I’m working on writing a book that I hope will help a lot of people. (in fact, it will release on November 18!) It’s grown into the culmination of the last 6 years of my life as a small groups pastor. I weave my story through strategies you can use to help get small groups started
- for the first time ever
- alongside Sunday School
- in conjunction with other off-campus groups
- in a big way
- in a tiny way
I’ll also walk through how to keep groups going, maintaining growth over time through coaching, curriculum, and continued spiritual growth.
Starting Small also includes a bonus download section. It was originally going to be a part of the book, but the more I put in to it, the more I realized it was a separate resource that could stand on its own.
This is stuff that didn’t fit into overall flow of the book, but that I thought would be helpful. I thought it would be helpful because it’s the info I get asked about when I talk with other groups pastors. It’s
- sign-up forms
- leadership agreement/covenants
- a curriculum track
- a sermon-based small group discussion template
- childcare ideas
- leadership application/interview
