Home Team Ministry – Where you Belong!
LRBC Home Teams are the heart of our church family as the primary place where love and care are both given and received. Our small groups provide personal ministry to the family of Lake Ridge from the family of Lake Ridge. They provide the safe environment to know and become known by one another, to exercise spiritual gifts, and to develop discipling and leadership skills with followers of Jesus. Try becoming part of one of these interactive communities who serve to discover and meet needs at every stage of out Christian life experience.
Home Teams are small groups who meet regularly during the school year and less frequently during summer months, with purposes, membership, meeting schedules and venues decided by group members. Each home team takes on a unique personality as a result of its members’ interests, interaction, and availability. Members use their spiritual gifts and serve others in this one-another setting where servant leadership is developed. Home teams also seek to meet the basic human need to know and be known by one another, with the goal of loving and serving one another and inviting outsiders into this community of relationships. As leadership is expanded through preparation of apprentice leaders, home teams are to reproduce daughter groups who will continue the process of reaching out to include new members.
Home Team Leaders are individuals recognized as leaders of the small groups. They are responsible for spiritual mentoring and training members to one another functions, and are accountable to home team coaches.
