Lead A Group

Ready to Lead a Group?

As a Connect Group leader, your mission is to connect people to God’s word and help them grow in their faith. Our Connect Group leaders help people who attend our church become active participants, first by pointing each person to Christ for the answers and by modeling what an active, growing Christian looks like; guiding them to a deeper commitment by engaging in our three strategies:

Worship corporately, together weekly

Connect with God’s word and God’s people

Contribute with our time, talents and finances
