Group Leaders

Welcome!

Groups are one of the best places for adults to meet other people and grow in their faith. As a group leader at Eagle Brook, your role is to pave the way for welcoming and engaging group experience – and we want to do everything we can to help you do that. This site is filled with tools + resources to help you lead your group well. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions!

 



Announcements

We're building you a better group!

Connecting in Community is one of Eagle Brook's five values, and we are always looking for ways to make this easier. That’s why, starting Fall 2019, we’re completely overhauling the way we do Groups at Eagle Brook!

Introducing Eagle Brook Groups

Every element of our new model is designed to make it easier for people to step outside their comfort zone and connect with others.

Groups will now run on a session basis—fall, winter, and spring. Each session lasts eight to ten weeks and provides a lot of flexibility. You can sign up for a different group each session, take a break for a session, or continue with some people you connected with. Signups will happen the month before the start of a new session.

It may take a few different groups, but we hope that over time, people will meet the people they truly connect with and continue meeting together.

If you have questions, feel free to connect with your Pastor of Groups, or email us at .

    Meet the Pastors of Groups

    The Pastors of Groups at your campus are your best resource for advice, prayer, and encouragement. No matter what kind of question you have (e.g., what to study next, how to handle a situation within the group, etc), they are there for you.
