So you’re interested in becoming a Small Group Leader? Awesome! Here at Bethesda Church, we believe that Small Groups are the place where relationships, community, spiritual growth, and so much more happen! Small Groups give us a unique opportunity because we move from rows to circles, where relationships are really built. As a Small Group Leader, you will have the opportunity to disciple, connect, grow, and build long lasting relationships with people to do life with! As a leader you will also be paired with a coach. All the great MVPs have great coaches, right? You won’t be doing this alone. A coach is there to support you, pray for you, and disciple you. So what is your next step?

    (This involves your acceptance into leadership. Facilitators are held to a higher standard as representatives of Bethesda Church.)

    As an essential part of the Bethesda Church family, you have a responsibility to develop and exhibit mature Christian behavior. This should be the basic premise of your desire to participate in a facilitator position here at Bethesda Church.

    While serving the Body of Christ as a volunteer at Bethesda Church, you pledge to present a good appearance at all times. In both attire and behavior, you should strive to demonstrate Biblical standards in all situations.

    As Christians, the way we present ourselves to others is of vital importance to the way others perceive Christ. Our conduct should never be an embarrassment to Christ, but should exemplify the best qualities of a mature believer and volunteer. Exemplifying the highest moral commitment, Bethesda Church’s leaders are to maintain a disciplined life of Bible reading and prayer. You must also refrain from such things as:

    1. Profanity
    2. Indulging in much wine or other alcoholic beverages
    3. Dishonest gain
    4. Illegal drugs
    5. Sexual immorality
    6. All behaviors which might cause Christ to grieve and others to stumble

    By providing an example in speech and action, we encourage others to grow in Christ and become volunteers themselves. This is a way of life measured by the heart and commitment of each leader in the Bethesda Church family. We should regard it as an essential part of our development, not as an imposition or restriction.
