    What is the role of a discipleship group facilitator? Are you looking for resources to use in your group?

    Discipleship Group Facilitator

    A discipleship group can be facilitated by any member of Redeemer who is in good standing. We encourage people to take the initiative and start meeting regularly with one another to grow in holiness. Those interested in participating or leading a discipleship group should contact Glen Jones.

    The role of a Discipleship group facilitator is to:

    • Initiate the start of a group by seeking approval from Glen on study material (see recommended resources below)
    • Invite a few people to join them (ideally, the group size would be 3-8 people).
    • Coordinate with those in your group about meeting times.
