Healthy Small-Group Leadership

Healthy Small-Group Leadership

Your ministry is far too important to handle as an unhealthy leader.

Small-group ministry is far too important to be led by unhealthy, burned out leaders. Whether you're a volunteer leader or a paid staff member, you need to ensure that you're a healthy leader. This resource is for any and all leaders in small-group ministry—from the pastor to the coach to the small-group leader. You'll learn how to find your joy in God rather than in your work for him. Plus, you'll gain a better understanding of what it looks like to be a holistically healthy leader. Use this resource on your own or with a group of leaders to assess your health together.
