The Equipped Disciple is a multi-course small group curriculum produced by MDPC Equipping Pastor, Rev. Dr. Clay Brown. Each of the six study categories in the series consists of six weekly studies. The first three were introduced in 2020; the next two in 2021; and the last study will roll out in early 2022.
In The Growing Disciple’s six sessions, your group will focus on five spiritual practices every Christian needs: Bible Study, Prayer, Witness, Service, and Generosity. We’ll also read Mark’s Gospel devotionally and memorize Colossians 2:6-7 together.
The Witnessing Disciple is the second study in The Equipped Disciple multi-course small group curriculum produced by MDPC. In The Witnessing Disciple, we focus on recognizing and enjoying how God often works through spiritual conversations. We'll talk about our faith stories and practice with one another how to share the good news of Jesus when the Holy Spirit creates opportunities. We'll study Scripture, read part of Acts devotionally, and memorize Matthew 28:18-20 together.

You can download the 6-session small group course for your use anytime. It is in a fillable PDF format, so you are able to type your responses to study questions into the file itself.

This course, The Praying Disciple, has the sub-title Experiencing Peace through Fellowship with God. Each session will focus on one specific aspect of prayer that will enable you, with the Holy Spirit’s help, to be a faithful practitioner of prayer. As you pray faithfully in each circumstance, you will experience God’s peace.
Most sessions will include study and discussion on a biblical passage relevant to the spiritual practice of prayer. Also, each session will include opportunities to grow in your other spiritual practices, such as devotional reading and Scripture memory.
In The Serving Disciple, each session will focus on one specific aspect of service that will enable you, with the Holy Spirit’s help, to be a faithful servant of Jesus Christ as you grow in the fruit of the Spirit, discover and apply your spiritual gifts, and share the good news of Jesus through your service.
In The Giving Disciple: Living the Gospel through Generosity, each session will focus on one specific aspect of giving that will enable you, with the Holy Spirit’s help, to be a joyful, generous follower of Jesus Christ as you live out the gospel day to day.
