Intentional Discipling Relationships


Intentional Discipling Relationships (IDRs) are where life-change really happens. IDRs are small group communities that meet regularly to study the Bible and challenge one another to grow in love. At Safeharbor, IDRs are the next step in spiritual growth.
Check out our current IDRs below. Feel free to contact any of the group leaders with questions about their group! If you have questions about IDRs in general or if you would like to host or lead an IDR, contact our Discipleship Pastor, Kevin MacDonald.
