Leadership Orientation



Orientation is a dining experience in which you will share a meal with other leaders and discuss the principles of Groups and what success looks like.  You will learn methods and practices that will help you lead well and care for people in your Group. Orientation is also supported by timely videos, books, and websites that will continually help you learn and develop as a leader. In Orientation, you can expect to receive and learn more about some of the following elements from the Groups ministry:

    • Training resources (books, videos)
    • A friend who is experienced in the Group Ministry team to answer questions
    • Support calls, texts and emails about Groups ministry and your own soul care
    • Curriculum suggestions
    • Community building ideas

Orientation Preparation

  • Pray for who you would like to invite to your group. We suggest you have four couples or six singles whom you plan to invite before you attend your first orientation session.
  •  Read over the Baptist Faith and Message (1963/1998)
    Our church’s statement of faith is the Baptist Faith and Message, 1963 edition (with 1998 Family Amendment). As a Group leader you will be expected to guide your Group within the bounds of this confession. Please click here to read a PDF of this document.
