One area of Bible study that has expanded in recent years is small group Bible studies, sometimes called Growth Groups. Although this approach may not work in every situation, it may be quite helpful in some. To see what this program looks like, we will have pastors from differently sized congregations tell how they conduct Growth Groups at their churches. Examples of studies they use in their groups will also be provided. This month, Pastor Scott Oelhafen of Trinity Lutheran Church, Waukesha, Wisconsin, gives us a look at his congregation’s Growth Groups program.
Pastor Scott Oelhafen serves as pastor at Trinity Lutheran Church in Waukesha, Wisconsin and oversees the church’s Growth Groups program.
