Growth Groups

What is a Growth Group?Growth Group Small Banner

Growth Groups are small groups who meet regularly to share, study, serve, and support one another on their spiritual journey. Spiritual growth happens best and most often in the context of community.

Many Growth Groups are formed as gender specific or stage in life related groups. Bethel enjoys a great variety of growth groups throughout our fellowship made up of men, women, young and old. Every year we hear stories of life transformation through groups meeting in Student Ministry, Men’s Fraternity, Women’s Studies20s and 30s just to name a few.

What do Growth Groups study?

We encourage Growth Groups to use the sermon study guide found each week in our Bethel Weekly for their time of study.  Knowing the needs of their group, some Growth Groups spend a season studying a specific topic or life skill (such as FPU or parenting).

How do I join a Growth Group?

The best way to find a Growth Group is to write “Growth Group” on your response card and drop it into an offering box and one of our staff will contact you. We maintain a current list of groups looking for new members online. Please call Sueann Chase at 701.232.4476 or send her an email ( for more information about joining a group.

How do I start or lead a Growth Group?

Leading a growth group can be a great opportunity for those growing in Christ and wanting to intentionally make disciples of Jesus. If you are looking for a place to invest in others we would love the opportunity to visit with you. Our process will include training, equipping, and tools to make sure that leading a group is a fruitful ministry for you and those you serve.
