We all need a community where we can connect, learn, share, and belong. Walking with God was never meant to be a solo experience; it’s a relational experience! We’ve discovered many Christians are looking for these types of communities without any success.
A lack of belonging can lead to isolation and block your path to a deeper walk with God. It doesn't have to be that way!
Transformation is happening!
Journey Groups have been incredibly transformative for members. Here are just a few of the testimonies we’ve received:
“These lessons and this group have absolutely changed my life.”
“It is wonderful seeing God working in each one, and I’ve become more compassionate and understanding.”
“This is exactly what I have been craving and needing! Powerful connections and a bond of joy.”
Answers to questions you may have:
A Journey Group is a small group which meets once a week either locally or online in a video meeting to share their journey of growth in freedom and identity in Christ, relational skills, maturity, walking by the Spirit, and creating connection and community in a way that cultivates a deeper walk with God.
Level 1 refers to the first 6 units of Journey Group curriculum, so a Level 1 group is simply a Journey Group. There are 39 weekly lessons in the Level 1 Journey Group curriculum.
Discover Journey Group is an 8 week overview of the Journey Group concepts and practices. This provides a good opportunity to experience a Journey Group. Many Discover Groups continue straight into the Level 1 Journey Group curriculum, but Discover Groups are a standalone option.
The Journey Groups listed on the Deeper Walk website are offered by Certified Journey Group Leaders. These certified leaders have participated in a Journey Group, completed the Certified Journey Group Leadership Training Program and Deeper Walk Institute Course 1, and will be experienced with Life Model concepts of belonging, attachment, maturity, healing from trauma, and tuning in to God’s perspective.

Yes, usually. Journey Groups listed on the Deeper Walk website are offered by Certified Journey Group Leaders who have been trained by Deeper Walk and participate in a monthly community of JG leaders. Each group leader sets the price for monthly membership in their JG, but the typical price is $30/month. Deeper Walk does not collect or disburse payments for Journey Groups. Rather, each leader is responsible for administrating their group, including payment arrangements.
Originally, Deeper Walk handled all the administration for Journey Groups, including payments from members and to group leaders.
However, as Journey Groups began to multiply, the administration required began to create a bottleneck and limit the growth of this life-changing ministry.
At Deeper Walk, our desire is to see exponential growth of Journey Groups so that tens of thousands of Christians can meet every week, cultivating community, connecting deeply with God, living out the love of Christ to their families, and show Jesus to the world day by day.
In order to move toward this goal, Deeper Walk will continue to train and support leaders through the Certified Journey Group Leadership Program, while each trained leader will now guide and administrate their own groups.
