Small Groups


Growing together.

Whoever you are, wherever you're from, you are welcome here.

Small Groups

People of all ages join small groups for a variety of reasons. If you’re looking for a group to connect with, a way to grow personally or spiritually, or a place to build deeper, lasting friendships, small groups are the place for you. Small groups offer members a chance to talk about what’s going on in their lives and grow in their faith together. Small groups meet on a weekly or bi-weekly basis, usually in a home, and decide together what topic they want to study. Childcare is available for those who may need it.

How do I join a small group?

There are two ways to join a small group at Greentree.


We offer a series of small group mixers in September, October, and November designed to bring people together to form new small groups. At small group mixers, we offer lunch and provide activities designed to help people connect with one another in a very informal environment.

Jump Right In

If you don’t want to wait for the next set of mixers and want to jump in as soon as possible, contact Brenden Pristach. Brenden is our minister who oversees adult classes and small groups and would love to help you get connected to a small group that works best with your schedule.

If you have any questions about times and locations for the Wednesday evening studies, Sunday classes, or questions about any of the current topics being studied, contact Brenden.

Adult Discipleship Minister

I grew up in Herscher, IL (Smalltown USA at its best) and moved to Rolla with my wife Savanna in May of 2019. I love basketball and football, video games, and certain board games. I also root for the University of Michigan (Go Blue!) in all sports because I’m partial to winning.

My wife and I are incredibly excited to be a part of the community here at Greentree and in Rolla and we were drawn here because of the love we felt from the staff and congregation from the first time we visited. I am passionate about walking alongside others in their faith and working with people as we chase after God together. I look forward to the years of ministry ahead!
