Small-Group Leader Training Program
Set a firm foundation for your new small-group leaders.

It can be difficult to train new small-group leaders. What exactly do brand-new leaders need to get started? How can you help them feel confident as they begin leading? And how can you train them effectively with as little stress as possible?

With the Small-Group Leader Training Program, we've done the hard work for you. You'll get all the tools you need to implement an engaging and practical training in a half-day workshop, a five-week turbo group, or a variety of other formats.

Comprehensive Leader's Guide

Designed to help you make the most of the program. You'll learn how to use the program in your context, the best way to include your own church-specific information, and how to lead every aspect of the training.

Five Video Sessions

We've brought together five small group experts to speak into your new leaders, giving them practical tools to lead well.

Participant Workbook

Includes engaging activities, discussion questions, and resources to help your leaders apply what they learn in the five video sessions (workbooks are purchased separately).
