FRIENDS GROUPS FAQs
Friends Group Leader: Leaders provide their Friends Group members with support through prayer, encouragement and by providing the group content. They need a dynamic spiritual life, growing in intimacy with God, with a positive influence inside and outside the church. They mature their leadership skills by attending quarterly training with other Friends Group leaders provided at SCFC. Friends Group leaders oversee weekly (or biweekly) FG meetings (in-person and/or online), mentor an apprentice (leader in training) when applicable, and act as shepherd for their group.
Apprentice (leader in training): A person who takes on the role to learn and grow their leadership and shepherding skills while shadowing their FG leader. They also provide assistance to the FG leader regarding support for the meetings and planning.
Host: FG hosts provide the site for FG gatherings whether it be in their home and/or via Zoom. Hosts are people who create safe environments where FG participants feel free to learn, grow, and experience healing. Hosts can also be FG leaders too.
