We believe it is impossible to grow as a disciple apart from authentic biblical community.  Our discipleship model incorporates groups as an environment we prioritize in fulfilling our mission.

We offer different Group opportunities depending on your next steps:

Discovery

The purpose of Discovery is to help you discover if we are the church for you. We know that this is a very important decision. Therefore, we want to provide you with a clear picture of our church, our philosophy of ministry, as well as what it means to be a partnering member at Southbrook.

Discovery Groups are best to be done in person. We understand there are circumstances such as travel and health, so contact us if a virtual option is better for you.

Community Groups

The Bible tells us that we were never meant to live life alone. Instead, we were created for relationships. We believe it is impossible to grow as a disciple apart from Authentic-Biblical Community. Community Groups are vital to fulfilling our mission. 

These groups are the primary environment for building relationships and doing life with other believers. Within Community Groups, we discuss the truth of God's word and talk very specifically about how it applies to everyday life. You can join one at any time.

Discipleship Groups

And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20

Discipleship Groups are gender-specific groups of 3-5 growing disciples who meet weekly to make disciples who make disciples. These groups meet for 9-12 months. After that, each group member starts their own group by inviting 3-4 growing disciples.

The primary curriculum for a Discipleship Group is the Bible. We take Jesus's words seriously when He said we are to "teach others to observe all that (He) commanded". Matthew 28:20. Each group member is provided a Bible reading plan and a structured format to prayerfully journal what God is teaching you through your daily Bible reading. Then, when the group meets, they do the following:

  • Share highs and lows from the week
  • Discuss learnings from your Journal
  • Ask specific accountability questions
  • Recite the monthly Bible memory verse
  • Pray for specific non-believers by name

Discipleship Groups are the primary environment at Southbrook Church, where disciples mature by going deep with a few fellow disciples. We intentionally keep the purpose of these groups simple and focused so that each person can be confident to multiply and make disciples themselves as they start their own group. 

If you want to start a Discipleship Group, we provide training every 6 weeks. We invite you to join us as we live out our mission of glorifying God by making disciples who make a big deal of Jesus where we live, learn, work, and play.
