Ready to Lead or Host a Journey Group?
Leading a group is one of the most rewarding ways to serve at Journey Church.
WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO BE A JOURNEY GROUP LEADER?
Leading a Group isn’t about being perfect; it’s about serving others by giving them a place to belong. We give you essential tools to make your group successful through Leadership Training and you can register your group so others can find it easily. We believe people’s lives are changed one semester at a time by taking their “Next Step” toward Christ, and as a Group Leader, you get to play an important role in that process. To serve as a Group Leader, you must first go through the Journey Growth Track.
Our Groups have a Spring/Summer (February-June), and Fall/Winter (September-December) semester. We ask that Group Leaders commit to one full semester and to meet at least once a month.
JOURNEY GROUPS PROVIDE THREE THINGS
A place to CONNECT.
It is easy to feel alone in a crowd. Groups are an open door into the life of our church family. When you are in a Group, you experience the love and strength of biblical community.
A place to PROTECT.
Imagine someone you can call when you’re discouraged, someone to pray with when you are doubting, and someone who can teach you more about what God is like. Imagine a loving community of people who notice when you are away; gently sharpen you when you need it, and who help you share your faith with others. Groups are a place where you are protected and supported.
A place to GROW.
Groups are a place you can be equipped to become more like Jesus and to live a faith-filled life. We believe that every person is created with God-given potential to make a difference in the world. Groups are a place where there are like-minded people who believe in you. This is how leaders are developed. We want to see you grow, flourish, and become all that God has called you to be!
A GROUP LEADER IS

RECRUITING FOR YOUR GROUP
Start with people who are already in your sphere of influence (co-workers, friends, neighbors).
Find people around you who are new to the church, new believers, or have shown interest in getting involved.
Look for people whom you think you can help draw out their potential.
