A DNA group is 3-4 people of the same gender who meet regularly to foster discipleship relationships that help one another grow to become more like Jesus through life-on-life interaction. As disciples, we want to experience transformation that affects our whole person: head, heart, and hands. DNA is an acronym that describes this process: Discover (teach the head), Nurture (shepherd the heart), and Act (empower the hands).

Below are guides and resources developed to help equip our DNA groups to be more effective in shepherding and caring for one another.
