How can small groups foster spiritual growth? 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. For example, small groups with a clearly defined purpose have more longevity. Some of their research disproves common misconceptions about small groups: the ideal number of group members, and how to create spaces to see people really grow and change. Courtney shares about her time in a small group that lacked substance to sustain the group. You'll walk away from this episode with a clear sense of how to define a purpose for your small group in the year to come.
