About Student-Led Cell GroupsSo you want to know more about Student-Led Cell Groups? In a nutshell, they are small group settings, where students are reaching out to their friends with the love and truth of Jesus Christ. In a typical small group setting you can expect fun and food, a time to go through some study material covering the bible and issues that students face, and prayer.
I remember reading a post in the old forum from a student, who obviously did not understand what student-led cell groups were. Nope, they are not a cult, not some strange club or clique that requires strange initiations to become a part of. It is simply students getting together to study cool things in the bible that are relevant and true, to pray for each other and for their school, communities or the world around them, and to build solid relationships with others their age.
