Group Leaders create ENVIRONMENTs for people to cultivate relationships with one another and CHrist
We're glad you're interested in becoming a Group leader!
Groups are an integral part of what we do as a church. We believe that sustained life change occurs when we put God on display wherever we live, work, or go. We believe this happens best when we are prioritizing intentional relationships with others who are seeking this same goal. Groups provide people with the opportunity to connect with others, grow in their relationship with Christ, and experience community. Our Group leaders create environments for people to cultivate relationships with one another and Christ.
Paul taught the Corinthians that some plant the seeds, others water them, but God makes them grow (1 Corinthians 3:6). Group leaders have the privilege of creating environments in which seeds of faith are planted and watered in the lives of those they lead, while trusting God with the growth. Our leaders play a pivotal role in helping us achieve our mission to help people be God on display wherever they live, work, or go.
Since our Group leaders play such an important role, we take great care when enlisting them. Please read through the information below to better understand the role of a leader, qualifications, and expectations.
