best-posts-of-2016-q4A LOT happened on in 2016. I published over 250 articles on small group ministry, connecting people, making disciples, identifying, recruiting and developing coaches, curriculum reviews, etc.

A lot happened.

Looking back over the year, I thought it might be helpful to identify the best posts of 2016 by quarter. With over 250 articles it seemed pretty tough to narrow it all the way down to the top 10 of the year.
