LifeGroup Leader Resources


Wooddale Church exists to honor God by making more disciples for Jesus Christ. Our LifeGroup ministry enhances that vision by helping disciples grow in a relational environment, with an intentional leader and a reproducing process.

What is a disciple?

In Matthew 4:19, Jesus said, “Follow me, and I will make your fishers of men.”

A Disciple of Jesus Christ is someone who is:

    • actively following Jesus (“follow me”)
    • being changed by Jesus (“and I will make you”)
    • committed to the mission of Jesus (“fishers of men”)


For Wooddale’s LifeGroup ministry to be the primary conduit for people to walk the pathway toward spiritual maturity.


LifeGroups exist to build relationships with God and friends, impacting everyday life through connecting, growing, serving and sharing.
