PODS stands for Personal On-going Disciple-making Squad. Fundamentally, ISBC follows Jesus' pattern for making disciples.
- Jesus ministered to the crowds (represented by our large group worship services)
- Jesus ministered to the twelve disciples (represented by our Sunday School classes)
- Jesus ministered to the "three" (Peter, James and John - represented by POD Squads)
POD Squads consist of 3-5 men or women, adult or teen, who have agreed and covenanted together to be intentional about meeting and going on a discipleship jouney. PODS begin with the end in mind... multiplication. PODS meet for a period of 12-18 months, weekly, or every other week depending upon the availability and needs of the group. At the end of the journey, the POD Squad multiplies by each member launching a new POD Squad and beginning a new journey with their new Squad.
The POD Squad focuses on the study of God's Word and learning what it means to live out the Word in life-on-life community with fellow believers united together on a journey toward Christlikeness.
