The Greater Grove
The Grove Bible Chapel has a vision to plant churches and partner with like- minded churches to plant Gospel-rich communities of faith along the I-4 corridor and to have a Gospel-impact throughout Central Florida and beyond. Keeping with this desire for planting churches and for connection and relationship in the gospel, The Greater Grove was created.
In the summer of 2019, we began to see this vision become a reality. The Lord provided an opportunity for us to partner with Harvest Bible Chapel Tampa Bay in helping them re-brand, re-plant, and re-launch for the pursuit of gospel progress as The Grove Bible Chapel Tampa. The Grove in Tampa is our first of what we pray will be many churches to join The Grove Bible Chapel family and ultimately The Greater Grove.
The Greater Grove is a network of churches, centered on the Word of God, that exists to:
- Equip (tools/resources)
- Enhance (shared experiences)
- Encourage (strengthening/care/support/confidence)
… churches to fulfill the Great Commission.
Affiliation in the Greater Grove
Today there are 2 ways to affiliate with The Greater Grove.
The first way to affiliate with The Greater Grove is through church planting or by becoming a re-plant.
The Grove Bible Chapel is singularly focused on planting churches throughout Central Florida and beyond. We are deeply persuaded that Jesus is building His church and we are excited to partner with Him in this supernatural work. We are committed to going where He opens doors for us. As we seek Him earnestly in prayer, we have faith to believe He will reveal to us where He is working and the best way to join Him in His work.
The second way to affiliate with The Greater Grove is through connection and relationship in the gospel.
Each year The Grove Bible Chapel or its church plants will host a series of events that your churches leadership team would be invited to attend. These events include our EQUIP conference, Men’s and Women’s Conference, Student Retreats, and many other offerings. The purpose of these events is to encourage your local body and to inspire greater gospel progress in your local context.
