Application to Serve as a Group Leader or Life Support Mentor
Life Support Mentors and Group Leaders are trained leaders that help care for those who are seeking healing and support.

Our trained team of life support mentors who come alongside people in difficult seasons or situations to minister insight, healing, and spiritual growth in a one-on-one, non-clinical environment. Life Support Mentors meet with individuals on a short term basis and are trained to provide a listening ear, supportive encouragement, empowered prayer, and biblical guidance. If you've benefited from support and healing during a difficult life season or situation that has resulted in growth and freedom, you may wish to help others by providing similar support on a one-on-one basis.

Support groups are led by trained volunteers who are there to help minister insight, healing, and spiritual growth in difficult seasons or situations. We are looking for leaders who can create groups that offer a safe environment for those who are struggling to experience the love of Jesus and the care of his community. If you've benefited from support and healing during a difficult life season or situation that has resulted in growth and freedom, you may wish to help others by leading a support or recovery group related to that same issue.
