Discipleship at Bethel is about doing life together with hopes of owning our faith. This is all about relationships. It's about building connections with mentors and friends who care about you and your walk with Christ. Through deep dialogue and asking good questions, discipleship groups wrestle to discover the truth of who God is and who we are as Christ-followers.
