Launching Small Groups in a Smaller Church
Great advice for the majority of American churches
Studies show that a large majority of churches in the USA are smaller in size—having fewer than 200 members. So what is necessary when it comes to these churches starting a small-groups ministry?
If you are exploring the option of launching a small-groups ministry in your church, you have probably already planned one or more meetings to discuss the option. And that's where this Training Theme can help—it provides a schedule and helpful resources to help your church's leaders think through the issues surrounding a small-groups launch, and what your church should do next.
