Spiritual Growth Labs

What are Labs?

Looking for a jump start in your spiritual journey?

Whether you're exploring faith for the first time, want to dive deeper into how to read the Bible, or want great fitness or financial guidance, we have a lab for you!

Our labs are environments designed for questions and dialogue, led by pastors and experienced practitioners.

WHEN are Labs?

Spiritual Growth Labs meet from 6-8 weeks and are offered in the Winter and Summer.  Our Winter Labs launch in January and our Summer Labs Launch in July. 

We offer Labs in multiple days and times so you can find something that fits your schedule. 

something for Everyone

We know everyone is at a different place in their spiritual journey.  DCC includes people everywhere on the continuum between skeptical and convinced, between those just starting out and those that have been following the Jesus Way for a while.  We offer labs that will spark something new or challenge established paradigms.  We hope you will join the conversation and discover something beautiful.

Winter 2018 Labs Offered

All Labs start the week of January 21.  Location, Days ,and Times are listed below. 

SPiritual Growth Labs


The Jesus Lab

Sunday 4-6pm (Justin Ulrich) // Monday 7-9pm (Josh Tarp)

"Humanitarian? Revolutionary? Religious Icon? Jesus is a fascinating historical figure! In this lab, we dive into the life and times of Jesus and explore why we believe He's worth following today."


Advanced Bible Lab

Wednesday 7-9pm (Justin Ulrich)

"The Bible is a collection of ancient writings compiled over the course of about 1500 years by roughly 40 different authors. Advanced Bible Study is a nerdy and dirty lab with an in-depth approach to studying scripture. This lab is for those ready to invest in the skills to study the Bible on their own and have it come alive."

Leadership Labs:


Owner’s Lab

Monday 7-9pm (Brad Russell) 

"The Owner's Lab is designed for those who are ready to take the leap and make an all-in commitment to DCC. It's not for everyone - Owner's Lab is designed to challenge DCC leaders to be builders of our church's future."


Helping without Hurting

Wednesday 7-8:30 PM (Justin Stewart-Fritz and Bonnie Long) 

"Good intentions are not enough, and many problems cannot be solved with donations alone. This lab will focus on building a better framework for thinking about poverty, mission, and social justice. If you are interested in making a lasting impact on our world and truly helping others, this lab might be for you. This is especially recommended if you are interested in joining DCC's efforts in Nicaragua."

Practical Labs:


Financial Peace

Tuesday 7-9 PM (Steve Malinchock)

"We all need a plan for our money. Financial Peace presents practical steps to get from where you are to where you've dreamed you could be. This lab will show you how to get rid of debt, manage your money, spend, save, and invest wisely, and much more. Join the number of DCCers that have discovered the power and freedom of Financial Peace's philosophy."


Healthy Living

Thursday 7-8:30pm (Bill Mines)

"Healthy Living promotes, encourages, and instructs you toward healthy choices in your daily lifestyle. From fitness to diet, you will be presented with simple and effective ways to live healthier."
