To be a family of love that cooperates with God in making fully devoted fruitful followers of Christ.

A life group is a weekly gathering that leads people to begin, connect, grow, engage and disciple together.
Who are life group leaders?
Life group leaders are shepherds who accept responsibility for leading themselves and others to become fully devoted fruitful followers of Christ.
1. Train Myself for Godliness
Set a daily time to meet with the Lord. “Train yourself to be godly…Be diligent in these matters; give yourself wholly to them, so that everyone may see your progress. Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.” (1 Timothy 4:7-16)
2. Shepherd My People
This is done before and after your weekly meeting. “Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, serving as overseers-not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not greedy for money, but eager to serve.” (1 Peter 5:2-3)
3. Meet With My Group
This is done during your weekly meeting. “You know that I have not hesitated to preach anything that would be helpful to you but have taught you publicly and from house to house.” (Acts 20:20)
4. Mobilize Them to Maturity
This is done throughout the semester. “...prepare God’s people for works of service so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.” (Ephesians 4:12-13)
