Groups Facilitator Team

Connecting relationally to grow spiritually

We are looking for people who are willing to facilitate a Group. As a church, we would like to offer more small Groups and so we need more trained facilitators to lead them. And yes, we will train you! 



First, what are Groups? 

  • We believe two things - 1. Life is better connected and 2. Circles are better than rows. Meaning…rows are great for listening to a sermon (like on a Sunday morning), but in circles, we gather together to share and process our lives and what we are learning which is how we best grow in our relationship with Jesus. 
  • In Groups, people study God’s word, or discuss Sunday's sermon, or study a particular topic, and discuss the issues and challenges of life. It’s also where people pray together, care for one another, and are missed if they don’t show up.
  • This size of a Group (depending on the kind of group) is generally 6-12 individuals or 3-6 couples.


Who are we looking for in a Groups facilitator?

  • Have a personal, growing relationship with Jesus Christ (preferably for two or more years).
  • Recognize the Bible as the authority for their lives. 
  • Have Community Group experience (preferably) 
  • Have the time, emotional health, and moral discernment to lead a group. 
  • NOT AN EXPERT, but someone willing to create a small group environment where people can pursue authentic community and spiritual growth.
