Living Free Community or Lifeline Connection
Contact us and order the Small Group Ministry Start Up & Operating Manual,and connect with a member of the Field Leadership Team.
Your small group community ministry begins with community awareness and involvement, contacting pastors and civic leaders to assess need. We suggest a "Pastor's Reception" as the first step. A step-by-step process is detailed in the start-up manual.
Start-Up Core Team

Living Free training is scheduled in a neutral location, encouraging involvement of all denominations. The seminar will educate members of the community and is required for those who will be trained as small group facilitators.
