The purpose of DMD is to equip Christ followers at Sanctuary to carry out the Great Commission in our neighborhood and the nations. DMD is a one-year study intentionally designed to continue the process of transformation in a group setting.
Jesus came to bring a new Kingdom to earth. The initial call of Jesus is to “come, follow me.” His desire was for His disciples to become like Him, literally to re-present Him to a lost and dying world. The disciple of Jesus is called to be conformed to the image and character of our Master. Sanctuary’s expression of the call of Christ is unique. DMD is created to equip Sanctuary disciples to live out this daily, dynamic expression. The purpose of the study is to equip disciples to glorify God, to live in authentic community and to faithfully proclaim the Gospel. This process of learning will help us to be transformed to live and love like Jesus. DMD provides a Biblical foundation to nourish and cultivate life as a disciple of Christ in a relational context.
In this study you will be asked to fully engage. This study is a deep dive. It’s a high level commitment. You will be both challenged and encouraged. You’ll be expected to:
- Be willing to live out Biblical directives and implications.
- Pursue genuine koinonia
- Become and advocate for other’s marriages and families.
- Commit to completing homework and participating fully in weekly studies.
- Refuse to settle for passivity.
- Build your calendar around weekly studies.
Our weekly studies are essential to the transformation process. It’s also imperative to spend time together outside of our weekly studies as a group, and one on one. You’ll be challenged to participate in one overnight retreat, quarterly social gatherings, and monthly lunches and coffee meetings designed to deepen and strengthen individual relationships.
The cost for DMD is $100. You’ll receive a printed copy of the material, or the ability to convert the material electronically. $25.00 of your registration fee goes to administration of the ministry, the other $75.00 goes to our children’s, youth and college ministry at Sanctuary. Each study group will be paired with a small group in family ministry to begin the process of disciples making disciples right here at Sanctuary.
