Leadership Insight

Growth Happens Best in Community

At Forest Hill Church we value LifeGroups because we believe that Growth Happens Best in Community. LifeGroups are the place where faith in Christ is lived out through relationships. We value our leaders as people who share our mission to glorify God by making disciples who Know Christ, Grow in Christ, and Go for Christ. LifeGroup leaders are an essential part of the body of Forest Hill Church.

We believe that success for a person in a LifeGroup at Forest Hill Church is any movement closer to God. We ask our leaders to encourage group members in their spiritual growth. Leaders are responsible for creating an environment where growth happens and we pray and ask God to change lives through that environment and the relationships formed.

At Forest Hill Church we also offer Starting Point groups for people who are curious about Christianity, new to a relationship with God, or coming back to the church after some time away. These 8-week groups provide a safe place for questions and conversations about faith.

Starting Point leaders create an environment where people can explore their questions about faith and experience Christian community. The leader’s main role is not to teach or answer a bunch of questions, but to build relationships and ask good questions. We use the Starting Point study by Andy Stanley, which helps people to hear and understand the Gospel message, and prepares leaders to help people process their beliefs about who Jesus is and what He means to them.

If you are interested in becoming a LifeGroup or Starting Point group leader, we encourage you to check out our FAQ and prayerfully consider whether or not leading a group is a good fit for you. We’d love to talk and pray with you during the process! Please fill out our Leadership Interest form and a staff member will follow up with you.
