Groups of 4-14 people meet in homes, offices, and coffee shops throughout the area to hang out, study the life of Jesus, and apply it to their lives.

The truth is, not everyone will find the best fit with the first group they try. This is why we encourage you to select a few groups that interest you. Contact the leaders and try out a couple of different groups before choosing the best one for you. The simple strategy for finding success in Small Groups is to not give up. We believe there is a group that is right for everyone—including you!
God designed us for community. Whether you feel like a “people person” or not, we all need each other. That’s why we have Small Groups to find community that has the potential to change our lives. Just like most things, you won’t know until you try, so check out the online directory and connect with a Small Group today!
If you have any questions or if you are not exactly sure what kind of group is right for you email us at We’ll be happy to answer any of your questions and help find the right spot for you.


You don’t need to have it all together to lead a Small Group – you just have to be willing to let God use you as you take your next step. To host a group, you choose a topic that interests you and selects a time and location to meet with others to share it. Then, we give you a few essential tools like online leader training, a directory where others can find your group and support throughout the semester.

We believe God uses LifeGroups to change people’s lives, and as a Small Group leader, you get to be a part of that.

If you’d like to start a Small Group, reach out, and we’ll help you get started!


Our hope is that the following resources provide you training and materials to help you as a leader. We want help see your Small Group thrive. By having these resources available 24/7, you have the opportunity to learn valuable skills through equipping videos and articles.

What happens at a Small Group meeting?
You’ve probably seen Small Groups meeting and not even realized it. A Small Group looks like friends at lunch, teams playing basketball, or people studying a book or topic of interest. At its core, a Small Group is a small gathering of people, and it is less about what you do and more about who you do it with. By participating in Small Groups, you can expect to connect with others through a common activity, engage in life-giving conversation, and request prayer.
How often does a Small Group meet?
Where do Small Groups meet?
Small Groups meet in places like homes, parks, restaurants, coffee shops, and office buildings. The leader of the group selects a meeting spot that best fits the purpose of the group. Life Groups happen throughout North Dallas with the largest availability in the Allen & McKinney areas.
How long does a typical Small Group stay together?
Most Small Groups meet for a semester. This way, new people can join groups easily and regularly. Also, the semester format allows you to try multiple groups each year. As relationships form, some groups choose to stay together for consecutive semesters, but new members are always welcome.
Is there childcare available?
Childcare varies from group to group. When you search our directory for a Small Group, the group profile will indicate if childcare is available.
