What is a DMI?
Disciple Making Intensives (or DMIs) are designed to provide our church body with practical training and tools to help each person discover his/her role in fulfilling the Great Commission. These groups come together for ten weeks to pray, study disciple-making, and plan how they will put into action what they are learning. These meetings are full of excitement as team members report what they saw God do through them that week.
When do DMIs take place?
Groups meet around Austin at different times and days of the week, and typically run during the spring, summer, and fall seasons.
Who should be in a DMI?
DMIs are for anyone who desires to learn practical tools to advance the gospel wherever they are placed in their community – whether that’s within the city or among the nations. Groups normally consist of six to twelve people.
What happens in a DMI?
Over the course of ten weeks, members will read through the book Spiritual Multiplication in the Real World by Dr. Bob McNabb and go through an accompanying study guide. Each week, the group will meet to report on what God has been doing in answer to prayers, through new relationships, and members’ personal growth. DMIs also practice the rhythms of 3-2-1, a weekly time commitment of three hours with Jesus, two hours training with believers among the lost, and one hour in corporate prayer for the harvest.
I’m interested. What’s my next step?
