Covenant Discipleship Groups

Burkhead United Methodist Church is in the process of forming Covenant Discipleship groups. If you are interested in joining one, please contact the church at 336-765-6590, x3 and leave your name and phone number. Someone will be in touch with you.

Covenant Discipleship Groups are…

¨ up to 7 persons who meet for one hour each week.

¨ guided by a covenant they write, shaped by the General Rule of Discipleship.

¨ where Christians give a weekly account of how they have witnessed Jesus Christ in the world and followed his teachings, guided by the group’s covenant.

¨ where Christians help one another become more dependable disciples of Jesus Christ.

¨ a proven and effective way of nurturing and identifying leaders in discipleship the church needs to live out its mission with Christ in the world.

Below are a series of documents found on the United Methodist web site that provide more information and will enable you to get more details without having to buy the book.
