THE 3/THIRDS IS A DISCIPLESHIP PROGRAM THAT EMPOWERS DISCIPLES TO BECOME DISCIPLE(RS).
DISCIPLE(RS): A DISCIPLE, that is READY to SERVE by helping others become a disciple of Christ.
3/Third sessions last about 90-120 minutes, so the total time should be divided into somewhat equal thirds. Each third consists of critical parts that must be included to develop the mindset of “training” through reps (repetition), rather than just teaching content.
*This group is for individuals who have grown deep in their walk with Christ, and they now desire to, “Help people find and follow Christ.”
WHAT WILL WE DO IN THE 3/THIRDS?
3/Thirds training sessions will include three essential parts: Looking Back, Looking Up, & Looking Ahead
BREAK DOWN & PURPOSE FOR THE THRIDS SECTIONS
The First Third, Looking Back, has a time of worship, a time for shared care for group members; This is also a time of accountability; and a time of casting vision. We want to encourage and celebrate what each person has done. As well as, coach and help each other overcome any difficulties that we may have encountered.
The Middle Third, Looking Up, includes time for the new lesson as we set time to seek God’s direction and instruction for each individual the next week by studying a portion of the Bible.
Final Third, Looking Ahead, allows time for the practices of the original lesson, goal setting, and prayer to equip each person through training and reinforcement. Then we set goals for the upcoming week and pray for each other in the closings.
