Discovery Groups are typically comprised of new disciples or disciples new to the discipleship pathway and the groups are led by facilitators who are a part of a Growth or Action Group. The core content of a Discovery Group is focused on basic discovery Bible studies that encourage disciples to learn who they are in their identity as followers of Christ. The typical Discovery Group meets weekly for five to seven weeks and covers information the Bible Studies outlined in the table below.

The Topical Studies are designed to help the disciple go deeper into the study of the Christian life. They can be completed individually or in one-on-one discipleship. The Ephesian Study is designed especially for the Discovery Group meeting with discovery questions that help new disciples grow in their belief in God, their understanding of what it looks like to live as a Christian, and the importance of gathering together as a community of believers.
