What happens after I submit the Growth Group Host form below?

After you submit the form your group will be added to the Growth Group Host list (that will be visible to the public when the general group sign up period begins in September).

Are there any initial tips to help me fill my group fast?

Yes! There are three things that you can do to fill your group fast.  First, sign up to host a group early (so that your group will be visible as soon as the general sign up period begins).  Second, tell your family and friends about your group because you are the best spokesperson for your group.  Third, offer childcare. Offering childcare will greatly improve the chances of people signing up for your group.

Can I invite people to my group who don't attend Heritage?

Yes! Heritage Growth Groups are open to everyone.  We encourage you to invite your friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers to your group.
