Gospel Communities

Gospel Communities are the Shifts expression of “Small Groups”

Our primary goal with our Gospel Community Groups are to cultivate a welcoming and safe environment for people to experience grace and truth in a loving and biblical community. To be apart of a spiritual family where you can know and be known


We aim to provide Discipleship, Care and Accountability within a group context


Our groups are meant to be the Larger Church, getting small. 

Reflecting a Diverse Church Community: young and old, rich and poor, married and single, all gathering around the Gospel of Jesus Christ. 


Our focus is growing in our Gospel Identity, Living in Gospel Community and being on a Gospel Mission.



If you would like to be apart of a Gospel Community Group, there are two options:

  1. You can look through all of our existing groups, some of our groups are open and have room for more and some are full. If you find a group you are interested in you can email the leader to check out their group.


  1. You can Sign up to be apart of a GC and we will either place you in an existing group or one of our new groups that will be launching in the future. 


These Gospel Communities are official groups at The Shift. If you choose to be apart of one of these groups or desire to lead one you will be fully supported by The Shift staff. Training, Accountability, encouragement, and support will be present for every leader and group.
