Growth Groups are one avenue of authentic spiritual growth at JBU. These peer-led groups meet weekly for fellowship, Bible-study, prayer, book discussion, or addressing special areas of interest from within the group. These groups offer a variety of time commitments ranging from a few weeks to the full year. 

In addition to small groups, Campus Ministries seeks to connect students in the pursuit of mentoring relationships.

The Office of Christian Formation asks that all students applying to be a Growth Group Leader review and agree to abide by their Statement of Faith.
