Growth Groups

The first step in discipleship at GBC is joining a Growth Group. Growth Groups meet for two semesters and cover some of the most foundational truths and ministry skills needed to participate in God’s Kingdom work. Participation in a Growth Group is a big commitment! We ask each participant to complete 5 lessons each week and then discuss those lessons in a 2-hour weekly meeting with their group. Growth Group is hard work, but it prepares people for a lifetime of fulfilling ministry.

Registration for a Spring 2018 Growth Group is closed.

To register for the Spring 2018 Growth Group Late Registration, please use the following LINK. Even though registration has closed, it is our desire that everyone participate in a Growth Group. We will do our best to get you placed into a group, but it depends on availability of spots.

In order to register you will need to log-in using your GBC Connect account. If you do not have an account, you will be able to create a new account.

In order to encourage opportunities for discipleship with those older or younger than you, each Growth Group is filled with people of varying ages and stages of life. We will do our best to accommodate requests but cannot guarantee you will receive your first preferences.
