Discovery Bible Studies

The Process of a Church Planting Movement centers around the 3 column study and the Discovery Bible Studies.

The Discovery Bible Study is not preaching or teaching, but a Bible study discussion. This means that Scripture is the authority for the group. The church planter from outside should only lead the first one or two studies.

Personal D.B.S. should be the lifestyle of every Church Planter. So begin to do 3 column studies as your personal devotion. Obedience to God through obedience to the Word must be genuine. The Church Planter learns to share this with another person and ask them to share with someone else. This is how a Church Planting Movement gets started.

And YES . . . It Can Start With You!
