People change people. Our groups engage people in important conversation, spiritual practices, and service to the city and the world that address equality, housing insecurity, and economic challenge.

Joe Groups

Joe Groups

Joe Groups are for “the average Joe”. They are small groups of people (men, women, and mixed) who grow together and figure out how to love God and others more deeply. Joe groups include meditation, Scripture, discussion, and are held throughout the week both on and off The Portico’s campus.
