Small Groups

Customized Team Consulting

Sermon-based small groups are the hub of ministry at North Coast Church.  Take a behind the scenes look at what keeps our small groups ministry thriving at this two day workshop.

Team Requirements

In order to be truly effective, we ask that each team attending this consulting session bring at least 4 people, including your Senior Pastor.  We have found that processing this content together and collaborating as a team will exponentially multiply its effectiveness.

If you would like a completely private session the investment starts at $2,500. If group sessions are available, the investment started at $1750 per team of 4. Additional attendees will be billed at $350 each.
