Discover your community at the Ridge

If you call Austin Ridge home, we want you to have people to do life with, to connect with on a deeper level, and to grow with spiritually. Life Groups are small communities of people from the Ridge who meet regularly in neighborhoods around the region and typically share the same season of life.

Groups meet for spiritual conversation, encouragement, community, and to grow as Jesus followers. No matter your church background, a Life Group is a great place to build relationships and study God’s Word.

Frequently Asked Questions

Life Groups were designed specifically to help you find and build community with other people at the Ridge.

Each Life Group will have its own unique structure, but there will be a rhythm of meeting and sharing life, studying the Scriptures, and serving together in the community.

Most groups will spend time sharing a meal, walking through part of their study, and praying together.

This varies from group to group.

  • Holly Dvorak

    Holly Dvorak

    Originally from Virginia and more recently a resident of Charlotte, North Carolina, Holly and Todd relocated to Austin in 2018. God’s perfect timing led them to Texas just as the youngest of their three sons graduated from college. Now that their boys live all over the United States, their favorite pastime is planning great trips and adventures where they can reconnect as a family and enjoy the amazing scenery and handiwork of God. On a more personal note, Holly's passion for all things "organization" has been a blessing to the many homes and families she has served over the years as a family manager coach. Now, God is using those gifts and talents at the Dripping Springs campus.
