Needs within our Congregation
Serve as a Leader-Coach for the West Side Community Groups
September 2014 – June 2015
The West Side congregation is now accepting applications for Community Group Leader-Coaches for the 2014 – 2015 ministry year. Leader-Coaches come alongside the CG leaders (of up to 3 groups) by encouraging, supporting, caring, and praying for them on a regular basis. As a West Side Leader-Coach, you’ll receive on-going training and care from the Community Group Directors starting with a fall semester Intensive. You’ll also have regular opportunities to connect with other Leader-Coaches for peer-support. This lay leader opportunity is open to Redeemer members affiliated with the West Side congregation. Previous experience in community groups and/or community group leadership is desired.
Applications are due May 15 and can be downloaded HERE.
