These areas are related to the spiritual disciplines of Abiding in Christ, Living By God’s Word, Praying in Faith, Building Godly Relationships, Witnessing to the World, and Ministering to Others.

Groups are offered each Fall/Winter and Spring semester and designed for women, men, and married adults.
