Become a Bridge Group Leader

Forest Hill Bridge Groups are designed to help people grow in dynamic life in Christ as they Experience the Gospel, Engage in Community and Equip one another as Bridge Builders. Groups can be life changing. For this reason, Bridge Group leaders are some of most important people in our church because they are committed to that help others grow in their relationships with Jesus and one another.

 

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.
