Become a Connections Team Leader

Leaders don’t have to be experts or know what to do in every situation. In fact, the best leaders are often aware of their weaknesses and empower others within the group while trusting God to work it all together for good. 

We are excited that you are interested in leading and have designed this process to help you decide if leading is a good next step for you.

STEP 2

Once your application is received a Forest Hill Church Staff member from your campus will contact you to set-up a time to meet.  This will give you a chance to learn more about Forest Hill Leadership and our mission and vision and for us to learn more about your story, your gifts and skills and the ways you see God at work in your life.

STEP 3

Becoming a Forest Hill Leader is about more than just Connections; we want to equip you to lead anywhere God has put you-- from home to work to places throughout your community where you may be serving as Christ-centered Leader. 

 

That's why new leaders meet with a staff person or experienced Forest Hill leader 3 to 4 times to shadow them and grow in vital leadership skills such as:

  • Empowering Others

  • Problem Solving
  • Building a Healthy Team Dynamic
  • Facilitating a Huddle/Team Meeting​​

STEP 4

During your first three months as a leader, a coach or staff member will check in with you every 30 days just to see how you're doing.

You'll also participate in short weekly longer huddles and occasional leader gatherings to help you continue to grow as a leader and follower of Christ.

NOTE: This process is designed to give you confidence before you lead, not to answer every question you might have. We provide ongoing development and support for leaders that builds on this initial information. If you do have questions now, please don’t hesitate to ask.
