Learn More About Leadership Roles

Group Leader

A Small Group Leader is an OLS Parishioner that is eager to accompany others on their faith journey. They are in charge of communication within the group and with the Parish ESG Leadership Team. They set the schedule, guide the group through each meeting's content and questions, and are empowered to make modifications as necessary.

Sometimes a Group Leader is also the Host but the Group Leader and Assistant Group Leader are always different people.

Assistant Group Leader

A Small Assistant Group Leader supports the Group Leader in all of their tasks. They function as both a backup, in case the Leader cannot fulfill their responsibilities one week, and a Leader-In-Training so that they feel prepared to take on a Group Leader role in the future should the opportunity present itself.

Sometimes an Assistant Group Leader is also the Host but the Assistant Group Leader and the Group Leader are always different people.

Host

A Small Group Host welcomes their fellow group members into their home with a sense of radical hospitality. Their job is to help everyone feel comfortable and at ease so that they can engage in group discussion. They work closely with the Leader and Assistant Leader to set the meeting schedule and help to remove distractions such as pets during the meeting time.  Hosts should provide some sort of light snack or refreshment or coordinate with someone else to bring it.

The role of Host may rotate among other people in the group if that is desired by the entire group.  The Leader or Assistant Leader can also serve as a Host if they wish.
