Small Groups


Groups have one, simple purpose: to bring people together. We believe God created us to live in relationship with others and only then can we live the full life He intends for us. Sharing life through community is part of our design, but meaningful relationships aren’t always easy to find. That’s why Groups exist—to make these life-changing relationships relevant and accessible to you.

The groups consist of people who want to study the Bible, fellowship, pray and serve. You also will mature as the group stays accountable to each other and learn to use their gifts. To keep the group small and intimate we like to see a maximum of 12 people.

Men, Women, Couples, Teens & College Groups

There are groups just for men or just for women. Couples meet and we have groups for teens and college students.  You can select which day of the week is best for you. Most groups meet twice a month on the same day of the week. Meetings are held at the church, homes, businesses and even coffee shops.

Meetings are designed to last approximately 90 minutes. Everything that is shared in the group is confidential.


Leading a Group isn’t about being perfect; it’s about serving others by giving them a place to connect. Hosting a group is simple—choose a topic that interests you and select a time and location to meet with others to share it. We give you essential tools to make your Journey Group successful through Leadership Training and a directory where you can register your group so others can find it easily. We believe people’s lives are changed one semester at a time by moving one step toward Christ, and as a Group leader you get to play an important role in that process.
