Groups exist to foster spiritual growth and create community. They play a fundamental role in the health and overall growth of our church.
We realize that serving as a Group Leader can be both rewarding and challenging. There is a lot of preparation, planning, time and energy that goes into any leadership role, but leading a small group of Christians as they grow and develop spiritually is no small task. The subjects tend to be deep and the discussion thought-provoking. Hurts, fears, hang-ups and frustrations are often shared and a lot of time is spent in prayer (both public and private) and quiet contemplation. As a Group Leader, you will find yourself both energized and exhausted, humbled and awed, challenged and encouraged.
But the reward of fellowship and life-long friendship, of seeing how God uses each member of your group to uplift and support one another, is a miracle unto itself. It is an experience that will change you.
It is for this reason that we encourage each of our members and friends to connect with a Group, but without people like you to lead a Group, none of this would be possible. Our goal is to equip you with some of the resources you need to lead — study materials, information on discipleship and/or leadership training, help with Realm and information about RightNow Media.
As more resources become available, we will add that information here. If you have any questions, please contact Patti Remaklus or Austin Seevers.
