Join us sundays at 9:30 am

The Christian life is never meant to be lived alone but as a participating member of the body of Christ.

“Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it.” (1 Corinthians 12:27)


Life together is an important means of grace that God intends for blessing and building his Church. Organized discipleship groups are simply a tool to provide opportunities for developing real relationships that lead to Biblical one-anothering. They are a key element in the spiritual care of people at Branson Bible Church.

The Purpose for Our Discipleship Groups:

  1. To develop authentic relationships
  2. To make real-life application of Biblical truth
  3. To hold one another accountable to pursue holiness and faithful ministry

Our goal is to grow in love for Christ, for each other as members of his body, and to encourage one another to love and good works. This happens as we increase in our knowledge of God’s Word and apply it to our hearts. We seek to do this in discipleship groups through Bible study, prayer, service, and fellowship. 

“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” (Colossians 3:16–17)


List of Groups:

Central Group

Leader: Ronnie Ritchey
Our group meets in the church fellowship hall Sunday evenings at 5:30 pm. to discuss the sermon. We are comprised of mostly older folks, but we are desirous that all ages meet with us. We seek to better understand the morning message and to apply it to our daily living. We also enjoy a time fellowship with snacks and light meals.

North Group

Leader: Ryan Toliver
Description: Our group consists primarily of families with children, although we do have a range of individuals, from singles to those who have progressed beyond having kids in the home. We enjoy a relaxed atmosphere in which the discussion is the primary means of diving further into the text from the Sunday sermon in order to encourage and spur one another in our spiritual walk. Time is also spent in enjoyment of a shared meal and the sharing of prayer requests and other life concerns for promotion of deepening relationships with both the Lord and each other.

Northwest Group

Leader: Rob Holland
Description: Our group is pretty informal and fun, although probably not as funny as we like to think we are. Presently our makeup is mostly married couples and families, but we’ll eagerly welcome any singles who’d like to join us. We begin by sharing a meal (with all of us bringing food to pitch in), and then we settle in for a casual but intentional conversation about what we’re learning and applying from the text that we’ve been covering in our sermon exposition each week. We also have our older kids spending time with the younger kids so that the adults can have (mostly) undistracted discussion.
