Host or Lead a Group
We encourage everyone to leverage their spiritual gifts, interests, and hobbies for God’s Kingdom. A great way to get started is by hosting or leading an Echo group — a welcoming space for people grown in their faith and build friendships with others!
The Difference between a Host and a Leader
Hosts are volunteers who facilitate a conversation around the Sunday message but have not yet completed the leadership qualifications to be endorsed by Echo. Leaders are volunteers who meet Echo’s leadership qualifications and are trained and endorsed by Echo staff.
How to Host a Group
Engaging in meaningful discussions while sharing a common interest is a great way to grow spiritually and connect with others. As a host, you’ll identify a common hobby (i.e. basketball, cooking, hiking, etc.) and facilitate a conversation around the Sunday message using the Talk It Over guide.
Facilitate conversation and help those in your group connect with each other.
How to Lead a Group
Leading others to passionately follow Jesus is one of the most fulfilling parts of being a Christ-follower. As a group leader, you’ll faciliate or teach Bible-based content to help people deepen their faith and grow in their spiritual practices.
