Improving Communication for Effective Small-Group Ministry

Improving Communication for Effective Small-Group Ministry

Communicate your message about small groups to church leaders, small-group leaders, and church members in a clear and compelling way.

One of the most common topics among church staff is communication. Unfortunately, you may spend more time talking about fixing miscommunication than proactively working on communicating well. It's just too easy for communication to go wrong. And yet, the effectiveness of small-group ministry largely depends on how well we're communicating. From communicating about values and vision to letting people know how to sign up for groups, this resource will help you communicate more effectively.
