Joining a Community Group

Why do people join a community group?

People join Community Groups for a number of reasons. You might have a passion for mission, compassion for certain people, affinity toward a particular CG leader, chemistry with group, or you might be training to launch a separate CG. There are a lot of reasons why you might join a community group. Mainly, CG's are focus on living out the upward, inward, and outward of the Church through our definition of a community group: "A Family of Disciples of Jesus Sent to BLESS a Pocket of People."
