What is Impact Institute?

The following training courses and events are offered throughout the year at Sugar Grove Church to help equip you in our mission to multiply disciples of Jesus for God’s glory.

Engage the Mind.

Transform the Heart.

Move Toward Obedience.


Begins Sept. 15

Demystifying Discipleship

Begins Sept. 15
Sundays, 11am
Pastor Rich | Rm 213

We believe God placed each of us in our homes, jobs, schools, etc. to impact the people we encounter throughout our daily lives. We want to help you understand what it means to be a disciple-maker, find the courage to engage in one-on-one discipleship, and show you how the Gospel makes it all possible. You won’t be an expert by the time we’re done, but you will be better equipped to point people toward Jesus Christ.

The Gentle Art of Discipling Women

Begins Sept. 8
Sundays, 9:30am
Andi Schrock | Rm 207
Cost $13 (collected at study)

Discipleship is the responsibility of every believer, yet many of us avoid doing it because we don’t know where to start. The Gentle Art of Discipling Women provides a framework for discipleship from the mentoring voice of a seasoned discipler. Dana Yeakley walks with you through the foundational principles of who you are in Christ and how you are uniquely equipped to pass along what He has taught you. This course will help each woman discover her unique gifting in discipleship through her relationship with God, her personality, and her story.

Space is limited, so only the first 10 registered will be accepted.

Church History

Sept. 15–Dec. 1
Sundays, 9:45am
Phil Miller | Rm. 211

Discover what has occurred in the two-thousand years between Jesus’ ministry and today, exploring key events, beliefs, and personalities that shaped the church through the centuries. Through video, readings, charts, and conversations, we’ll explore church history with an emphasis on exploring various branches of the church and how events which shaped the past still affect us today.

Christianity Explored

Sept. 18–Nov. 20
Wednesdays, 6:30pm
Ryan Nord | Rm. 210

Christianity is all about one life—the life of Jesus—and it can be summed up in the answers to three questions:

  1. Who is Jesus?
  2. Why did Jesus come?
  3. What does that mean for us?

We will explore the Gospel of Mark to find answers to these questions and more.

Journey Through the New Testament

Coming 2020
Wednesdays, 6:30–8pm
Pastor Tony | Chapel

In this journey, we are going to give you a better understanding of the New Testament. We want you to have the confidence to read it for yourself and better understand what the Bible has to say. In addition, this course will highlight how Jesus fits into God’s redemptive plan for His people.
