Discipleship Pathway

The journey of spiritual growth at Hallmark is thoughtfully designed to guide you through a transformative process, known as the Discipleship Pathway.

The pathway is categorized into three stages:

Crowd is where your journey begins. It invites everyone to participate in various events and services that Hallmark offers. This phase is crucial as it allows you to experience the warmth and welcoming spirit of our church community and understand our values.

Community is where you are encouraged to deepen your connection with the church by becoming a member and joining a Connect Group. We want you to have a sense of belonging as you foster deeper relationships with other followers of Jesus.

Core is designed for those who are ready to not just attend but grow in their faith and serve others. This stage is where faith and action converge, leading to profound personal growth and a positive impact on the community around you.

Start a D-Group

Discipleship is a process of equipping believers with the Word of God through accountable relationships empowered by the Holy Spirit in order to replicate faithful followers of Christ.

Discipleship Groups (D-Groups) at Hallmark are gender-specific, closed groups of 3-5 believers that meet weekly for a season of accelerated spiritual transformation.

The goal of D-Groups at Hallmark is to create a place where life change can happen in you and your group members by being Missional, Accountable, Reproducible, Communal, and Scriptural.
