In addition, I launched tiered leadership so there are regional leaders to care for and shepherd D-Group leaders. Each regional leader cares for three or four D-Group leaders in their area. I also stepped back from my primary job to focus on handling the administrative and organizational work of D-Groups. With these tasks taken care of, D-Group leaders can simply focus on facilitating meetings, praying for their members, and growing together.
My farfetched prayer has always been to see 200 D-Groups around the world. But it doesn't seem so farfetched anymore. We normally double the number of D-Groups each year, but we recently doubled in just one month. I continue to be in awe of what God has birthed out of my desire for an inch-wide group of mile-deep friends with whom to study his Word. He's granted me exceedingly more than I expected.
