Time Commitment
Most growth groups of 6 to 12 people meet two to four times per month in people’s homes. Leaders coordinate gatherings, group serving times, studies and curriculum by using Living Word’s wide variety of materials. On average, groups meet fall through spring and take a break during the summer.

Experience Required
We support and equip all growth group leaders through one-on-one mentoring and training. Attendance at Group Dynamix Training is required so that leaders will be equipped with helpful knowledge about leading discussion, resolving conflict, and growing a healthy community. Please contact us to begin the conversation if you are unsure if you are ready to lead a group.
