Excel Compass Groups are the lifeblood of our ministry. Because of the size of Excel, we want to provide quality ministry for each student and to develop genuine Christian Community. Compass Groups are where relationships are built, where one-on-one ministry happens, and where most of our activities take place.
They meet on every Friday night at 6:30
(except the first Friday night of each month for our team planning)
OUR COMPASS OUR BROKEN DOWN INTO FOUR GROUPS
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)
East Side Eagles
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)
West Side Bulls
4 Without oxen a stable stays clean,
but you need a strong ox for a large harvest.
Proverbs 14:4 (NLT)
North Side Lions

Some great things happen in compass groups. Students who have given their lives to Christ are getting connected. Students go deeper in their walk with God and gain more discipleship. 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 do our best to make sure our leaders aren’t the only people talking and spending the entire evening teaching or preaching.
