We believe the optimum environment for sustained life-change toward becoming more like Jesus is within the context of life-on-life relationships. That's why we do Life Groups. Discipleship happens when we pursue and prioritize authentic community (accountability, belonging & care) and spiritual growth (intimacy with God, community with insiders, & influence with outsiders).
In Community, we belong and become!
Grow groups are small groups of people who choose to “do life” together and draw closer to Jesus together. These groups are designed to help its members grow spiritually. They typically meet weekly for 18-24 months, and we try to keep them limited to about 12-16 people.
Interest groups are small groups of people that meet based on a common interest or activity. Some groups run quarterly or by semester. Some run all year long and just take the summer off. These fun groups are based on anything from crafting and cooking, to gaming and sports. Building community based on a common interest is a great way to start a lasting relationship.
Connect groups are a great way to just get started. They typically have a start and stop date and usually last around 6-8 weeks. So, no pressure! This is a great option to “try it out” and find a group that is right for you!
At Connect Events, we launch new groups with members who come together organically at the event. It's a fun night of connection and excitement as typically over 50 people take their next step into belonging in community!
Connect Events are hosted throughout the year. Let us know you're interested in attending the next one.
Host a Group
Anyone can host a group. We believe hosting a group is simple because we all have something to offer others. Whether it’s something you are passionate about, an experience you’ve had that can help others, or an area in which you are looking to grow, hosting a group is a great way to bring people together in meaningful community.
Be a Life Group Coach
Coaches lead their own group and use their experience and skills to mentor other group leaders to their highest potential. If you're an experience group leader, we'd love for you to help disciple some of our other leaders.
Lead a Group
Leaders go through a process to be put in position. We believe that everyone has areas of strength and gifting that could benefit others. And guess what? You don’t have to know everything in order to lead! But we do want you to take it seriously, so there’s some training involved.
