Why lead a group?

There's literally nothing like it!

That special moment when you realize you have something in common with someone in your group. 

Or... that moment of hilarious, spontaneous laughter from the group when someone says something that's a lil "TMI". 


Or... that lightbulb moment and audible response, from someone in the group, that you can tell struck a chord and just may change their life forever. 


Or... that moment when asking for prayer needs and the most closed-off person breaks down in tears and reveals the need they've been holding onto and the group rallies behind them. 


Or... that moment, after years have passed and you remember the first time your best friend... was someone you met in your small group.

how to be a group leader

Don't be intimidated by the word leader. Leadership is simply Influence and it's very easy to be amazing at it.


How? Glad you asked.


CARE about people.


Like really care. Doesn't matter whether you're an introvert or extrovert. Everybody can care, because everybody wants someone else to care about them.

Don't be selfish; don't try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. 


Don't look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too.

Philippians 2:3-4

c.a.r.e.

When we say CARE at Christian World, this is what we mean:

"Caring about others, running the risk of feeling, and leaving an impact on people, brings happiness."

 - Harold Kushner


Here's some easy ways to show your Group that you CARE about them:

  • INVITE them! Make room for them.
  • Ask them a question about themselves.
  • PRAY for them.
  • Check up on them.
  • Draw out potential in them that they can't see in themselves.
  • Give them a next YES / STEP!!!
