Small Group Leaders Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I lead a House Small Group?
Though there are many reasons to lead a House Small Group, the most important one is because you are a participating member of The House Church and want to contribute to the overall health and well being of The House Family. Small Groups exist to give the people of The House a safe place to enjoy community, grow in friendship and blossom individually. They are also a great place for those who lead them to grow in leadership, life skills and love for others.
How do I know I am ready to lead a House Small Group?
If you are a member of The House, love the Lord, and are excited about committing your time to invest in the people of The House—then you are ready! No special skills are needed.
How do I register my House Small Group
Visit the Small Group Registration page HERE.
Once your small group has been approved, you will receive an e-mail with the necessary information about House Small Group Leaders Training, our Small Group Fair, and other next steps.
What topic/activity should my House Small Group be about?
The small group system at The House is “free market” which simply means that you can have a small group on just about anything! It can be based on an activity, interest or specific topic. The best way to choose a group is to pick something that you are already naturally interested in or passionate about. We do have several different video curriculums that have been designed for small groups available for your use. You can find more information about those here.
Where should I hold my House Small Group?
If you are an activity based small group, that question is answered. (For example, a golf group works best at a golf course or driving range, so meet there! ) Other groups may have more options. We highly encourage you to hold your group at your home—what better place to create a “homey” and welcoming atmosphere? If, for some reason, your home won’t work we suggest you look at a local coffee shop or similar establishment. The House’s church building is available for use only on a very limited basis. Unfortunately, we don’t have the staff or space to make it widely available, but we would love to help host your group when possible. You can request building usage here.
