At its core, the Influencers is a ministry which guides individuals into an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ.

This is accomplished in a small-group setting called a Journey Group. Participants meet for a 9-month period with a group of believers who share the same heart to go deeper in their relationship with Christ. The key Scripture passage for this ministry is John 15, where Jesus said, “If a man abides in Me and I in him, he will bear much fruit.” As they begin to understand and participate in this process of abiding, true life transformation begins to take place. These individuals become Influencers to their world, which means marriages, children, businesses, and communities are impacted.
