Evaluations for Small-Group Leaders

Evaluations for Small-Group Leaders

Take a minute to give yourself and your group a quick checkup.

Those of us who lead a small group need to recognize that we have taken on a significant task: we have a direct connection to the spiritual health and wellbeing of the people we lead. We are not responsible for their spiritual health and growth—that is the Holy Spirit's role. But we as group leaders are responsible for creating an environment that is conducive to the work of the Holy Spirit.

With that in mind, it's a good idea for us to undergo a "group leader checkup" every now and then. We need to take a step back from our groups and evaluate whether we are doing a good job as leaders, and whether the group as a whole (and the individuals within) are responding in a positive way.
