Become a Community Group Leader


Are you a student who loves God, loves people, and loves living life on mission?  Then read on, because we are building our CGL team for the 2019-2020 year.  This is a team of students who value gospel-centered community and living on mission with Jesus.  Becoming a CGL is an opportunity both to be invested in as a leader as well as an opportunity to serve and minister to other students on campus.  There will be an interest meeting on the ministry, expectations, and application process on March 5, 2019. For more interest in the meeting please contact the LU Shepherd Office.
