywhere: From the home of the group leader, to coffee shops, restaurants, even the church building. Below is a format for what groups want to accomplish when they meet together. Although a flow is helpful, be mindful of the direction of the Holy Spirit and the needs of those you are investing in.
