The GROW Institute
at Asbury Church

(God’s Road of Wisdom)

Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.
        Proverbs 3:5-6   


The GROW Institute at Asbury Church was formed to enable all those who want to grow in the knowledge of Lord Jesus Christ through a combination of more complex Studies, Prayer, and a variety of life experiences. While all of these individually are available to everyone, those who avail themselves of The GROW Institute choose to work through all of these in a systematic way over approximately a two-year process in order to more fully apply all of our Lord’s teachings in their daily lives.


At the conclusion of their enrollment in the GROW Institute, students will find some, all, or more than the following:

  • A deeper responsiveness towards God’s Word
  • A better understanding of Christian History and God’s work in the world
  • A greater knowledge of Wesleyan theology and appreciation for the life and work of John Wesley
  • A wider range of ways to meet with the Lord in prayer, as well as a more active prayer life
  •  An obedient answer to Christ’s call of servanthood
  • Experience the true unity of brothers and sisters in Christ working together for the Gospel


Here is what one student has said about her experience:

"I appreciated the opportunity to participate in the GROW Institute at Asbury Church. The variety in the classes kept my interest. I learned a great deal about Methodism, John Wesley, the church and other areas to increase my understanding about why we believe as we do, and it positively impacted my relationship with Jesus.
