Introduction to the Family

Every few months, newcomers are invited to Introduction to the Family (ITF) upstairs after the 11:00 AM service for lunch to meet the pastors and elders of Mitchell Berean.  We’ll share a brief history of our church, what we believe, and what goes on throughout the week.  Each staff member will tell what they oversee and communicate their vision.
ITF occurs about every 3 months and is announced during services, published in the bulletin and the calendar.

Core Classes

Offered 3 times a year, Core Classes last 8 weeks and cover the basics of the Bible, spiritual gifts and serving in Mitchell Berean.
Dates, times and registration for classes available in the Realm App.

Bible Basics

Leader: Gene Broeder
This 8-week class answers common questions about the Bible:
I don’t get it, what’s the plot?
Why is it so hard to understand?
How do we know it’s true?
Why can’t I just have my own ideas about God?
This class is a great introduction if you know only very little about the Bible and a great refresher if you know a lot!


Leader: Pastor Jon Simpson
This class will help you explore your own special combination of Spiritual Gifts, Heart (passions), Abilities, Personality, and Experiences in order to help you to discover your SHAPE and find a place to serve where you can not only be a blessing to others but experience God’s blessings for you.


Leader: James Buck
A key value of MBC is having “Partners in Ministry”. We are an Elder led, Life Group based church. In Ephesians 4:12-13, we learn that the role of the Elder’s of the church is to “prepare God’s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature…” When you become a Partner in Ministry at MBC, you are saying you are committed to serving and sharing in this local body of believer’s.

 Life Group Launch

Upon completion of all Core Classes, it is time to join a Life Group, fellow believers who want to walk through life together.
