Want to become a Group Leader in your group?
Group Leaders don’t fulfill a specific function in a group - a group can function just fine with multiple leaders or without any leaders. Group Leaders are people who have decided to take special responsibility for the spiritual health and trajectory or the group as a whole and the people in it. They are supported, equipped, empowered, and coached by the Groups Team Staff.
Group Leaders are humble, teachable, curious and intentional.
And on that foundation, they also…
prioritize their own spiritual growth
protect the safety of the group environment
encourage engagement with God, the group, and the Church
continually gauge the health of the group
stay connected with their Group Coach.
Becoming a Group Leader is a 4-part process: (1) application, (2) facilitator training, (3) interview, and (4) leader training.
