While this retreat is designed for small groups, there's no need to limit it to "official" small groups. Any group of believers could use this material to have a fruitful day of rest. Or plan a retreat specifically for leaders with Plan a One-Day Retreat for Leaders.
10. Organize Your Ministry
The right structure will allow your ministry to thrive and grow.
Most leaders involved in small-group ministry consider themselves relational. We like connecting with people and encouraging them to grow. Because our focus is on relationships, many of us let organization slide. We figure our time is better spent on investing in people rather than organizing the ministry.
But the truth is that an organized ministry allows us to shepherd and care for people more effectively. That's what Will Johnston has learned in his years leading a thriving small-group ministry, and he shares his hard-won wisdom with us in this training tool. You'll learn critical skills to help you organize, structure, and support your small-group ministry regardless of size, model, or context.
