According to the New Testament, the church is more than Christians gathering for a public worship service. In fact, there are several other "spaces" that are necessary for discipleship and being a church on mission. And while all the spaces in the church are important, personal space is especially conducive to disciple-making. In Jesus Had a Small Group, Pastor David invites us to reflect on the model that Jesus set forth in the early church.

Jesus expected that his followers would participate in public worship, but he knew that discipleship was about going deeper in community with those committed to him and the building of the church. This is why Jesus chose a small group of disciples, and why he was always calling people out of the public space. In The Discipling-Power of Personal Space (4 of 6), Pastor David shares why small groups are a primary vehicle for making disciples at Grantham Church.
