At Good Shepherd, Small Groups are more than just gatherings; they are hubs of discipleship. Rooted in the belief that spiritual growth is accelerated in the context of relationships, our Small Groups aim to cultivate an environment where individuals can dig deep into God’s Word, challenge and support one another, and grow together as His disciples. By fostering a family atmosphere, Small Groups serve as catalysts for transformation, helping us become more like Christ.
Leading a Small Group at Good Shepherd is a way to make disciples. You don’t have to be perfect or have all the answers, but you must be willing to love others and live a Christ-like life. Your main responsibility with the group is to facilitate an environment where members can explore, grow, and experience God through community. As a leader, you’ll be equipped with tools and training to lead effectively, ensuring that every person has the opportunity to become and walk as Christ’s disciples.
The primary purpose is to foster meaningful relationships, allowing members to share life through community.
You can easily sign up for a Small Group through our website. We list all the Small Groups we have available for the current semester here.
