Ridge Student Small Groups


Small Group Registration


The purpose of Ridge Student Small Groups is to create an environment where students can GROW in their relationship with Jesus. We believe this best happens in the context of intentional, relational discipleship.

During the Fall and Spring Semesters, 9th-12th-grade students meet weekly during the evenings in homes around Austin Ridge Bible Church to GROW in their walk with Christ and build authentic accountability and community.

This ministry is designed to help students grow spiritually through three key aspects: Community, Word, and Prayer.

We strongly believe that every student should be a part of a small group. It is a great way to get plugged into the High School Ministry and to grow in your faith!

*Small Groups are not scheduled to meet in the summers.




We are always looking for Host Homes. If you have an interest in or have questions about hosting your student’s Small Group, please contact Abbey Cannon at abbey.cannon@austinridge.org or simply note interest when your student registers.
