D-Life is not a program; it's a lifestyle.
D-LIFE IS BIBLICAL
D-Life involves reading and discussing the Bible. The Bible is your only text book.
D-LIFE IS MISSIONAL
D-Life involves participating in ministry and evangelism outside the walls of the church.
D-LIFE IS REPRODUCIBLE
D-Life involves making disciples who make disciples. It's simple and reproducible.
The 6 Practices of D-Life
The D-Life process is modeled after Jesus and His 6 practices of disciple-making.
#1 - FELLOWSHIP
Jesus called His disciples to come and have intimate fellowship with Him.
D-Groups of three to five 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 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 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 equipped His disciples for the work of 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 will hold one another accountable to these six practices of disciple-making. Loving spiritual accountability is vital in relationships committed to spiritual growth, missional ministry, and multiplication.
