The St. Clair Baptist Association is located in a strategic location Northeast of Birmingham, Alabama. St. Clair County is one of the three fastest growing counties in the state of Alabama!

The meaning of Christianity is best seen in the person and work of Jesus Christ. He is God in flesh--crucified and raised to life.

St. Clair Baptist Association and D-Life

Church Education and Discipleship Leaders: SCBA and D-Life--Mark Your Calendar

Bill Wilks, pastor of NorthPark Baptist Church, will be with us to share about D-Life--a discipleship process/material for your church. On Thursday, February 23rd at 6:00 PM, Bill will present D-Life at the SCBA Building. The presentation will last one hour. Please mark your calendar and let others know. We will send out a sign-up soon! 

What is D-Life?

Living the D-Life means living a lifestyle of discipleship. Think about it. What if you could successfully equip everyone in your ministry to live a life of discipleship? What if those in your ministry embraced discipleship as a way of life instead of a program? 

This is the purpose of D-Life. When you sign up for D-Life, you place at everyone’s fingertips the power to live a life of discipleship. The Bible and the D-Life Web App are the only tools needed to equip leaders to lead and to multiply D-Groups. D-Groups are discipleship groups of 3 to 8 people that can meet anytime and anywhere. Content on the D-Life Web App includes four years of annual Bible reading plans, weekly study guides for each D-Group, and excellent leadership resources for equipping leaders. 

D-Life is an organic, intentional, and simple process for equipping all believers for a lifestyle of making and multiplying disciples. 
 

  • • It’s Simple: D-Life is modeled after the example of Jesus and His six practices of discipleship.
  • • It’s Reproducible: D-Life is a proven plan for multiplying disciples.
  • • It’s Multigenerational: D-Life is for all ages and genders.
  • • It’s Intentional: D-Life training materials are provided for equipping leaders.
  • • It’s Transformational: D-Life is not a new program; it’s a lifestyle.
  • • It’s Affordable: D-Life is a cost efficient and priceless investment of time and resources.
