Small Groups

Ascend is not a church with small groups — we are a church of small groups.
Join a GroupStep One Class

No matter where you are on your walk with God, you need a community of brothers and sisters in Christ to support, encourage, and challenge you.

The Great Commission commands us to go and make disciples, and small groups are where we can truly make that happen.

(Matthew 28:19-20)

Smaller, Concentrated Groups = Maximum Impact

Jesus ministered to the masses, but chose a group of 12 for more intentional discipleship.

At Ascend, we gather on Sundays to worship and get equipped with the Word, then spend the week discipling one another in small groups. Each small group meets to study, fellowship with one another, and keep each other accountable in growing more Christlike.

Why Ascend small groups?
