The Pathway:

Many leaders have mentioned the need for a plan so their Groups can last. The Pathway is a three-year plan for you and your small group to follow. This will help you sustain your Group over a long period of time and bring depth. 

The pathway is designed to help your group grow as followers of Christ in three areas:

  1. Live Boldly In Your Faith
  2. Be Confident In Sharing Who Christ is with others
  3. Live out your identity in Christ
