About The Growth Institute

The Growth Institute is an online teaching platform designed to equip you with a life you would love to choose.

The Growth Institute was started by Randy Creamer who leads the counseling team at SouthBrook Christian Church in Miamisburg, Ohio.  Randy has spent years sitting with people in their hurt, pain, and struggles and developing content to guide people into choosing a life they would love to live.

The Growth Institute is an online teaching platform that will give just enough relevant information to challenge your thinking. We believe that information is only as good as it’s practical output. Therefore, each course will offer practical exercises and tools to begin using immediately as a way to incorporate the information just given.

The Growth Institute is an online community that will allow you to connect with, ask questions, and engage with the people who are taking the courses as well.  Our goal is to not only create a place for information, but to create a place where you can put knowledge to practice and be supported by the people around you in the process.
