What are Growth Intensives?
Six times a year, we offer Growth Intensives as a supplement to the Grow Group experience. Growth Intensives are an opportunity for short-term, intensive engagement with a topic that will help people grow to become more like Jesus. They are focused on a wide variety of engaging subjects and are designed for people at all stages of their spiritual journey.
Some intensives meet on Sunday mornings between Grow Group semesters, while others may meet on a weeknight or weekend during a Grow Group semester. Most intensives are one-time events, although some may include opportunities for follow-up conversations. Many involve a bit of advance reading to help the participants be as prepared as possible for the conversation.

Bridge Building: Learning to Connect with Your Indian Neighbors
Over the last several years, thousands of people (primarily Hindus) have relocated from India to our neighborhood. As followers of Jesus, we are called to love our neighbors as ourselves, but the cultural differences can make this a challenge! This informative Growth Intensive will include the basics of Hindu culture/spirituality and and obstacles that Hindus often encounter when learning about Jesus. We will also be learning about building relationships, engaging in spiritual conversations, and practical ministry tips for our interaction with our Hindu neighbors.
