I spent some time this week with the Small Group Leadership Training Kit, a great new comprehensive resource from Steve Gladen and the Saddleback Small Group Team.
The Small Group Leadership Training Kit includes everything (and I mean everything) you need to engage, equip, empower, and energize your small group leaders “to do life with purpose.” Regardless of the small group ministry model you’re using, there is some serious help in this kit!
Find out how to win your copy of Saddleback’s New Small Group Leadership Training Kit below!
There is a lot packed into this kit! One of the things I love about it is that the content can really be used two ways (and even a blend of the two). With its modular approach, it’s possible to put it to use it as is, right out of the box. Gather your leaders for an on-campus meeting or pull them together in huddles in living rooms across your area and just watch the included videos. Even better though, the modules can be used as an example allowing you to easily create your own version, featuring you and your team. And you can see too, that you could easily blend the two options (use some out of the box now and develop your own as you go).
You should know too, this is a comprehensive training and development resource. The kit includes training and encouragement videos for New Host Training (for brand new leaders), as well as Leader Training 1 and 2 (for developing leaders) that can be used in conjunction with learners’ guides, leaders’ guides, powerpoint decks (making it easy to provide periodic centralized gatherings. The content can also be used by your coaches in off-site huddles (onsite gatherings and offsite huddles can both be leveraged to complete the training).
As much as I appreciated the large collection of new host and leader development videos, I was equally impressed with the included email templates (to communicate effectively with new hosts and developing leaders), completion certificates, leader application, and graphics helps. This will be a real time saver for small group ministries just getting started implementing a leader training pathway.
And last but not least, the Small Group Leadership Training Kit includes their Spiritual Health Assessment and Planner module ($40 value by itself!).
Honestly, there’s too much in this kit to describe here! You can check out the full scope and contents right here.
Bottom line? Whether you end up using it off-the-shelf or create your own training modules using the template of the kit, this is a fantastic resource! I highly recommend it.
