At careyBSU we understand that the future spread of the gospel is not dependent on the works of a few, but rather on the full body of Christ teaching future generations. Our goal is to make disciples that make disciples. We offers several different life groups throughout the week for both guys and gals. Life groups are small, non-threatening group environments where students can follow along with the current series, and connect with other students to gain new and deeper friendships as well as accountability and growth in their spiritual walk. These series focus on a variety of topics like book studies, topical studies, and themed studies. It is important to continually grow and encourage each other in our daily walk with the Lord.
