All students are invited to join a campus small group. These groups are predominately student-led, consisting of 5-8 peers and covering a variety of topics and themes.

The heartbeat of small groups is not getting through a book or gaining knowledge about a particular topic but rather experiencing eternal life in the present. Jesus tells us, “And this is Eternal Life, that they KNOW you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent” (John 17:3). This eternal life is much more about quality of life now rather than duration of life in the future, and the knowledge Jesus is talking about is not head knowledge but experiential, heart knowledge. In a campus small group, it is our desire for students to experience the life Jesus offers through community, God’s Word, and the working of His Holy Spirit.

Small groups are open to anyone and everyone on campus. Some groups are focused on prayer and accountability, others go through a book of the Bible, and some focus on a topic such as forgiveness, shame, or slowing down from our hurried pace of life.
