“During this small group God showed me that showing up is more valuable that being perfect! Extended His grace, he showed me His patience and faithfulness. I also learned a lot about myself and how others see me :) Small group changed my life by showing me that I matter, what I have to say matters, I am a welcomed part of community and God showed me that He really uses me!” -Sari Lansimaki
“My favourite part of this Small Group was discussing the journal questions and sharing with each other what God is saying about the topics every group meeting. It was really cool to be open and vulnerable about things that I'm having a hard time with, but it also gave me an opportunity to learn from others' journeys and experience.” - Stephan Zijl - Defining the Relationships Group
“Something that God did for me during this small group was that He encouraged me to pursue a deeper relationship where both my and my partner’s needs are met.”-Martin Sidler - Defining the Relationships Group
“During this small group the guys interpreted several of my dreams and God really spoke through them as they gave me some brilliant insight into my own life! I am now also more confident to interpret other’s dreams!” -Griffith Hawkinson
“I learned that prophecy is not scary, it is something we can all do, and it is a beautiful way to encourage someone's heart. I love that we learn about it in a practical way but also have the space to learn and grow by going out to practice it! A beautiful space to make mistakes.”— Nicole, Prophetic Small Group
“God helped me combat fear through this small group. I was fearful of leading, leading effectively and with confidence, and the members of this group gave me encouragement on being confident in what I was doing! I felt so build up, and I got so much more confidence in myself, and in what God was doing through me. God is just so good, and small group is great!” -Jennel Fletcher
“I learned how to “soak” in God’s presence. This is about experiencing a download from God and experiencing the joy, peace, and laughter of the Holy Spirit. I feel peace in the Spirit’s presence. I learned how to hear God’s voice, and hearing what Jesus thinks about me is amazing!”— Ben Broadland, Leaders on Fire 1 Group
“This small group has helped me to learn to hear God's heart for myself and for others more clearly. I've learned that He simply wants me to know how much He loves me, and to keep filling me with His love until I can't help but give it away. I have so much less fear about sharing Jesus with people now!”— Prophetic Evangelism Group
I think it was great to have a core group of guys who were able to meet and seek out what God was saying through Scripture and prayer. I liked that we had a fairly diverse group as far as spiritual background and knowledge. I think our group thrived especially when we opened it up for discussion in addition to the teaching that occurred.
