Study GrOups Growing in knowledge and community!

Leader: Chad and Marie Wiles

Purpose

The purpose of Study Groups is to give the people of The Field Church opportunities to study a topic and/or specific scriptures within the community of believers.

Function

Study Groups will be small groups of 2-5 people that sign up for specific studies which can be found on our Study Group page. New Study groups will begin each month and registration will be closed once the study begins. You can find upcoming studies and sign up here!

In addition to Study Groups, we will have Open Groups which will be ongoing informal gatherings that facilitate friendships and encourage one another in the faith. These groups will not require sign ups. To see the current open groups, follow this link!

Growth Discipleship learning to walk with christ!

Leaders: Chad & Marie Wiles 

Purpose 

To help the disciple live out the spiritual disciplines personally, grow deeper in their love for God, and grow in their love for the lost around them. Additionally, Growth Discipleship trains and teaches disciples to organically build relationships with the lost in their world and to share the gospel regularly and effectively. 

Function

Growth Discipleship functions more organically, but will have structured times of training. There will be regular Multiplication Seminars (co-ed, emphasis on learning to share your faith effectively/lifestyle evangelism) and Discipleship Training (men’s and women’s, walking through a Bible study/discipleship tool). Growth Discipleship also encompasses discipleship coordination, facilitating Bible studies and creating new material for Christian growth, support of “disciplers,” and opportunities for observation.
