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.

May 2020 Intensive
Dietrich Bonhoeffer: His life and formation – led by John LaNoue
Join us for a look at the life and major works of this German pastor and theologian who was a key member of the resistance against the Nazis before and during their reign of terror. We will be specifically addressing the questions: How was he able to see so clearly when almost everyone else in Germany was losing their mind and soul to Adolf Hitler? How was he formed spiritually and what can we learn from him as we walk with Christ?
