Thank you for your willingness to serve God by opening your homes and hearts to meet God’s purposes. Stepping out in faith to lead a small group can be challenging or even intimidating. I want to encourage you that God is with you and wanting to use your life to impact others. This is a very exciting time in our church as we see God working in the hearts of many, challenging them to grow spiritually. You play a very important role in creating environments spiritual transformation to happen. Thank you for your commitment and obedience.

As you read through this material, many of your questions will be answered while it may generate new ones. We have a coaching team want to respond to your questions as they arise. The last thing that we want to do is load you down with extra responsibilities, so use the ideas that work for you and don’t hesitate to ask for help.

Thanks again for taking a step of faith! May God make this journey one of the most exciting and enriching times of your life.
