Thank you for your interest in hosting a 7-week, DVD-based growth group, focused on the weekend messages from EastLake Church. Our team is looking forward to a brand new season for groups! Your next step will depend on whether you are a new group leader or an existing group leader.
New Group Leaders:
We ask all first time group leaders, or those wanting more information on leading a growth group, to attend our New Host Training. There are only four more options to join this training at the Chula Vista Campus.
The training is one hour and will teach you what it means to be a great growth group leader. In addition to learning a lot of practical “how to” information, we want you to know that our greatest goal is to provide opportunities for people to make friends and experience life change together in a safe and fun environment. In other words, we want normal people, who are seeking God and have an interest in making friends to host an EastLake group. We hope you will jump in on the invitation and opportunity!
