Discipleship Toolbox

At Willow Creek, our mission is to turn irreligious people into fully devoted followers of Christ. Becoming a full devoted follower doesn't happen in a moment. It happens over years of faithful study with other followers.

Willow's Discipleship Toolbox provides a series of next steps for individuals looking to grow in their faith.

Getting Started

At Willow Creek, we are committed to coming alongside anyone who wants to move forward in their relationship with God—and finding a local church you can call 'home' is a significant part of that journey. If you're interested in getting connected at Willow or getting involved in the life of this church, Getting Started is your first step. Learn about Willow's ministries, its history, beliefs, and values, and how to get involved. Children are welcomed to attend with their parents.

Your Next, Best Step

Willow has groups, classes, and workshops designed to meet the different ways that people learn and grow in their faith. Check out the offerings below and pick the option that is your next, best step.


Finding community at Willow is as easy as joining a Section Community. These groups of people connect with each other weekly by sitting in the same section of the Main Auditorium during a weekend worship service. Learn more >>

Midweek Gathering

Every Wednesday night the Willow community gathers at 7 p.m. in the Lakeside Auditorium for a church-wide worship gathering. After worship, Willow's midweek teaching team dives deep into Scripture. Learn more >>

Midweek Classes

Also on Wednesday nights and following worship, Willow offers classes and workshops that will help you grow in your relationship with God, yourself, and others. Learn more >>

The Practice

The Practice is an experimental gathering where we immerse ourselves in God's dream for humanity, practice the historic disciplines that align us with His dream, and carry each other along the way. We are learning to live out Jesus' teachings in the world.
