Leader Meeting


Our Main topic will be on BOUNDARIES.

Breakfast will be provided. 


    Group Meeting Information

    Each semester we ask our leaders to fill out a survey giving us up-to-date information on their groups. The purpose of this is:

    • To ensure we have current basic information on your group and current members
    • To get specific semester-related information for your benefit and our planning purposes (i.e.: are you doing the Wednesday night study, do you need a meeting room, etc.)
    • To get meeting day information so your attendance emails go out on the correct day
    • To find out if your group is accepting new members and, if so, have the correct information on the online group finder

    We’ve worked hard to make gathering this information as painless as possible! Click HERE to fill out a quick survey so we can ensure we have your group information current!

    Complete before December 3 to be entered in theprize drawing held during the Leader meeting.

    Limited Meeting Space Available

    On Wednesday this fall, groups doing the Midweek study will be given priority for using on-campus meeting rooms; any unused room will be available on a first-come basis. If your group is doing the midweek study, you will reserve a room when filling out your Group Meeting Information survey.

    If your group is not doing the midweek study, please contact Mary Boyko at 281-363-9292 or to request a room.



    Grace Filled Marriage

    8 Sessions

    Brianne Crockett

    Couples come to the altar bursting with love for each other. Yet, based on how many marriages are unfulfilling, unhappy, or worse yet, end in divorce, it would seem that the love that gets couples married isn’t enough to keep couples married. Maybe if we had the ability to love unconditionally, like God does, love would be enough…but we don’t. Therefore, love falls short. Love isn’t enough to save struggling marriages.

    Guardrails: a system designed to keep vehicles from straying into dangerous or off-limit areas.

    They’re everywhere, but they don’t really get much attention….until somebody hits one. And then, more often than not, it is a lifesaver.

    Your friendships. Your finances. Your marriage. Maybe your greatest regret could have been avoided if you had established guardrails.

    In this five-session video study, Andy Stanley challenges us to stop flirting with disaster and establish some personal guardrails.

    Tom & Janice Freet

    It’s likely you have a giant in your life. It’s holding you captive, intimidating you with its taunts, and stealing your joy. Adversaries such as fear, anger, addiction, and others can stake a claim and, before you know it, gain a foothold in your heart. How do you live as if these giants are dead and silenced once and for all? In this six-session video Bible study, Louie Giglio examines the David and Goliath story to show you how: by focusing on the size of our God, not the height of your giants. As they go down, you gain freedom to walk in the victory Christ already won over the enemies that rob you of God’s best for your life.

    Beneath our tangible landscape lurks an invisible spiritual realm where unseen battles rage. It’s real. And it’s dangerous. If you’re prepared to remove the blinders and gaze into this unseen world, Chip Ingram is ready to take you there.

    Hang on to your seat. It’s going to be a journey inside the very folds of our Bibles, a journey that will teach us about our greatest foe, Satan, also known as Lucifer, Dragon, Serpent, and Son of the Morning Star.

    Although this lying thief comes to “steal, kill, and destroy,” God details in His Word the battle plan to uncover Satan’s cunning deceptions and to resist his sinister schemes. The cosmic conflict exploding all around us will have eternal implications, for us and those we love. This eight-part series by Chip Ingram will help you prepare to do spiritual battle with the enemy of your soul- and win! You’ll learn how to clothe yourself with God’s “spiritual armor” so you can be confident of your certain victory over the scheming enemy.

    Where do you turn when the world around you grows dark? In this study of the Gospel of John, Dr. Tony Evans encourages us to turn to Christ by reminding us of the two purposes for the beloved disciple’s book—that we would believe in Jesus and find life in his name. Despite what our culture may argue, there is only one hope that is truly trustworthy and that is our savior, Jesus Christ. So join Tony for this twelve-session series that will draw you back to the essential truths of our faith and the life found in our king.

    Heaven is a hot topic on today’s bestseller lists. But what does the Bible tell us about the afterlife? What happens the moment after we die? And what will our redeemed relationships be like? Ingram digs into Scripture to reveal what God wants us to know about the hereafter—and how it affects our decisions today.

