Disciple Bible Study –DISCIPLE Bible Study began in 1986 and was like a 5th child in the Wilke family – labor-intensive and sometimes quite demanding! But over time, it became clear that DISCIPLE was making a positive contribution to many around the world. DISCIPLE’s essential elements of Bible study and small group discussion drew upon the characteristics of both the early Christian Church and Methodism. DISCIPLE also had qualities of Richard and Julia Wilke’s practical ministry, including a focus on ease of accessibility and inclusion of everyone into the study of the Bible.
