Still Not Convinced? Hear from a past leader: Stephen Haverstick

During my first-year as a student at Messiah, leading two small groups was a huge part of my college life. I led a guys' bible study on my floor and co-led a second group with some friends. While this was demanding at times, it was SO worth it. These bible studies quickly became the highlights of my week and I wouldn't have traded them for anything! Both groups are still going strong as we continue our senior years together!! I've developed friendships that will last a lifetime, strong spiritual bonds with brothers, and a deeper understanding of God. I've also gained a more profound desire for studying Scripture, caring for others, and connecting on a spiritual level with people.

I know how intimidating and stressful college can be even without any leadership responsibility, but if you have a passion for digging into God's Word or encouraging others in their walk with God, I want to assure you that taking the risk to lead a group can be an incredibly rewarding experience. (Maybe one of the best ever!)
