A discipleship triad is a group of three people of the same gender that meet once a week to go through a curriculum, hold each other accountable, pray for one another, and support one another as the group all grows to be more like Christ. These groups are modeled after the group that Jesus had. He certainly had different groups that he taught. He had the multitude like those he fed at the feeding of the 5,000, he had the 120 followers that we read about praying in the upper room in Acts, he had the 12 disciples that he spent the bulk of his time with, and he had the 3 that he took to the Mount of Transfiguration in Peter, James, and John. Jesus spent the intimate time with these three trying to bring them closer to himself and revealing his true self to them. These groups are meant to be an encouragement to you and to help you in your Christian walk. They also are a challenge to open up yourself up to accountability in your walk. These are important groups in the life of the church and for your personal growth with the Lord.
Typically, each of these groups start off somewhat timid about what is about to happen. One of the group is the leader that has just come out of one of these groups for the last 6-12 months. They are encouraged and ready to take on the task of leading. The other two in the group are new. The process of opening up and understanding each other takes some time. By the time the 8-12 months of the group is over, usually all of the people have grown immensely in their faith. We hope that each one in the group will desire to move on to lead another group of three people.
