This 6-DVD set (with a workbook on CD) will teach you the essentials of implementing a Small Group Ministry at your church. Learn from Steve Gladen, Pastor of the Small Group Community at Saddleback Church, with over 20 years in Small Group Ministry and on staff at Saddleback Church since 1998. During this time, Saddleback's Small Group Ministry has grown from 280 adult small groups to over 3,500 adult small groups balancing the Great Commission and Great Commandment and growing individuals in spiritual health.
Discover how you can take these learnings and apply them to your Small Group Ministry. This resource comes with an electronic workbook on CD and the sessions include:
- HOW TO DEFINE SUCCESS
It's best to start with the end in mind. What are you really trying to accomplish through your small group ministry? Do your small group leaders clearly understand their assignment? How do you know if you are being successful? How do small groups fit into your church's overall strategy and vision?
HOW TO CONNECT EVERY PERSON IN YOUR CHURCH
Most churches consider themselves successful if they have half of their weekly attendance in small groups. But the truth is that every person needs a small group family. No matter what the size of your church, you can dramatically increase the percentage of your members in small groups.
HOW TO DISCIPLE PEOPLE, NOT JUST LEAD GROUPS
Have you ever noticed that Christians tend to know more than they practice? Do you want your small group leaders to learn to help transform people instead of just informing them? See how small groups can serve as perfect incubators for spiritual growth.
HOW TO MOBILIZE YOUR GROUP FROM SITTING TO SERVING
Research has shown that people fail to serve, not because they don't want to, but because they haven't been asked or haven't been offered specific opportunities. Learn how small groups are the perfect tool to catalyze and mobilize your people for ministry.
HOW TO MOVE FROM MAKING FRIENDS TO REACHING FRIENDS
How do authentic community and passionate evangelism fit together in small group life? Can they? Research says that most Christians place evangelism low on their list of God's biblical purposes. So how do you get people to reach out beyond their comfort zone of Christian friends?
HOW TO EXPERIENCE "GOD MOMENTS" IN YOUR GROUP
Do you think of worship as listening to the latest CD in your car? Is it just the first part of your weekend church service? What does worship look like in a small group? Worship is more than music. Discover how to create an environment that will help your groups experience the awe of God.
