Life groups and d-Groups

We believe that spiritual growth is accelerated and deepened in community with others seeking a closer walk with Jesus. Jesus understood this. He spent time with his twelve disciples (Life Groups) and His inner circle of three disciples: Peter, James, and John (D-Groups). Both groups are structured to grow committed followers of Jesus. Since each type of group has a different emphasis, people are encouraged to be in both a Life Group and a D-Group.


life groups

  • 8-16 people gathering for Bible study, service, food, and fun
  • We offer mixed, men's, or women's groups


  • 3-5 people of the same gender who meet for 12 to 18 months
  • Deeper Bible study and accountability


  • Meet at various times and days at the church or other locations around Columbus
  • Weekly or bi-weekly

  • Childcare is handled according to the group's needs, encouraging kids to play together and develop deeper friendships
  • During trying times, Life Groups are usually "first responders" in prayer, meals, and support for one another
  • Occasionally Life Groups gather to just hang out (i.e. go out for pizza or do a service project)
  • A typical group format begins with food/snacks and fellowship, then 30 to 45 minutes of group study, and concludes with prayer
