SMALL GROUPS MINISTRIES
What Are Small Groups?
Our small groups are the primary pathway for you to build relationships with others at Evangel, to be cared for, to use your spiritual gifts, and to grow in your walk with Christ. Small groups typically meet every other week. A typical small group meeting consists of a time of worship and prayer, Bible study, mutual ministry time (men with men, women with women) and fellowship. The biblical curriculum is common to all groups and is usually based on the weekend teaching.
Meetings are approximately two hours in length, and each group has a leader, an apprentice leader as well as approximately ten other members. There are small groups that meet on various nights throughout the week. If you are not in a small group, but would like to join one, please sign up HERE or contact Judy at the Evangel office. She’ll be happy to get you connected!

Our Small Group Values – S E R V E
The members of a small group will, on an ongoing basis, asses their own development in Christ, confess areas of struggle to one another, and set personal goals for growth in Christ in the year to come. Throughout the year, they will share their progress and encourage one another in their pursuit of godliness.
Evangelism and Prayer
Each household within the small group will commit to pray for specific households within their neighbourhood who have yet to embrace Jesus Christ. As a small group, they will pray together for these neighbours, and hold one another accountable to prayerfully and intentionally reach out to these families both individually and corporately.
Each small group is open to welcoming new members and will have at least one apprentice leader or “leader-in-training” who is preparing to launch a new group as the Lord adds to their number.
Each member of a small group will commit to support the greater body of Christ at Evangel through involvement in various ministries and service opportunities.
Extending Care and Compassion
The members of a small group will be committed to care for one another and those around them. This will be manifested in practical help for those in difficult or crisis situations, including hospital or home visits, meal preparation, prayer, and referral to church and community services.
