Growth Groups

An Important Part of Spiritual Life

“We loved you so much that we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well, because you had become so dear to us.”
—1 Thessalonians 2:8

Growth Groups at Grace College are an important part of the spiritual life of each student. These are small groups of students from your residence hall who meet weekly for encouragement, bible study, and prayer. Each group is led by a Growth Group Leader (GGL), an upper class student volunteer. GGLs are part of a floor leadership team that are chosen to help provide spiritual development for the students entrusted to them.

Growth Groups provide an atmosphere of Relationship, Encouragement, Accountability, and Love both corporately and individually.
