Our discipleship ministries encourage and enable ongoing life transformation through Christ-centered fellowship and the study of God’s Word.

At the core of our discipleship efforts are small groups that meet regularly for Bible study, fellowship, prayer, and volunteer work. With a variety of options to choose from, we have a group for everyone who is ready to grow in his or her faith.

Our Minister of Discipleship, David Holcomb, publishes daily content to the Discipleship Ministries Facebook Page to help you grow in your faith.


Small Groups

A Small Group offers a safe place where 8-14 adults can know God better and love Him more through regular fellowship, Bible study, service, and prayer.

It is an environment where individuals are known, cared for, and encouraged in their relationship with God. Groups are ultimately about spiritual growth. We believe that a Christ-centered small group environment is a great place for individuals to build relationships with one another and grow in their faith together.


Young Adults

The Young Adult Ministry (YAM) is a ministry designed for those in their senior year of high school to their mid-twenties. For more information you can email Maddie Hazelbaker or Sam Walter.

MOMs ROCC (Mothers of Many Seasons)

MOMs ROCC is a group of women with children and grandchildren of all ages (from preschool to college and beyond). We meet most Thursdays during the school year from 9:30-11:30 am in the Coffee Bar to have brunch and hear speakers on a variety of topics from marriage and parenting to faith and prayer. We would love to welcome you to our community of moms! Childcare is provided.

WOW (Women of the Word)

WOW provides structured Bible studies for women to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ. Studies are held during the school year on Tuesday mornings, from 9:30 to 11:30 am and on Tuesday evenings from 7 to 9 pm. Childcare is available during the morning study. A typical Tuesday study consists of a large group time of teaching and worship followed by a smaller, interactive discussion at tables. Childcare is provided for morning session.

Holiday Cookie Exchange

On Saturday, December 1, 10am-noon, in the Coffee Bar bring three dozen of your favorite Christmas treats and join the Women's Connection team for holiday festivities! Some of the goodies will be used to prepare Holiday Blessing baskets, which will be delivered afterward.


BUILD (Biblical Understanding, Intercessory Prayer, Leadership Development) is an annual accountability and growth study designed to develop spiritual leaders. Groups meet weekly for 60-90 minutes at a place and time most convenient to the members to dig through Scripture, pray with others, and encourage Scripture memorization and group accountability.

Through four years of summer BUILD studies, we have learned that BUILD groups work best when they form organically—men from your regular small group, neighbors, friends, co-workers. More formal placement processes are too cumbersome and rarely result in identifying group members with similar preferences, primarily due to the wide spectrum of meeting locations and times, few of which involve the church facility.

The prayer of our hearts is that our church—and our community—would experience a dynamic time of renewal through an increase in prayer and discipleship. As River Oaks has sought the Lord’s will in this prayer, a recurring vision has been that of the Lord pouring out His Spirit on the men of our church—that they would grow in their relationship with God and encourage one another to be the servant-leaders in their families, workplaces, and neighborhoods.

As you study and pray together and memorize God’s Word, may the Holy Spirit help you have "strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God” (Ephesians 3:18-19).
