DBS Groups Are Seeing Thousands of Attendees

In nations filled with Hindus, Buddhists, and Muslims, how do you launch DBS groups? Starting in December of 2019, RUN Global sent teams into villages to gather crowds by announcing skit performances. Villagers would flock to see Bible stories as recited from memory—and then volunteers were brought forward to act the stories aloud!

A favorite presentation is “The Good Samaritan” as we ask “Who was the good neighbor?” A Samaritan, despised by Jewish people, stops to rescue a Jewish man in true compassion. This “skit” transitions easily to gospel sharing.

We still have reluctant listeners after the Samaritan skit, but many of the unreached villagers want to hear more Bible stories. Our teams collect information and return to create DBS groups, many of which grow to become churches filled with new, joyous converts!

A RUN Global Success Story

RUN Global’s DBS groups have grown substantially, now with over 3,500 DBS groups with over 15,000 Hindu, Buddhist, and Muslim members. Hindus learn to discard the hated caste system for the unconditional love of God. Buddhists ground in the reality of the cross of Christ, and Muslims are finding the assurance of faith they lack in their system of endless groveling before God.

Another innovation has been implemented in 2021—the DBS model. Other evangelists and church planting movements are visiting villages to look for “people of peace” who aren’t yet born-again Christians but remain open to learning more. Often, people of peace are just that—peaceable people who are influencers in their communities. We’ve seen churches established this way!
