Discipleship Ministry


Our relationship with Jesus and our relationships with one another.

Discipleship groups are some of the best places for meaningful relationships to develop and for sustained spiritual life-change to occur.

Canvas Discipleship Groups are about doing life together and walking in the direction of Jesus.

Canvas has three different types of groups that help us grow as disciples through life-giving relationships with Jesus and one another in our faith family.


PURPOSE: Discipleship Prayer groups help us experience spiritual growth and develop meaningful friendships.

WHO: 4-8 men or women


LOCATION: homes, coffee shops, parks, or wherever is best for the group.

LEADER: DP groups are a beautiful picture of iron sharpening iron. The group exists to uplift and encourage one another.

CONTENT: Celebrate how God is working, share what you are learning from God’s Word, discuss the issues and challenges of life, and spend time praying together.


PURPOSE: Life-groups are designed to foster community across our faith family.  

WHO: 4-8 families or 6-15 people

FREQUENCY: Flexible. At least once a month but ideally two to four times a month

LOCATION: homes, parks, or wherever is best for the group.

LEADER: A life-group facilitator guides the conversation on what time, day of the week, and location works best for their group. The life-group learns from each other as they discus the Bible and share experiences together

CONTENT: Eat together, laugh together, celebrate together, play together, pray together, care for one another, and learn together from God’s Word.

*Currently Canvas has life-groups available in English, Spanish, and Cantonese.


PURPOSE: Tap into resources that have been designed to help us learn about the Christian faith
