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.

Fall 2018 Growth Group Registration is CLOSED.

Registration for a Spring 2019 Small Group will open on January 1. Spring Growth Groups will start meeting the week of February 10
