Why Lead a Group?
You know as much as anybody that it's important to be connected. That's one reason you're part of Catalyst Church. We also know that defining community is tough because being in community is more than showing up for Bible study. Sometimes we wait for someone else to make the first move when helping provide that community. Leading a Life Group simply means you go first. You don’t have to be a theologian or commit every night of the week to be a leader.
If you love having fun, helping people take a next step, and celebrating life-change, leading a Life Group may be just the thing for you.
Why Lead a Support Group?
For many people, a biblically-centered support group may fill a gap between biblical understanding of their situation and the need for emotional support. A person's relationship with a licensed practitioner may not provide adequate emotional support, and a person's family and friends may not understand the impact of the life-altering event. A support group among people with shared experiences may function as a bridge between clinical and biblically-based emotional needs.
A Support Group Leader can help those individuals navigate the very difficult season in their life. The Leader is someone who shares or has shared the group’s common experience and can offer the perspective needed to empathize and assist the members of the group when others find it difficult to relate. If you are this person, we invite you to fill out the Support Group Leader’s Application and be a blessing to others.
Why Lead a Short-Term Group?
Short-Term groups bring together people who are looking for a biblically-centered educational experience on various topics such as, finances, biblical knowledge (beginner to advanced), and the acclimatization to a new way of life, such as the military lifestyle and everything it has to offer. A Short-Term group is designed to educate and/or enhance a group member’s current understanding of biblical principles with regards to everyday-life applications.
A Short-Term Group Leader can give the group members the knowledge they’re looking for by providing first-hand knowledge and experience about the topic. The Leader is someone who shares or has shared the group’s common experience and can offer the perspective needed to empathize and assist the members of the group when others find it difficult to relate or don’t have the requisite knowledge.
If you are this person, we invite you to fill out the Support and Short Term Group Leader’s Application and be a blessing to others.
