How can small group leaders combat Zoom fatigue? Oliver Hersey explores that question with Ryan Hartwig, Courtney Davis and Jason Sniff, authors of Leading Small Groups That Thrive: 5 Shift to Take Your Group to the Next Level. They gathered data from churches, to learn how much small groups impacted people's spiritual growth. Ryan offered creative solutions for how leaders can create a relaxed environment for online small groups this fall.

"Sometimes that means, let’s all turn off our videos. We don’t all need to be taking in visual cues from 15 other people, and look at yourself while you’re talking. That’s exhausting."

Jason indicated that the real purpose for small groups is documented in Ephesians 4:12-13 " to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood."
