John 1:1 and 1:16 are my favorite! "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God..." "And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth." I love the fact that our Jesus is the Alpha and the Omega. In Genesis 1 it says, "In the beginning..." "Then God said..." There He is, did you see Him? In the beginning God said and as He spoke He created. And who was speaking? Jesus, the... Continue reading

There is one word that describes how we recruit community leaders (coaches). RELATIONSHIPS! The Community Pastors, as well as our existing Regional & Community Leaders, are always looking for an up and coming leader. When we find one, we spend extra time getting to know them and their passion for groups & leadership. When the right candidate for the role is found we then invest in them equipping in the practical side of the role of community leader. When they are ready we send them out under the care and leadership of one of our Regional Community Leaders. There is... Continue reading

Canyon Ridge's Group ministry has the charge to build community throughout our church… We attempt this by trying to form groups with the people coming to Canyon Ridge. In doing so we hope that they will grow to become disciples of Christ. Let’s consider the word disciple(s) for a moment. It is used over 300 times in the NT. In context you find disciples always in community with each other and ultimately Jesus. But, there is a time when the disciples were found truly alone, separated from Christ and the others. That was when Jesus was arrested and taken to... Continue reading

As they were coming down from the mountain, He gave them orders not to relate to anyone what they had seen, until the Son of Man rose from the dead. Mark 9:9 (NASB) The disciples were ordered by Jesus not to relate to anyone what they have seen… until the Son of Man rose from the dead. So, why did Jesus ask His disciples to wait and how does this apply to me? Should I wait for Him to rise in me and what does that imply anyway?What is the connection between Jesus' resurrected life and my own? I will... Continue reading

Connect, Care and Grow. These three words describe the basic job description of every leader Canyon Ridge has… Care: By reading the Gospels of Matthew, Mark Luke and John you will see that Jesus responds to three major categories of care: emotional, physical and spiritual. He illustrates the importance of caring for people holistically. Canyon Ridge has the resources available in each category to holistically care for people. Emotional & Physical Care A question to consider is, “When a storm comes to someone in your group, where does the help come from?” The best answer is for the group to... Continue reading

Connect, Care and Grow. These three words describe the basic job description of every leader Canyon Ridge has… Grow: Growth in an individual is a result of a partnership between them and God, as Apostle Paul said, “I planted, Apollos watered, but God was causing the growth.” So, how do we partner with God to encourage growth? First, recognize the individual must choose to take responsibility for their growth and to partner with God. Once they have they must put into action what they’ve learned. As Jesus said, “If you love me, you will obey what command.” Growth is the... Continue reading
