City Groups are the primary way we “Scatter” throughout community during the week and the DNA of Citylight Church. This is where we find true connection with others in the body of Christ and live on mission inviting others into community and making disciples.

What are the Qualifications for a City Group Leader?

  • A love for Jesus and have made a decision to follow Him. You don’t have to be a biblical scholar, but Jesus must be your Lord and Savior and you are being spiritually formed to look more like Jesus.
  • A willingness to accept responsibility for leading in an area of a City Group. For example, lead spiritual discussion, provide hospitality and hosting, mobilize the group to serve in the community, shepherd the group members, or organize communication.
  • A teachable and trainable attitude to uphold the Citylight Core Values (UP, IN, OUT) in City Groups and willing to sharpen leadership skills.
  • A posture of humility knowing we are instruments in God’s hands and depend upon His Spirit to lead.
