A. There are a few steps to take:
- Determine who you want to invite, when you want to meet, and where you will meet. If you are hoping to meet on the Living Streams campus, you MUST contact John Youngstrom for a location assignment: firstname.lastname@example.org or 602-957-7500.

Q. How do I get people to join my group?
A. There are a few ways to promote your group:
- Word of mouth. Tell your friends and ask them to spread the word.
- Request a table in the Courtyard for a weekend, place a table sign on it and stay with the table. This is a great way to meet and greet new people before and after services to tell them about your new group. Contact Bev Abbott: email@example.com or 602-957-7500.
- Use social media to talk up your group.
- Once you submit your Group Information Form, we will add your group to our searchable online listing.
