What is a Homeport Group?
A Homeport Group is a gathering of 10-20 people who meet to help believers grow closer to God and each other. Each one of our Homeport groups will look different and naturally take on their own personalities. Some Homeport groups will form around common interests such as hunting/fishing or running/fitness where as others may form based on gender such as Men’s/Women’s groups. There will be groups that form around a particular Bible study or even around a particular geographical location or community. There really is no end to group possibilities. So with this in mind, we have identified a five non-negotiable items to help give some consistency for all of our Homeport Groups.
HOMEPORT GROUPS NON-NEGOTIABLES
1. Bible Study
2. Relational environments
4. Missional heart to serve others
5. Leaders (Host/Facilitators) that equip others for hosting/facilitating/ministry/mission

Why Homeport Groups are important?
The idea of gathering together in smaller groups for discipleship and mission has been around since the beginning of the church. Take a look at how Acts 2:42-47 describes the early Church’s first small group gatherings…
“They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and miraculous signs were done by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had need. Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.”
