Step Into A Bigger Story

Group leaders create a place for people to talk about life and grow their faith.

You don’t have to be perfect to lead a group. And you don’t need to be a Bible scholar to be used by God to lead others. Group leaders create a place where people can be real and grow. They get front-row seats as others discover how faith and life work together, and they discover how their faith works with their life along the way.
