Leading a group doesn’t have to be intimidating – you don’t have to be an expert in the Bible. Once you sign up to lead, we'll make sure you have everything you need to be successful, including tools, curriculum and training sessions. See our Leader Resources page.

Apply to Become a Community Life Minister

Community Life Ministers (CLMs) inspire and equip our congregation to live out the five essential practices of the Christian life  by guiding new church members through a short study of Pastor Adam Hamilton's book The Walk. After that study, CLMs connect those members into small groups, ministry programs, Sunday school class, or other discipleship opportunities.
Community Life Ministers are deeply committed Christian leaders who volunteer or are nominated by their peers, and are selected by pastors and staff after a thorough application and interview process.
