Small Group Leaders

Thank you for your interest in being a Small Group Leader!

Small Groups are an integral part of what we do as a church. We believe that sustained life change occurs as we are growing in a relationship with Christ, and that this happens best when we are prioritizing intentional relationships with others who are seeking this same goal. Small Groups provide people with the opportunity to connect with others, grow in their relationship with Christ, and experience community. Our Small Group leaders create environments where people have the opportunity to pursue healthy relationships and spiritual growth.
