Become a LifeGroup Leader

Thank you for your interest in leading a LifeGroup at newhope! We believe that people take their greatest faith strides when they are connected with a community of people who are pursuing Christ together.

In 1 Corinthians 3:6 Paul teaches that some plant the seeds, other water them, but God makes them grow. LifeGroup leaders have the opportunity to create an environment where seeds of faith are planted and watered in the lives of those they lead while trusting God with the growth.

LifeGroups exist to provide a place where people can make friends, grow in their faith and impact their community. As a LifeGroup leader, it’s your role to facilitate a space where those three things can happen.

Because our LifeGroup leaders play such a significant role in the spiritual growth of our people, we take great care when enlisting them. Please read through the information below to better understand the qualifications and expectations of a LifeGroup leader. If, after prayerful consideration, you are interested in being a LifeGroup leader, you can begin your LifeGroup Leader application below.
