Q What is a Stewardship of Leadership Group?
A A Stewardship of Leadership Group is a weekly gathering of humble leaders, both men and women, where Biblical Scripture is read, contemplated, and discussed. Each piece of Scripture pertains to a monthly topic that all leaders can relate to. The spontaneous discussion that ensues after the Scripture is read each week comes from each participant’s heart, relative to their home, work, and community experiences.
Q Are Leadership Groups Bible Study Groups?
A Leadership Groups are not Bible Study Groups. Though the Leadership Group discussion is centered on a weekly Scripture passage, the focus is on recognizing Christ’s presence in our everyday journey and His presence in those around us. There is one Teacher in each Group: The Holy Spirit, who inspires group members to share their experiences and struggles with each other as we support one another in our personal walk with Jesus.

Q Typically, what are the best times to meet?
A Meeting times and days are at the discretion of the group. However, we’ve found that mornings between 7:00 and 7:30 seem to the best times to begin the meetings. Some groups have found evenings at 6:30 or 7:00 are also good times to begin.