    One at a Time

    Nobody grows up dreaming of waking up, going to work, heading home, watching Netflix, scrolling through social media, and then doing it all over again the next day until their last breath. We all want to be used to change the world. We don’t want to spend our lives being time-wasters, or space-takers, or binge-watchers, or game-players, or even book-readers. We want to be difference-makers. But it’s easy to get caught up in the everyday stuff of life until the years slowly go by, and with each passing year, the question seems to get louder: Am I making any difference in this world? We want to make a difference, but there are so many opinions on the way to do that. Maybe there’s a different way to make a difference, and we’re just missing it. Without a doubt, Jesus is the person who has made the biggest difference in all of history. So, how did Jesus make such a difference in this world? If we study the story of his life as recorded in the Gospels, there are a number of answers we could highlight, but there’s one particular phrase that captures how Jesus had such an impact, and this phrase is how he wants to use us to make a difference: one at a time. Making a difference isn’t measured by a viral post or a name on a building. It isn’t determined by a following or a fan base. Making a difference isn’t dependent on what’s in your bank account or who’s in your contacts. Want to make a difference? Focus on the one. That’s it. That’s the secret of the way of Jesus. One at a time.


    A Contrarian's Guide to Knowing God

    Debra Myers

    Sometimes what we believe about the Christian life comes from a single but prominent point of view—an older Christian we look up to, a preacher, or a parent. But is there only one way of living the life of a Jesus follower?

    The Christian life—even one centered on grace—can still feel like a long list of dos and don’ts. But what if there’s more (and less) to our faith than we typically believe? In this series based on his book A Contrarian’s Guide to Knowing God, pastor Larry Osborne tackles popular assumptions about Christian living that create stress and failure rather than growth and joy.

    Interested in Dispensational Eschatology? This 6-week study will introduce the key topics of Bible prophecy in an entertaining and understandable way, and from a Dispensational perspective.

    3-Session Studies


    Jump To Study

    Our screens dominate our lives. In a unique way, they hold the power to bring us together yet can also keep us isolated from those physically around us. With a click, we can connect with family and friends or join a debate over an issue that interests us. Screens bring information and inspiration, but they can also carry temptations and stresses. What kind of power do you give to your screen? Do you use it to assist in your calling, or does it distract you from your calling?

    In this three-part series, pastor Kyle Idleman will teach us how to redeem the screen. Join him as he applies the truths of Romans 12 to our lives, showing us the power of Jesus to transform us. Rather than allowing our screens to conform us to the world, in Jesus we can make screens a tool to change the world.

    4-Session Studies


    In this 4-part series, Dr. Emerson Eggerichs sheds light on an often overlooked, yet indispensable element of a healthy marriage—respect. Combining biblical instruction with scientific expertise, Emerson provides insight into the unique ways in which God has designed both men and women and how they can rightly embrace their differences in marriage. As couples come to see the heart behind their partner’s complaints, they will better understand the place for both love and respect between husband and wife. Rather than becoming another statistic, struggling marriages can break their Crazy Cycle and become thriving marriages by living in accordance to God’s good design.

    Jump To Study

    Many people have a tough time believing that God still speaks. We’ve learned from Scripture that God spoke to His people in ancient times and in mysterious ways, but how do we hear His voice now? The truth is God still communicates with His people, but He often speaks in a whisper—not to make it difficult to hear Him, but to draw us close.

    In this 4-session series, Mark Batterson teaches what it means for Christians to discern the voice of God in their lives. He will introduce the seven love languages of God—each of them unique and entirely divine. By learning to tune in and decipher each language, Mark equips believers to hear God’s guidance and grow closer to Him.

    God is speaking. Do you know how to listen?

    Who are you when life is steady?

    Who are you when storms come?

    Most of us have been on the receiving end of rejection, a broken dream, or heartbreak. And while this is not an easy space to go through, when we are grounded in the truth, we can endure the tough times.

    In this powerful series, Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow passionately shares glimpses of his journey staying grounded in the face of disappointment, criticism, and intense media scrutiny. Following an exceptional college football career with the Florida Gators and a promising playoff run with the Denver Broncos, Tebow was traded to the New York Jets. He was released after one season.

    In Shaken, Tebow talks about what he’s learned along the way, building confidence in his identity in God, not the world. This moving series features practical wisdom from Scripture and insights gained from others who have impacted Tebow in life-changing ways.

    Though traveling hard roads is not easy, it’s always worth it!

    5-Session Studies


    In this five-session small group bible study, pastor and best-selling author Craig Groeschel sheds light on relationships, thoughts, and behaviors that quietly compromise our well-being. Using concise teaching and honest humor, Groeschel provides a source of inspiration and encouragements for a faith-filled lifestyle that will keep you free of spiritual toxins.

    More than an educated, insightful look at the negative aspects of our day-to-day culture, this grace-based experience will challenge you out of complacency into a life of clean, pure, and focused living based on the standard of God’s holiness.



