Why do we call them G4 groups?

G is for gospel-centered groups. Rather than making an issue, struggle, or sin the centerpiece of our groups, we strive to make the gospel of Christ the core of all our groups. Our identity is not found in an issue but in an individual — the person of Christ.

4 designates the four types of groups offered:

  • Recovery: Groups for those struggling with a life-dominating sin, addiction, or traumatic life event.
  • Support: Groups for those needing encouragement and support during a period of suffering or hardship.
  • Therapeutic educational: Groups for those needing information and/or resources about a specific life issue.
  • Process: Groups for those needing help processing problematic emotions or multiple life stressors.

Core Values

  • Bible-based and gospel-centered.
  • Recognize the difference between sin and suffering.
  • Built on honesty and transparency.
  • Uphold confidentiality.
  • Avoid struggle-based identity.
  • Blend discipleship, accountability, and a guided process.
  • Transitions into larger small group ministry.
