Rivertree believes that discipleship is about relationships and happens within the context of relationships. We have the opportunity to be part of one another’s discipleship as we help one another know Jesus by sharing the gospel and our lives. Below, you can read about several different ways to develop meaningful relationships and pursue discipleship at Rivertree.
Life Groups serve as one of our primary environments for adult discipleship. Involvement in this ministry helps individuals experience deeper levels of Christian community beyond initial connections made on Sunday morning. Life Groups are small groups of 10-12 people involved in one another's discipleship. They are open groups that meet in various places and at various times throughout the week for the purpose of discipleship, care and encouragement.
D-Groups are gender-based discipleship groups made up of 3-5 men or women. This ministry exists to help individuals experience deep friendships and spiritual growth through closed groups that process a 24-lesson curriculum.
D-Groups serve as a place for you to be vulnerable and transparent about what is going on in your life and discover how to walk with God each day regardless of your circumstances. Groups meet for one year before members are encouraged to start new groups.
Throughout the year, we offer opportunities for men and women to help one another know Jesus by sharing the gospel and their lives. We are here to help one another in recognition that "two are better than one because they help each other succeed" (Ecc. 4:9). We're helping one another know Jesus because we "consider everything else worthless compared to the infinite value of knowing him" (Philippians 3:8). We help one another know Jesus by sharing the gospel. This is the good news that God himself has come to rescue and restore creation in and through the work of Jesus Christ on our behalf.
We demonstrate the gospel to one another and to the world around us through the sharing of our lives. Jesus gives us the ability to experience life as God intended, in real community with him and one another. Living together in community, reconciled and united by the cross, is a physical demonstration of the grace of God.

As part of our desire to help one another know Jesus by sharing the gospel and our lives, we offer classes and events throughout the year to promote understanding and application of biblical truth. These strategic environments support Rivertree’s core values- Being Christ-Centered, Believing People Matter, Sharing Life Together, Serving Others First and Pursuing What’s Next. The goal of these learning experiences is to plant and water seeds of truth to cultivate spiritual growth and maturity in our lives. Through classroom instruction and interaction, we are learning to “consider everything else worthless compared to the infinite value of knowing him” (Philippians 3:8).