    We are all busy. Some of us can’t remember the last time we rested or even had free time. Our busyness can feel productive but it is a toxic distraction, sapping our spiritual, physical, and emotional vitality. It may seem like we have no choice but to live at a frantic pace, but God has a better path for us.

    Join pastor and author John Mark Comer in this five-part series as he addresses one of the greatest threats to our spiritual lives: hurry. Instead of allowing our calendars and screens to control our lives, Jesus offers us a new rhythm of life, overflowing with grace, peace, and beauty.




    Next Step partnered with Francis Chan, acclaimed speaker and author of Crazy Love, to produce the Greater Than film series. Francis walks us through his own difficult childhood to help us understand that God is greater than any pain, sin or hardship that we might encounter in this life. Watch the videos and follow along with the study guide, and you too will realize that God is greater than any obstacle standing in your way.

    6-Session Studies


    Get ready for the wettest, stormiest, wildest trip through the Gospels you’ve ever taken! The Gospels are dramatic and incredibly wet, set in a rich maritime culture on the shores of the Sea of Galilee. Yet we’ve missed much of this perspective—until now.
    In this 6-part series, Leslie Leyland Fields, author, speaker, and seasoned Alaskan fisherwoman, takes us on a journey through the life of Christ. She leads us across the waters of time and culture out onto the Sea of Galilee, through a rugged season of commercial fishing with her family in Alaska, and through the waters of the New Testament beside the ragtag fishermen disciples. Her own story and her fresh insights will challenge our understanding of Jesus and what it means to “Come, follow me.”
    PSALM 23

    Many people are familiar with Psalm 23. But because we all know it, we often breeze through the psalm without slowing down long enough to rest in the assurance it offers. In this 6-part series on Psalm 23, pastor Matt Chandler introduces us to the great shepherd, the Lord, who promises to provide for every need of his flock. Though only six verses long, this psalm teaches us profound truths about our loving and protective God. By studying Psalm 23, we’ll encounter a life-transforming question: Do you trust the Lord to care for your needs?

    Do you know Jesus? It’s one thing to know facts about him, but to experience his love, wisdom, and guidance in your life is what it means to follow him. On the night before he was crucified, Jesus invited his disciples into a deep relationship with the triune God—and his invitation stands for us too. In this 6-part series, Francis Chan dives into John 13–17, a passage rich in promises, commands, and eternal truths. He’ll remind us we aren’t called to a part-time faith—we were made to know, walk with, and commune with God.

    In this six-session small group Bible study (guide sold separately), Sacred Marriage, writer and speaker Gary Thomas invites you to see how God can use marriage as a discipline and a motivation to reflect more of the character of Jesus.

    Your marriage is much more than a union between you and your spouse. It is a spiritual discipline ideally suited to help you know God more fully and intimately. Sacred Marriage shifts the focus from marital enrichment to spiritual enrichment in ways that can help you love your mate more. Whether it is delightful or difficult, your marriage can become a doorway to a closer walk with God.

    Everything about your marriage—from the history you and your spouse create, to the love you share, to the forgiveness you both offer and seek by turn—is filled with the capacity to help you grow in Christ’s character.

    Designed for use with the Sacred Marriage Study Guide.



    Who Is the Holy Spirit?

    The Holy Spirit plays the incredible role of both empowering the individual believer and the church—and as we study the Trinity’s third member, we gain a clearer understanding of our omnipotent triune God.

    In this six-session series, Dr. Tony Evans leads us on an in-depth exploration of the Spirit’s characteristics, duties, and mission among humankind. Take a closer look at some of the titles of the Spirit and appreciate how he influences and inspires our faith in Christ.



    If someone asked you to explain the gospel, what would you say? What is the good news of the Christian faith? Writing to the Galatians, Paul made it clear how easily we can be tempted to turn toward fraudulent gospels, especially those that teach we can earn God’s love through our works. Though they may have the appearance of truth, they are lifeless and leave us empty in the end.

    In this Book of the Bible series, Kyle Idleman dives into the book of Galatians, one that contains some of the clearest explanations of the gospel in the New Testament. Through biblical study and engaging lessons, Kyle shows that true freedom is found in surrender, not self-dependence. Because our gospel is not one based on our works, but faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ.

    What does serving  together do for a group?

    Group Service demonstrates how we can accomplish so much more together (many hands make light work) and puts our focus on others instead of ourselves. It grows the spiritual maturity within the group and connects the group members relationally as they work to physically accomplish a goal.
