Teaching Groups are environments that meet for shorter seasons of time while focusing on specific topics of growing your faith in Jesus. These groups are designed to help you take your next step with Jesus in very specific areas of your walk. These groups are designed for all types of people in all seasons of life. We have groups for men, women, engaged/newly married couples, financial freedom, recovery, and so much more. Teaching groups are designed to focus on a specific topic and audience for a specific period of time. Once a teaching group concludes you then will be given opportunities to join a connect or house group.

She knows what it's like to struggle with debilitating shame, guilt, and fear. She rejoices in the healing that God has done in her life and desires for other women to receive the same healing so they may walk in freedom.
Emily is honored to be leading this recovery group. While far from perfect, the Lord has done a redemptive work in her heart to free her from the bonds of sexual sin.

She believes that God has more for His daughters than to remain trapped in sexual sin and bound by shame and she is ready to engage in the battle to take back that territory for His Kingdom.
