Welcome to Cadres!

Cadres are small groups of people gathering together for a common purpose for a season of 8-10 weeks. They are at the heart of the LBCF vision of learning to live and love like Jesus. They create rich intentional environments for discipleship. Cadres are hosted and lead by various members of the LBCF family and they cover various content and topics as the season’s change.

We have 3 Cadre seasons at LBCF; Winter – launching January 28th, 2018, Spring – launching April 2018 and Fall – launching September 2018.
