Women's Group Leader

Women's Groups

"I don't think anyone ever feels completely confident in their personal leadership abilities or 100% equipped to be a group leader. I certainly didn't when I started out…and I still don't. But after leading women's groups for almost five years, I've come to realize that no one wants a perfect leader. They want someone who is real and human just like them and who is meeting Jesus where they are, just like them."

Men's group leader

Men's Groups

"I started leading because I had such a great experience with my first small group. I felt compelled to help create a similar experience for others. If you’re on the fence about leading, it’s probably time to take a step to lead. The church has great support systems for leaders. Don’t get lost in thinking you’re not capable. God will handle that."

Family

Marrieds' Groups

"We lead our group because we believe in the mission to help others grow in their relationship with Jesus. Our job as group leaders is to love people, and that requires no special skill set other than trusting God to love through us. We are messy people who want to walk alongside other messy people as we take steps daily toward Jesus."
