WHAT ARE DISCOVERY BIBLE STUDIES?
Discovery Bible Studies exist to introduce people to Jesus in a highly relational and easily reproducible format utilizing personal relationships, observation of Scripture, application of Scripture, and accountability.
1-5 people with the desire to know Scripture more!
Regular meetings (we suggest weekly) to connect with one another, provide accountability, explore the storyline of Scripture, and respond in obedience.
Discovery Bible Studies are highly relational meetings that allow the text of Scripture to be the primary teacher. Because of this, participants will see an emphasis on connecting in a personal relationship as well as a study and review of Scripture that allows for internal processing and response.
