Mission Groups
Christianity is a team sport. We’re better together!

LIVE ON MISSION

Mission Groups meet all over Spokane and are focused on continuing our mission to help people find and follow Jesus. Mission Groups gather regularly, in groups of 5-12 people, to read the Bible and discuss topics focused on personal, relational, and spiritual growth. Mission Groups also go into the community to serve those who need it and to find people they love, tell them what they know about Jesus and bring them to their group or to church.

Sessions run for 3 10-week seasons of the year: fall, winter, spring, and break for the summer. Our goal is that everyone at Life Center is a part of a group for a 10-week session at least once per year. Check out the “Events” Page under “Connect” for an upcoming Launch Nights event.

If you have completed Rooted, we want to help you join a Mission Group. If you haven’t done Rooted yet, we highly encourage you to do that first.

Discovery Bible Study (DBS) is a method of disciple-making used around the world to help Jesus followers deepen their faith through obedience and help those who aren’t following Jesus fall in love with him! DBS is not about teaching others the Bible, but instead engage each person in a discussion guided by Scripture about who God is and how we can obey Jesus. The format is built on connection, discovery, obedience, and multiplication. This method is easy to learn, teach, and replicate as we carry out the commission to make disciples and disciple-makers! 

Discovery Bible Study is broken up into 3 distinct parts: Connect, Discover, Obey. Here is what groups should cover in each of those parts.

  2. What are you thankful for?

DISCOVER

  1. Have one person read the assigned Scripture once through.
  2. Have someone else read it in a different translation.
