What is DNOW?


Student ministries across the Country have witnessed the life-changing effects of Disciple Now (aka: DNOW) weekends. They have seen students and adults accept the challenge to grow as disciples of Christ issued during the intense format of a weekend focused on their walk with the Lord. DNOW has grown to be one of the most effective tools in youth ministry. Millions of students have participated in one of these life-changing weekends. Some of the most successful Student ministers in the country claim that DNOW has had more impact spiritually on their students than any event they do all year!

DNOW is a weekend retreat where small groups of students meet in the homes of church members for studies in discipleship. The studies are led by trained adult leaders with the goal of beginning or strengthening the ongoing process of discipleship in each student’s life.  DNOW features concentrated Bible study with an emphasis on discipleship, fellowship, recreation, and evangelism – and it supports the ongoing ministry of the local church; it doesn’t attempt to take its place.

One of DNOW’s strongest points is the way it draws upon, and unites the entire church through using people to contact students, serve on help-teams, provide meals, host groups in their homes, and pray for students.  In short, DNOW weekends are successful not just because of catchy-theme or magnetic leaders, but because of committed people who support the endeavor!  Will you?
