God has called you to make disciples. Are you on that Pursuit?


Our Discipleship path is simple. Read the Bible, join a biblical community, and reach Odessa.

1. Read the Bible.

Everyone needs a Bible Reading plan, a Scripture memory plan and a journal.

2. Join a biblical community.

Everyone needs community. We have Life Groups and D-Groups. Life Groups focus on four primary values: Learn the Bible. Invite others. Make Friends and Evangelize the lost. Life Groups are open groups that meet on the campus on Sunday mornings and is your first step for community.

List of Life Groups

D-Groups are smaller groups (3-5 same gender) that meet at various times and locations to focus on spiritual disciplines, accountability, focused teaching and leadership development. The goal of D-Groups is to help each member become a multiplying disciple-maker.

3. Reach Odessa

Everyone needs to be on mission. The mission for our church is to reach Odessa, the Permian Basin and the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ.  

If you are interested in using your gifts and talents for the gospel, or want to know more about our membership process, attend the Discover Class. This class is not only designed to inform, but also to help you find ways to serve and meet the staff.
