No matter what your denomination is, or what size your church is, the one thing every leader of small group ministry wants is healthy small groups. It is not enough to have 50% participation, or even 110% participation. The goal is health. But how can you, as a leader, move your groups in that direction? Every leader of small group ministry has the same type of questions:
- How can I get my small groups to become more engaged and proactive?
- How can I bring health and balance to my groups?
- How can I get my small groups to move beyond meetings to being places where life change happens?
- How can I get my small groups to move beyond their group and into the community as a living representative of Christ?
One of the easiest ways is to give your groups suggestions for activities and practices that create health and balance. One of our monthly features, Steve’s Tips, provides such suggestions. Divided into the categories of fellowship, discipleship, ministry, evangelism, and worship, these tips are practical and are a great way to engage and empower your small groups.
What are YOUR great ideas? We would love to hear from you! One of the greatest things about the Small Group Network is that it provides a venue for not only building relationships with your peers in small group ministry, but for also sharing of ideas and resources. Now is your time to share.
