Q & A: has assembled a panel of experienced, respected leaders who love small groups and want to share their knowledge about leadership and ministry. Each month, we'll give an opportunity for one of these leaders to share his or her advice on a specific area of small-group ministry, as well as an opportunity for you to contribute to the conversation and even ask your own question.

Here's how it works: When you submit a question for our experts' panel, your inquiry will be combined with others like it. The next time we pose questions to our experts, we'll try to make sure someone addresses your question in particular or, more likely, the general concerns underlying your question. We work with our panel to gather new questions and answers every few months, so feel free to submit anytime.
