Whether you’re trying to launch a small group ministry for the very first time…or you’ve tried in the past and it just hasn’t worked out…I can help you. In addition to over 20 years hands-on experience in small group ministry, I helped develop the coaching program for Purpose Driven and helped over a thousand churches launch groups with the 40 Days of Purpose and 40 Days of Community church-wide campaigns.
While on the staff at Fellowship of The Woodlands (now Woodlands Church) I restructured the small group ministry and helped grow if from 10 groups to over 400 in less than 5 years. In my two years at Lake Avenue Church we relaunched a small group ministry and added over 200 new groups. Since my arrival at Parkview Christian Church, we’ve grown from 75 groups to over 300 in 18 months using a combination of church-wide campaigns and connection events.
In preparation for the 2011 fall ministry season, I helped two consulting clients, both fast-growing churches, launch a combined 700+ new groups (along with another 600+ “grab and go” packs to use with a few friends).
If your church is interested in launching (or relaunching) a small group ministry, I will work with your team to:
- Assess your current adult discipleship strategy
- Develop a comprehensive plan that will help you get to where you want to go
- Develop a strategic timeline that will maximize the impact of your launch
- Build into the strategy the belts-and-suspenders that allow you to sustain the largest number of new groups
If your church is ready to launch small groups in a way that connects way beyond the usual suspects, I’d like to help you. Contact me about a consulting relationship with you or your church.
