Disciple Bible Study


What is Disciple Bible Study?
Disciple Bible Study is a program of intensive, disciplined Bible study. Each study group is made up of 12-14 participants led by one or two facilitators. Groups meet weekly for 2.5 hours for 34 weeks. Disciple I, the prerequisite for all other Disciple Bible Studies, covers the entire Biblical story, from Genesis to Revelation. Subsequent studies take Disciple graduates deeper into selected portions of Scripture.

What kind of preparation does each class require?

Each weekly lesson has 6 days of daily note-taking on Bible readings and a commentary. It takes most people 20-30 minutes to complete each daily assignment. Participants are expected to come prepared to share thoughts and insights with their classmates.

What is the curriculum for Disciple Bible Study?

The curriculum for Disciple Bible Study is the Bible. A study guide with weekly commentary and questions is also included. Disciple Bible Study’s study guide draws upon the work of scholars to aid understanding of the Bible.

 How much does it cost to participate?

 What happens during a weekly group meeting?

Each week’s meeting follows a consistent structure consisting of small group & large group discussion, a video, and sharing prayer concerns. During each class, participants engage with the biblical text and seek to apply it to their own lives. The leader of the group is a learner among learners and participates as a group member but facilitates the process.

What is a Disciple Bible Study group like?

Disciple Bible Study groups develop strong relationships within the group, and over time, members become very comfortable sharing their thoughts and feelings with one another. Group meetings maintain confidentiality, which allows trust and accountability among members to flourish. Attendance at each meeting is expected.

Participating in Disciple Bible Study is a big commitment and it pays big dividends. Many graduates describe it as “life-changing.” Most people find that their knowledge and understanding of the Bible increases dramatically, but they also find their lives being transformed by the power of God working through God’s Word and the support, encouragement, and challenge of the group.
