Indicators of biblical basis:

– is it building Christian disciplines
Prayer, Word, Acts 2:42 (ESV)
The Fellowship of the Believers
[42] And *they devoted themselves to the apostles‘ *teaching and the *fellowship, to *the breaking of bread and the prayers.
– Is it training leaders to develop Christian disciplines?
