Become a Leader
Forest Hill Groups are designed to move people closer to Christ as they Study Scripture, Care for one another, Serve others, Share the gospel, and Pray together often. Groups can be life changing. For this reason, Group leaders are some of most important people in our church because they are committed to cultivating discipleship environments that help others grow.
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. There are three parts that should take 60 - 90 minutes total.
Read through the Orientation Guide and watch the applicable videos. Each video helps to explain one of the 5 core commitments of a Group.
Review the Volunteer Commitment.
Complete the Leader application. This helps us to get to know you and the kind of group you’d like to lead.
Once you have completed all 3 of these parts, your application will be reviewed and a staff member will set up a time to meet with you to talk about next steps.
Take a few minutes to settle your mind and pray that God would direct you as you begin. We are grateful that God has brought you to this point. We pray that He will lead you onward.
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 Life Group leaders that builds on this initial information. If you do have questions now, please don’t hesitate to ask.
