Ministry Contact – Dr. Jeremy Roberts

The Adult Ministry exists to draw us together as faithful followers of Christ in our lives, our homes, our jobs, our community, and our church. We strive to be continually growing in our relationship with Christ through prayer, studying His word, fellowship and service.

Our Discipleship Pathway

Join one or more of our Adult Groups for fellowship and learning. If you're new to Immanuel Baptist Church, you can make new to friends. If you aren't new, this is a great chance to strengthen relationships and get to know people you may not know very well. Either way, we'll grow together as we get to know Christ better.
At IBC we provide those who attend with a clear pathway that they can follow in order to intentionally grow in their relationship with Christ.
We want you to be involved in 4 specific areas of our church:
We want you to come to know God more in a weekly worship service as Pastor Shawn teaches the Bible.
We want you to find community in a weekly Life Group as you navigate life with others, guided by God’s Word.
We want God’s Word to take root in you and spread to others as you make disciples in a yearly Covenant Group of 3-4 couples or 6-8 individuals.
We want you to join God’s work to change the world through missions, evangelism, and volunteering.
Where are you on The Discipleship Pathway? It’s time to take your next step!

Life Groups

Adult Life Groups offer friendships, support, Biblical wisdom, ministry, and love. You will be challenged and encouraged to take the lessons learned here and apply them in your life throughout the week. Our desire is for every adult to find his/her place in a Sunday morning Life Group class at 9:45 a.m.! Our Sunday morning Life Groups are categorized according to your life stages or ages. Check out our classes by clicking on the tabs below.

We have two goals for our life groups:

  1. Connect people to Jesus through the Study of God’s Word.
  2. Connect people to each other through meaningful relationships.

Covenant Groups

We are Growing True Disciples of Christ! Through Covenant Groups, believers are engaged in relationships of accountability, transparency, and trust. They are rooted in God’s Word, devoted to community, and living with purpose. Also, believers are committed to imitating Christ by creating more disciples.
A Covenant Group is a small Group of adults who meet weekly in homes across Marshall, TX. They have a meal together, study the Bible together, pray for each other, and stay connected throughout the week. This is a discipleship process groups go through together which lasts 12-18 months.
“Before we started our group I thought this was just going to be something else on our busy schedule. I have now come to the point where I can’t imagine not having this group in my life. This is vital to my life."
