To join a Group, please click the “Join A Group” button on this page. Someone on our College Team will contact you. We have College Groups at many different times and days of the week.
Groups are simply a place where people have fun discovering their faith with a group of friends. Every Group is led by a team of Drivers, our incredible volunteers, who help guide everyone through the Bible and allow space for great discussions. Groups work together to grow spiritually by encouraging one another, listening to and praying for one another, and serving one another. Groups continue to grow by investing relationally in their friends and inviting them to join. In their Group, college students are noticed, listened to, and encouraged, which creates a sense of belonging and a trusted space for spiritual growth. That’s why we want to invite every college student to be a part of a Group!
Groups can meet at church or in homes! Most Groups have around 15 people and meet for an hour or less. The first part is for catching up, hanging out, and having fun. Next, everyone gathers together for biblical teaching and for occasional worship. Then, they discuss the Bible. Most discussions end with a time for prayer, and then everyone heads home!
Groups are a place to learn biblical truth's about your faith. Whether you have followed Jesus for years or have only just begun, Groups are designed to be a place to grow, strengthen, and live out our faith in light of the hope of Jesus.
A critical role in Groups is Drivers. Drivers are willing to use their influence to invest in their friends and invite them to their Group. Drivers work together with the College Team Staff, Hosts, and other Drivers to consistently invite new friends to Groups, plan fun activities, and help lead spiritual discussions with their peers. Please contact a member of the College Team Staff for more information about serving or starting your own Group.
Absolutely! We believe when families open up their homes for college students to meet they are a catalyst for disciple-making. They walk alongside people as they develop their relationship with Jesus Christ and encourage them to put their faith into action. We call this hosting a group, and anyone who hosts helps drive the group toward our values. Hosts are expected to open their home to their Group consistently, invest relationally, and encourage the Group Driver to navigate discussions well. We require all volunteers to submit an application, pass a background check, go through an interview process, complete a sexual abuse awareness training, participate in volunteer evaluations, and attend regular volunteer trainings. Please contact a member of the Groups Team Staff for more information about serving.
