A Purposeful Living INC (In Christ) Growth Group is a faith-based group lead by a trained growth group leader, to help ladies engage in the growth process. A Growth Group is a place where participants are loved and accepted where they are and encouraged to become all that they can be.
We believe that growth occurs in a safe community with grace, truth, and time. Growth Groups are cohorts of dedicated, like-minded women coming together in locations across the area for mutual support and encouragement as we seek to embrace God’s perspective on the path of growth. We seek to grow, not only spiritually, but also emotionally. Come join us as we grow together in the My Identity Series.
This year’s theme for Growth Groups is My Identity. We will explore how we mask our true identity with the roles we take on in life. Often, our identity is influenced by several factors, which can include motherhood, work & career, marital status, trauma, wealth, or beauty. The sessions will delve into each of these and we hope you’ll leave knowing that you are accepted, chosen, and enough. In line with our core values, this exciting series will not only help you grow in confidence of who you are, but will positively influence the other areas of your life.

About Growth Groups
Growth Groups are a combination between a support group and a life group. We strive to be a non-judging group for support and growth where we hold a space for sharing and attunement while not offering advice or trying to fix others. The group is a safe, sacred and confidential space for healing, growth and restoration.
A Growth Group cohort, based on study content, is a 7-10 session group that meets for approximately 2 hours each session on a bi-weekly basis. A 2-hour sample meeting schedule includes:
- Welcome, icebreaker, networking (5-15 min)
- Faith-based video teaching with corresponding lesson guide (20-30 min)
- Discussion question roundtable and sharing (45-60 min)
- Share individual key take-ways, assign group connection partners, and discuss next steps (15-30 min)
Growth group cohorts launch in the spring and fall taking time off for the summer and the busy holiday seasons.
We desire that group members participate in each session as much can be missed at one session due to the connectedness that comes from a group sharing together. We ask that each person not miss more than two classes, when committing to the cohort. We strive to be vulnerable and share with one another and this becomes difficult if women are unable to get to know and learn to trust one another at each session.
Purposeful Living offers materials at no cost. Donations to Purposeful Living are appreciated, but certainly not required.
Growth Group leaders are women in our community who volunteer and have a heart to serve and support you. Leaders are trained in the practice of attunement and facilitation. Attunement includes listening and connecting with other’s emotions and ensuring the person feels understood, acknowledged and accepted. Leaders receive ongoing training in the Purposeful Living Growth Group Leadership Team, including a multi-session training before leading, followed by monthly trainings throughout their service as a volunteer. The initial trainings are offered during the summer months and if you are interested in volunteering, please contact us at email@example.com for more information.
