Leader Resources

Awaken Groups exist because of our Group Leaders and their willingness to foster community to our Awaken families. Below, you will find a link to our New Group Leader Manual that helps group leaders understand what it means to facilitate a group and the details involved with being a leader. While the manual may not encompass all that you will encounter during a semester, it will help guide leaders with information on what to expect in a group, as well as ideas that will help get your group connected on a deeper level. We also have Group Coaches that will be assigned to every group leader each semester. The Group Coach is a resource available to help shoulder the weight of groups through guidance and accountability.

Awaken Church values community and reaching out to awaken people who are far from Christ to new life in Christ. Awaken Groups encourages all groups to reach beyond their group settings by creating an opportunity for group members to come together to make an impact in the community. We recommend that our group leaders, with their members, participate in one outreach each semester.

Below, you will find a link to suggested ministry partners to coordinate that outreach opportunity. Group leaders are encouraged to  and may contact their group coach if they have a preferred ministry opportunity they would like to choose.

Group Leaders will also find a link to submit photos (landscape/wide angle preferred) and/or short videos of the group engaged in the outreach. These photos and/or videos will be compiled to share with the entire church at the end of the group semester.
