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 you’re part of our Life.Church family. We believe 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 he also hosts the Craig Groeschel Leadership Podcast, which is a great resource for growing as a LifeGroup Leader. 😃
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 church services at live.life.church, where you’ll find vibrant worship, an engaging message, live community, and a team of volunteers ready to welcome, interact, and pray with you.
