DISCIPLESHIP IS ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS.
God's GROW Story
God is telling a story, and our individual stories fall within the same framework of creation-fall-redemption-restoration. His story involves the reconciliation of all things back to himself.
How God Is Telling His GROW Story
Growth is God's work in our relationships individually within the context of community. God promises to continue the good work he has started in us until it is complete.
Jesus discipled the "crowds," the "72," the "12," and the "3." Rivertree's GROW strategy helps disciples of Jesus move from larger community gatherings to smaller relational environments.
MEN'S FALL RETREAT
The men of Rivertree are invited to retreat at the Promise Land in Estill Fork, AL, 45 minutes away from the church campus, on Friday, October 19 and Saturday, October 20. Bruce Martin is serving as the retreat speaker and will be encouraging our guys in the areas of the worth, work, and walk of a man. This will be a great chance for guys to rest, learn, and play while sharing meals and life with other Rivertree men over the course of the weekend.
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. Our men's and women's ministries exist to help one another grow in Christlikeness in recognition that "two are better than one because they help each other succeed" (Ecclesiastes 4:9). We want you to be known, encouraged, discipled, and cared for by others. We all need safe community ready to enter our struggles and be part of our becoming. We know you’ll be set up for success if you have other people around you championing your faith.
Jesus gives us the ability to experience life as God intended, in real community with him and one another. This is why we have men's and women's ministries. These opportunities include Bible studies, D-Groups, conferences, retreats and events to connect you with God and others. We demonstrate the gospel to one another and the world around us through the sharing of our lives in authentic Christian community.

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).
