We’re excited that you’re interested in leading a Life Group! At Liquid, we believe God works through relationships to bring about spiritual growth — and by leading a group, you’ll play an important role in that process! Below, you’ll find answers to some common questions people have about leading a group and you can sign up for one of our upcoming informational sessions about leading a group.
Thanks again for your interest and we look forward to hearing from you!
A leader's number one job is to welcome people into the group and make them feel comfortable! We don’t ask Life Group Leaders to be “teachers” -- instead, we provide you and your group with study guides and simply ask you to use the guides to dig deeper into Liquid’s Sunday messages together.
2. What are the requirements for becoming a LEADER?Expand...
There are only a few requirements. That you are in a growing relationship with Jesus Christ, that you commit to attending a training event for "new" leaders and you meet/interview with a Liquid staff member who will help you determine your next steps.
We ask that you to commit to leading one "semester" (usually about 8-12 weeks). At the end of this semester, you and your group members will decide whether you would like to continue on together as a group – your Coach will help you navigate that conversation, and Liquid will provide tools, study materials, and ongoing support and training for groups that continue on.
There are groups meet weekly as well as bi-weekly/every other week.
6. What kind of support will I have as a LEADER?Expand...
New leaders will participate in a Life Group New Leader Training event before your Life Group begins. At the training, we’ll train, equip, and prepare you for your group launch. You will also be matched up with a mentor/coach, whom you will meet with regularly for support and encouragement along the way.
Generally, groups meet wherever the leader lives. If you don’t have space to lead a group where you live, we will do our best to work out a solution by pairing you with someone else who can, or you can plan to hold your group at a coffee shop, Panera, or other appropriate public place.
There are many ways for people to join a group. The first way is that they are invited by the leader or group members — we believe groups work best when they build on natural relationships that already exist, so if there are people you know (even if they don’t go to Liquid) you can invite them to be in your group. The second way people join groups is by selecting one that fits their location and stage of life through our sign-up page on LiquidChurch.com. Liquid will also host Connection Events throughout the year to provide a opportunity for people to meet leaders prior to attending a group meeting.
10. Will new people be able to join at any time?Expand...
During transition periods (between studies or during Christmas/Summer breaks) we encourage groups with open spaces to reach out together to add new members — groups can invite people personally or open the group up for new sign-ups on the website.
