Join the Small Groups Team

We love our Small Group team, and we celebrate when someone new meets the criteria to join in a leadership capacity!  These people facilitate, instead of teaching.  They grow, instead of lecture.  In short, they are a team who actively develop and disciple our congregation into growth that helps each individual become a more fully devoted follower of Jesus Christ!  They are going to help us reach our goal of connecting 1,000 adults into small groups.
