Here at Faith Community we believe that working on a team makes ministry more fun - we like to say "It's always better together!"
At the helm of our Groups@Faith Ministry is our Groups' Pastor, Liz Groman. Liz's mission is to model Christ's leadership by serving, encouraging and supporting our Groups Leadership Team and Group Leaders as they follow the call of God through ministry. You can always find Liz at the Welcome Table ... ready and willing to encourage and bless you with words of wisdom or a warm hug ... urging you to be salt and light in all you do.
The other members of our Groups Leadership Team are Scott Case, Duane Horning, and Olga Kenney. Each of them is responsible for assisting, resourcing, mentoring, training and praying for our Group Leaders as they serve those God has placed in their groups. Each member of our Groups Leadership Team has successfully led groups and each one makes a commitment to serve in this role for at least one year.
If you have any questions or concerns, or would like to find out more about how you can begin a new Group @ Faith, please contact our Groups Pastor or any of the members of our Groups Leadership Team. They are all here to serve you!
Liz Groman, Opportunities Pastor
I am so privileged to be part of what God is doing at Faith Community and to have the opportunity to serve as Opprotunities Pastor. I take great joy in releasing, supporting and encouraging the remarkable leaders God has called out of our church to serve ministries and opportunities here at Faith. You will also find me assisting in a Sunday School classroom because I love to see the Lord through the eyes of children. John and I have been married over 40 years and have enjoyed working together in our business as well as in many capacities and ministries within the church. We have a beautiful daughter, a wonderful son-in-law, and three extraordinary grandchildren who love and serve the Lord. I can usually be found at the Welcome Table after the Sunday morning service. I would love to meet you in person. Hugs!
I have been part of this Christian fellowship since 1986, once we escaped LA for this beautiful city. Yes, I am a Charger and Padre fan, but I also am a loyal UCLA supporter. My wife Laurie and I have been married for 25 years, and have two sons Chris and Joe. I enjoy helping others launch their group so that they can serve the Lord using their skills and passionate interests. On Thursday evenings, you can find me hosting an Outpost Group at Shakespeare's Pub in Mission Hills.
My desire is for we, His people, to be equipped "for works of service, so that the Body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ." Eph. 4.12-13. I delight in spending time in the Word individually and with others, for "All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work." 2 Tim. 16-17. My precious wife and partner, Cathy, and I are hosting a DIG group, and we would be delighted for you to join us.
I have been married to George for 30 exciting years! We have an amazing daughter and son-in-law, Elizabeth and Matthew, as well as two granddogs named Lacey and Sawyer! My primary love language is service so I find it a joy serving our family at Faith. Together, George and I enjoy ministering to married couples helping them strengthen their marriages through the practical application of Scripture. I have also served on the Church Council and am currently a member of the Groups Leadership Team. I feel grateful and blessed to be part of this loving Body of Christ called Faith Community where I am encouraged and challenged to grow in my walk with the Lord. I love meeting new friends, so if you see me, please come and say hello!
