START A GROUP

If you’re ready to start a new group at Hillcrest, that’s great! We love seeing leaders using their gifts to meet specific needs and multiply disciples. 

Here is what we believe are the essential elements of a Hillcrest disciple making group.

  1. We use the bible to inform our discussion

  2. We share our lives, and care for each other.

  3. We support each other in our next steps on Hillcrest’s discipleship pathway.

  4. We pray together and for one another.

  5. We pursue maturity in Christ by making disciples who make disciples

  6. We identify  upcoming leaders from within the group and give them opportunities to lead, so that we can multiply groups. 

  7. Group leaders are empowered by and accountable to Hillcrest.

Talk to our LifeGroups Pastor about getting your group started.
