At BCC, we have a very simple disciple-making strategy: Connect » Grow » Go. Everyone seems to be busy and studies have shown that an increase in church activities does not necessarily predict spiritual growth. Because of this, we try to minimize church activities while maximizing relationships – taking discipleship out of the classroom and putting it where we see it in scripture – into our every-day life relationships. Growth begins in the context of intentional relationships of small groups, our Men’s & Women’s Ministries and formal service opportunities.

Small Groups are not a program of the church – Small Groups ARE the Church. Jesus commands the Church to make disciples. At BCC, our primary goal is to get people connected in intentional relationships of a Small Group. Small Groups are more than a meeting, bible study, support group, or social club. Our groups offer a relational space for friends to debrief life together through the lens of scripture and to help one another obey God’s leading in their lives. Because of the size of a small group, they can offer the accountability and life support necessary to live and love like Jesus. This means laying down our lives and demonstrating a 2nd-mile, sacrificial love to an onlooking world. As new leaders emerge from these communities, new groups are able to form. This increases both our influence in the community and our capacity for discipleship.
