facilitate a Group

you don't have to have all the answers

We believe that life change happens best within the context of community, when people are experiencing authentic relationships with like-minded people, seeking the same goal. Community Groups provide people with the opportunity to connect with others, grow in their relationship with Jesus and experience the love, support, and intentionality of community. Our Community Group Facilitator are responsible for providing their groups with vision and support while extending hospitality to all group members. They primarily serve as shepherds by guiding group discussion and overseeing the group, while taking the time to personally connect with each member.

You were not designed to walk through life alone. Whether you are going through ups or downs, life is always better when you are connected. You can help with that connection by facilitating a Community Group! You don't have to be a Bible scholar, seminary graduate or theologian to facilitate a group.

It’s easy to think you’re not qualified to facilitate. But we believe God has placed people in your life that only you have the ability to encourage. Step into facilitating today and challenge what you think you’re capable of.

ROLE OF A COMMUNITY GROUP facilitator

Community Group Facilitators are responsible for providing their groups with vision, direction, and support while consistently providing an environment that is inviting and safe to encourage openness and transparency within the group. Facilitators are successful when they are personally growing in their relationship with God, attending church gatherings regularly, and actively inviting others and are facilitating their groups in such a way as to encourage the group members’ growth in these same areas. Community Group Facilitators are supported by a Momentum Church Community Groups leadership team member with initial training and continuous coaching throughout their role as a Facilitator.
