Excel Compass Groups are the lifeblood of our ministry. We are a small group based ministry. Because of the size of Excel, it is difficult for us to provide quality ministry for each student and to develop genuine Christian Community. That’s great news for you. You now get to make that quality ministry and Christian community a reality for students through our Compass Group program!!! Compass Groups are where relationships are built, where one-on-one ministry happens, and where most of our activities take place. They meet on Friday nights at Belmont
Where You At? Rep it like you mean it
South Side Stallions
19 “Have you given the horse its strength or clothed its neck with a flowing mane?20 Did you give it the ability to leap like a locust? Its majestic snorting is terrifying!21 It paws the earth and rejoices in its strength when it charges out to battle.22 It laughs at fear and is unafraid. It does not run from the sword.23 The arrows rattle against it, and the spear and javelin flash.24 It paws the ground fiercely and rushes forward into battle when the ram’s horn blows.
Job 39:19-24 (NLT)

31 But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength.
They will soar high on wings like eagles.
They will run and not grow weary.
They will walk and not faint.
Isaiah 40:31 (NLT)

4 Without oxen a stable stays clean,
but you need a strong ox for a large harvest.

Some of the great things that happen in compass groups are: Students who have given their lives to Christ are getting connected. Students who want to go deeper in their walk with God and gain more discipleship are getting this. Students are finding a place and a way to build friendships with other Christians their age. We want to see students opening up to one another, sharing their feelings, experiences, and questions. We DON’T want to see a leader being the only person talking and spending the entire evening teaching or preaching. We want to see you building relationships with your students, encouraging them in their walk with God, and helping to lead them into an even deeper walk with Christ.
