Welcome, LifeGroup Leader! 🎉
Thank you for stepping up to lead people to become fully devoted followers of Christ! We’re so glad you’re part of the team. Life.Church Online is all about community. As a LifeGroup Leader, you’ll help give people a place to belong, be real, and grow in their faith. This guide will give you all the info you need to start impacting lives all over the world. 🙌🌍 Let’s get started!
Who is Life.Church? ⛪️
Whether you’ve attended with us for years or are just now learning about us, we’re so grateful that you’re part of our Life.Church family. We believe that a church isn’t a building—it’s the people. We meet in multiple locations around the United States and globally online with a desire to make a lasting difference in your life, in our community, and in the world.
Life.Church’s Senior Pastor is Craig Groeschel, who started the church in 1996 with a handful of people after God gave him a vision for a different kind of church. He and his wife, Amy, live in the Edmond, Oklahoma area and have six children, one grandson, and another grandchild on the way. 👶🏼
What is Church Online? 🤔
In addition to meeting in physical church locations, Life.Church also meets globally online. Life.Church Online was launched in 2006 out of our core value to do anything short of sin to reach people who don’t know Christ.
Today, we host over 80 weekly online church services at live.life.church, on Facebook Live, and on YouTube Live, and on Twitch, reaching an audience of over 300,000 people representing every country in the world. Each service features vibrant worship, an engaging message, live community, and a team of volunteers ready to welcome, interact, and pray with you.
Here are just a few amazing stats about Life.Church Online:
- In 2018, over 12 million people attended one of our online services.
- Of those, over 15,000 gave their lives to Christ! 🎉🎉
- We have over 600 volunteers serving from more than 50 countries—and you’re now one of them!
