LIFEGROUP LEADER COVENANT
By committing to serve as a LifeGroup Leader, you will be viewed by those in your group as a leader in our church. This document is a standard of conduct for leaders at LSC. It should not be considered lightly and dismissed as “red-tape” neither should it be seen as a way of “weeding out” people from leadership. It simply states what we’ve established goals for leaders at LSC to strive for as their standard of conduct.
By providing an example in speech and action, we as leaders encourage others to grow in Christ and become servant-leaders themselves. This is a way of life measured by the heart and commitment of each leader in the LSC family. We should regard this covenant as an essential part of our spiritual development, not as an imposition or restriction.
