Small Group Leader Training

Small groups are our primary discipleship environment and are primarily for discipleship. Small groups are also community, where people carry each other’s burdens, rejoice in personal victories, encourage one another in times of need, and persevere through difficult stretches in the life of the group. This training provides you with Biblical principles to help you build Christ-centered community; to lead and support the people within your care. Small Group Leader Training is required for leaders of Port City Small Groups.

SERVING & OUTREACH

When Helping Hurts

When helping the poor, good intentions are not enough. While meaning well, we can actually do more harm than good. This study shows us how to help the poor without hurting them so we can engage in effective poverty alleviation in our city, region, and world. Please register if you’d like to be notified when the next group is scheduled.

For: All Followers of Christ
Format: Classroom
Length: 6 Weeks
Cost: $26 for books

Sending

For each person going to serve on the mission field, senders are also needed back home. Senders play an equally important role in missions by providing the ‘goers’ with moral, logistical, financial, prayer, communication, and re-entry support. At PC3 we have created a Sending Ministry to help connect those at home with those going to serve on the mission field. Romans 10:13-15 makes it clear that both ‘goers’ and ‘senders’ are necessary to fully complete our mission. We would like to have senders serve on each short-term mission team for the purposes of helping with logistics, communication, praying for the team, encouraging them, sending them off, and helping them return.

This training prepares ‘Senders’ to contribute in this most valuable way.

For: All followers of Christ and especially for people applying for a Short Term Mission.
