DBS

4) Exactly what IS a “DBS” (Discovery Bible Study)?????????

Have you been wondering how to define a DBS? Have you heard the buzzword, but pondered exactly how it works? How does it impact lives? How is it best implemented? What kind of differences can we see when it is implemented well? We believe you’ll be thrilled when you hear these case studies and examples courtesy Engage Africa: Through disciple making movements, a video series produced by Tekmerion Productions, made possible by Final Command Ministries, in cooperation with CityTeam International. (Thanks to Jerry Trousdale for pointing us to this great resource.) Watch the entire 28-minute teaching video here:

Note that Final Command is still in talks with their production company, Tekmerion, about how to distribute this and other new films. As a result, we have to watch the video on the production website and, unfortunately, it could go away at any time. If you want to see it, better watch it soon.

3) Learn Disciple Making Movement Principles a Chunk at a Time

The idea behind the 30-Day Challenge at…group-prayer

http://www.MoreDisciples.com

is that you’ll be able to pick up Disciple Making Movement principles and practices by investing just 5-15 minutes per day during a 30-day window. Once you’ve got them “down pat” for 30 days, you’ll find they’re like any new positive habit. Maybe Christmas break is the perfect time to launch a 30-Day Challenge. Try it. You can always unsubscribe at any time. Log on to MoreDisciples and sign up for the 30-Day Challenge today.

We’re in the middle of launching a new push for “more disciples” at this new website,30-day_challenge_dare-300

http://www.MoreDisciples.com

We’re asking folks to walk with us through a 30-day challenge, during which, we’ll be challenging the global church to be the church that Jesus Christ has asked for all along. This challenge can be fulfilled by any church member, anywhere in the world. It is NOT limited just to North America. The way it works is — you sign up and for 30 days, you receive an email each day, challenging you to get “out of the box” in a new push to fulfill the Great Commission globally. Before you know it, you’ll be praying, phoning, and discipling like never before. You’ll watch 3-minute videos, complete charts, and share the Good News… and throughout the whole deal, no one will ask you for any money (disclaimer: God might inspire you to HELP someone), no one will add you to any other list without your permission, and no one will release your personal information. Basically, this is an effort to FINISH Matthew 28:19-20. It’s free of charge, but it will probably prompt you to step out on faith like you never have before. Please sign up today.

14) The BackPage: Learn to Facilitate Discovery Bible Studies (DBSes) via Video

They’re all the craze now. And for good reason. Researchers are pointing to HUNDREDS of thousands of participants in a wave of new growth in churches and homes around the world. Now, use this set of videos to get a jump-start prior to diving into your first study. There are 16 videos in all, but none is longer than 5 minutes. Watching all 16 will take you less than 80 minutes, which is approximately the length of one Bible study. (So you could, in effect, think of these 16 videos as your intro session — then start the actual method in your next session.)
