Thrive Pathway Activity 71

Start A Grow Group

Being part of a Grow Group is one of the best ways for people to thrive in their relationship with Christ. Grow Groups function best in groups of 10-15 people because they have opportunities to grow deep relationships - sharing struggles, joys, and sharing how God is working in others’ lives.

Mature Christians are challenged to start Grow Groups in order to provide the most possible opportunities for others to participate.

Starting a Grow Group does NOT require you to be a strong leader, a great teacher, or a ‘perfect’ Christian. It simply requires a facilitator who is willing to step forward to find people who will join a Grow Group as the teacher and leader. The primary skill required is a willingness to allow God to use you to grow a group of people in their faith.


Proverbs 27:17
“As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.”

1 Thessalonians 5:11
"Therefore encourage one another and build each other up.”
