We're glad you're interested in becoming a Group Facilitator!
Life Groups are an integral part of what we do as a church. We believe that sustained life change occurs as we are growing in a relationship with Christ. We believe this happens best when we are prioritizing intentional relationships with others who are seeking this same goal. Our Groups provide the opportunity to connect with others, grow together and experience community.
Paul taught the Corinthians that some plant the seeds, others water them, but God makes them grow (1 Corinthians 3:6). Group facilitators have the privilege of creating environments in which seeds of faith are planted and watered in the lives of those they lead, while trusting God with the increase. Our facilitators play a pivotal role in helping us achieve our mission to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ!
Since our Group facilitators play such an important role, we take great care when enlisting them. Please read through the information below to better understand the role, qualifications, and expectations of a facilitator. If, after consideration, you are interested in pursuing a leadership role, please follow the instructions below to complete the Group Facilitator Application. Once we receive your application, we will contact you for an interview. Should you have questions regarding any of the following information, please email us at
Role of a Group Facilitator
Group facilitators are responsible for providing their groups with vision, direction, and support. Leaders are successful when they are personally growing in their intimacy with God, experiencing community with other believers, growing influence with people outside the church, and are leading their groups in such a way as to encourage the group members' growth in these three relationships as well. All facilitators are supported by Journey Groups team of staff, pastors, and coaches.
- Have a personal, growing relationship with Jesus Christ
- Recognize the Bible as the authority for their lives
- Have group experience (preferably) – if not, we do offer training
- Have the time, emotional capacity, and moral discernment to lead a group
- Member of Journey of Faith (or willing to become one)
- Lead the group by facilitating the group meeting
- Commit to engage in leadership development opportunities provided by the church
- Identify and develop a qualified apprentice and embrace apprentice leader development as a measure of success
- For married life group leaders, both husband and wife actively participate in all group leadership activities
