Mission Statement:

Grow groups at North Wake exist to grow in our love for God, one another, and our neighbor through the mutual encouragement of Christian community.


  • Love God
  • Love One Another
  • Love Our Neighbors


Love God

  • Pursue Christlikeness: Grow group members are called to be conformed to the image of Christ (Rom. 8:29) just like every other believer. We recognize, however, that we cannot do this in isolation, so we meet together to encourage one another to faithfully pursue godliness. Additionally, as we see others walk in obedience, we see tangible examples of Christlikeness in our brothers and sisters and are encouraged by their example.
  • Apply God’s Word: God’s Word is not merely to be heard but it is to be faithfully obeyed (Jas. 1:22). In grow groups, we get a chance to reflect on God’s Word together, especially on how the truths in Scripture are to be lived out in our various circumstances. The goal of grow group discussion is not to re-preach the sermon but carefully consider what it means to submit to God in all of life.
  • Cultivate Affection for God: As we meet together, we are called to “stir up one another toward love and good deeds” (Heb. 10:24–25). That is, we are to encourage each other to love and obey God with all of our heart, soul, mind, and strength (Mark 12:30). By praying together, sharing testimonies, praising God (in words or music), and bearing one another’s burdens, we hope to stir up affections for God in each other.

Love One Another

  • Care For One Another: We help meet the physical, spiritual, and emotional needs of our fellow grow group members. As we become aware of a member’s need, the rest of the members share those burdens (Gal. 6:2) and go through that experience with them (1 Cor. 12:26). We celebrate with one another in the good times, support one another in the hard times (Rom. 12:15), and provide for one another in practical and tangible ways (Jas. 2:14-17; 1 Tim. 5:8).
  • Mentor Each Other: Mentoring relationships (formally or informally) form as one grow group member comes alongside another grow group member and helps them assess and address their spiritual growth needs (2 Tim. 2:2). As one grow group member experiences growth in their own life, they will then go and mentor others (Matt. 28:18-20) and the whole church matures (Eph. 4:7-16).
  • Soul Care: It is within the close relationships forged in grow groups that we encourage one another to fight off temptations, put off sin (vice), and put on righteousness (virtue) as we remind each other of our new identity in Christ (2 Cor. 5:17) as well as his awesome love and power toward those who believe (Eph. 1:19). We do this as we exhort, edify, and encourage one another (Heb. 3:12-13; 1 Thess. 5:11; Heb. 10:23-25) in our pursuit of Christ-likeness together.

Love Neighbors

  • Reach Lost for Christ: God not only calls individuals to tell of Him, but also equips us in groups (Luke 10:1; Mark 6:7; Acts 13:2). We encourage one another to be ready and to intentionally find times and ways to speak of Jesus to others (1 Pet. 3:15).
  • Pray for Boldness and Opportunity: We frequently pray for each other to have opportunities to joyfully share the good news of Jesus (Eph. 6:18-20; Acts 1:14). Despite our weaknesses and fears, we trust in God’s power to work through us and in the lives of those we are sharing with (1 Cor. 2:3-5; Rom. 8:17-18; Phil. 1:27-30; Col. 1:24-29).
