In light of our Biblical convictions that community is a critical part of sanctification and growth of a believer, and a crucial aspect of being God’s image-bearers, we want to see everyone living out their faith in a group setting. For this reason, being in a Community Group is encouraged for partnership, and Community Groups are our primary vehicle for discipleship and an important strategy for the mission of the church.

Therefore, your service as a Community Group Leader is vital to the health and mission of Anchor Church! You will play a huge part in determining the legacy of Anchor Church and transforming our city.
