Small Groups Leadership

You’ve come to that stage in your life where God is leading you to do something more. He is nudging you to step out in obedience and trust Him with another step in your Christ Centered Journey. The question is will you? Do you have time, enough space at your house to host, enough Bible knowledge to rival a theology grad, and crazy mad management skills. Excuse me? Really? So, let’s be honest. Small group leadership is doing what you are doing right now within your small group or social circle. The only difference is that you now will be doing the same thing you have always been doing with some intentionality. In terms of the leadership aspect of small group ministry, you begin to become more concerned about the spiritual growth of those around you rather than simply be self centered. 

Your goal as a small group leader is to shepherd your group along the Christ Centered Journey. It is to do life with them and be there when they need someone. It doesn’t mean that you are a Bible scholar or have all the answers. None of us do. But there is a point in a Christ follower’s life where we begin to group’s journey.

Steps to becoming a small group leader:

  1. Pray for guidance through the process and for couples/singles for your group
  2. Fill out a Small Group Leader Application
  3. Familiarize yourself with the Christ Centered Journey
  4. Take the Discipleship Health Survey
  5. Participate in Leadership Camp
 


Small Group Leadership Camp

The camp is a 6-week workshop covering all facets to leading your own small group as well as growing as a disciple.  If you are interested in leading a small group, then this no-pressure informational meeting about leading a LifePoint small group is for you.
