Effective Small Groups Made Easy
Some topics are so engrained in you, they become part of your LEADERSHIP DNA. This topic would be one of them for me. I'm excited for the conversations it will prayerfully spark when your Alliance group is together. If you know me, you probably already know what I'm talking about.
This ALLIANCE, "Effective Small Groups Made Easy," talks about what I believe to be the greatest pragmatic tool for discipleship and growth. And in truth, I'm not telling you it will be easy, but as a bit of a leadership coach, if I can point you one direction to make the FOCUS of your programming energy...this is it! For those of you who already HAVE a small group ministry, this ALLIANCE can give you the tools for a most valuable RE-booting of your groups.
Let me share the top 3 reasons why I think small groups fail:
1. They are glorified Sunday School classes with a "talking head" instead of being highly interactive and relational.
2. People don't spend enough energy on the steps I am suggesting.
3. They QUIT too soon!
So let's take a run at dialoguing on 10 pragmatic guidelines to help you and your Alliance group, launch or re-launch a THRIVING small group system. My prayer for this ALLIANCE resource is that it helps your Alliance group take their youth and young adult ministries from being ministries WITH small groups to a ministry OF small groups. There's a really BIG difference between the two.
