Small Group Ministry

At Asbury, one of our purposes is to encourage people to Build Faith as they grow into mature disciples of Jesus Christ. When we participate in a small group, we are putting ourselves in a place where our faith can grow. Members of a small group share a common journey for a time. They learn, grow, share, pray, celebrate, and sometimes cry together. In small groups you can receive the encouragement, relationships and discipleship to help you know and grow in Christ.

For more information about becoming involved in a small group, please contact the church office at asbury@asburycolumbus.org.
