What are Growth Groups?
At The Summit Church in Lee’s Summit, we believe people grow best spiritually when they are connected relationally. Just as a great meal is better with friends, the sweetness of Jesus is better savored in community. Growth Groups help you to find your place in a larger church and to keep taking next steps in your relationship with Jesus. We have groups available for men, women, and couples. Groups are usually made up of 4-10 individuals or 4-6 couples.
What do groups do?
- Growth Groups usually begin on-campus for a season and then move off-campus, to a home, coffee shop or other comfortable place.
- Our groups do life together! Whether it’s watching the big game, sharing a meal together or navigating through a difficult season of life, groups become like family as they navigate real life.
- Groups typically meet once a week and go through a 6-8 week video or book study together.
- Groups pray for one another and serve the community together.
How can I join an On-Campus Growth Group?
On-Campus Growth Groups begin this fall! They meet each Wednesday from 6:30-8pm. Be sure to attend Growth Group Launch Night on Wednesday, October 3 at 6:30pm to learn more! Register online here.

Purpose of Growth Groups?
The purpose of Growth Groups is to grow deeper in your relationship with Jesus inside a small community! Eventually, we want to see everyone in a Growth Group but depending on your current season of life, groups might not be the best next step. If you're looking for a place of healing, we have Caring Communities for those struggling with addictions, the loss of a loved one, divorce and other life-battles. If this seems to be a better fit in your current season, please contact our Care Ministry Director Staci Allen or visit our Care Page.
