Groups Team Leaders invest not only in students, but also in their teams, in order to help team members minister effectively to students each week. Team Leaders are held accountable for their assigned small group of Mercy Hill Students. This includes creating a hospitable and positive small group environment, creating a culture of discussion, accountability, and prayer among the group, leading games, and intentionally connecting with students. Groups Team Leaders are also expected to develop team members, ensuring they are equipped to engage students on a weekly basis.
