This plan will show you how to get rid of debt, manage your money, spend and save wisely, and much more!

Life Group Leader Basic Training

Small Group Leaders!

• ALREADY A LEADER? If you’re already a small group leader, this is a good refresher course.

• NEW LEADER? If you’re already planning or hoping to start a new group, you’ll definitely want to attend.

• JUST WANT TO KNOW MORE? If you think you might be interested in small group leadership, why not attend the training and decide if you’d like to go further? A teaching gift is not required, simply a willingness to get Christians together to help each other grow in Christ. Attendance does not mean you are committing.

Interested in starting a Life Group?  Prefer to meet in person?  Our next four-week Life Group Leader Basic Training will be offered for four Sundays. To register or for more information click here.

Prefer to train online?  Please proceed to video's below.
