Discipleship Ministries D Group Leader Application

Being a Discipleship Minsitries Leader is being in community with others, learning to pursue Jesus together.  Individuals organize and lead small groups centered around relationship, community, prayer, worship and spiritual practice.  

Not only do Leaders invest in their peers through weekly small groups, they also pour into and encourage each other.  Each Monday night, Leaders hear from one another, share the ways they see God at work, and explore spiritual practices.  This program utilizes Adele Ahlberg Calhoun's Spiritual Disciplines Handbook as a guide for learning and experiencing tools and habits meant to deepen and enrich the spiritual life.  Those interested in influencing, shaping, and building a community that seeks Jesus for the sake of others are encouraged to apply.

There are two types of Leaders.  

Alpha Leaders

Work with incoming freshman.  They lead a small group every Monday night on a specific freshman hall. These groups provide an opportunity to build unique and lasting community by meeting together regularly to share our faith journeys.  

DGroup Leaders

The other crew are D Group Leaders which offer campus-wide small groups.  These Leaders are encouraged to invite friends, peers in their major, fellow commuters, other transfer students, or neighbors to be part of their D Group.
