About Groups

If we want to grow in our relationship with Jesus, we need to have intentional relationships with people who have the same goal. A group setting is the ideal place. We offer three types of groups to help you get connected:
ACCESS Groups are common-interest groups. Here you can build relationships with others who share a similar interest, such as mountain biking, cooking, motorcycling, photography, etc.
BASIC Groups are where the basics of the faith are discussed.
Starting Point is a 10-week class where you discover what Christianity is all about. It meets on campus. To learn more about Starting Point, contact startingpoint@encounterlife.org
1 to 1 is a chance for you to connect with another person for four meetings to “know what you believe”. To learn more about 1 to 1, contact 1to1@encounterlife.org 
COMMUNITY Groups are for relationship building and spiritual growth. We believe this is the best place for sustainable, spiritual growth. Here you will enjoy community, prayer, and Bible study while experiencing a place of belonging and support.
