At King Road we want to see people exploring who God is, digging into His word, growing in grace and truth, and going into the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
In a GLC you can be a part of a small group of people who regularly gather to eat meals, study the Bible, pray, and serve the community together.
GLCs aren’t based on age or ethnicity, but rather built around a desire to grow in our love and service to Jesus and each other.
When you connect to a GLC, you join our efforts to build a culture that is not selfish, but one that, in humility, values love for God and love for others above self.

Lead a GLC
Leading a Gospel Life Community is one of the ways that people can serve the body of Christ at King Road. GLC leaders will be trained, equipped, and supported by a pastor or other lay leader, and will keep in regular communication with them.
If you’re interested in leading a GLC, there is an application process that includes an interview with a pastor. Leaders must be members of King Road Church, adhere to the MB Confession of Faith, and submit to the authority of King Road Church pastors and Leadership Board.
Where do GLCs meet?In different homes throughout the Abbotsford/Mission area.
When do GLCs meet?Different GLCs meet on different days of the week, depending on the schedules and rhythms of life in that group.
What happens in a GLC?GLCs meet for fellowship over a potluck dinner, have a sermon-based study and discussion time, and spend time in prayer. GLCs are encouraged to find areas in the church or community where they can serve together.
Who leads the GLCs?GLCs are led by pastors and other church leaders.
Do you need to be a King Road member to join a GLC?Nope! If you call King Road Church your home but haven’t become a member yet, you’re more than welcome to join a GLC. Even if you’re simply exploring what Christianity is about at this point, you’re welcome to join a GLC. We just ask that if you call a different church “home”, that you would get connected there.
Do GLCs run all year long?The official schedule will be in 8-10 week ‘seasons’, but groups have the freedom to continue meeting in the ‘offseason’. We plan on having three seasons per year: one in fall, one in winter, and one in spring.
Where do the GLCs serve?This depends on each GLC. A group may choose a particular ministry within the church that they want to serve in, or they may choose to serve with one of our church ministry partners outside the church, or they may choose to serve at a local school, seniors home, or as a part of a sports league. The point of the service projects will be to make Jesus known in our community by building friendships and letting people know the Gospel through our words and our actions.
