Fall 2014 Small Group Ministry Coaching Network

My Fall 2014 Small Group Ministry Coaching Network experience is designed to give you the tools and strategies you need in order to build a small group ministry that works in the 21st century. The coaching network program will expose you to a new perspective. While it makes sense to many that in order to get different results you need to do different things…it’s not always clear what those different things might be. The coaching network program is designed around the idea that different, not better, leads to the kind of strategy that connects beyond the usual suspects.

Who will be part of the network? The network is limited to 12 participants and is designed for small group champions who serve in a local church. Because of the nature of the role, champions may be senior pastors, executive pastors, small group pastors and directors, ministers of education, and other key leaders.

What will you learn?

  • Keys to effective point leadership in small group ministry
  • How to design a small group system that will thrive in your setting
  • How to identify, recruit and develop small group leaders
  • How to build an effective coaching structure
  • How to plan and launch a church-wide campaign (and launch a wave of new groups)
  • How to work with your senior pastor to maximize small group ministry impact
  • The latest innovations in small group ministry

What will you receive?

  • One day workshop in Las Vegas (9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.).
  • Five monthly coaching sessions. Anchored by a 90 minute monthly conference call, this group session provides focused exposure to the strategies that will build a more powerful platform.
  • Focused training on key strategic steps including planning with the end in mind, developing an annual grouplife calendar, identifying an unlimited number of new leaders, launching new groups in waves, and impacting your community through groups.
  • Tools, strategies and next steps to be implemented after every session.
  • Access to special password protected network pages with customized content for each session.
  • Scheduled 60 minute one-on-one calls to address questions more specifically, bring team members into the conversation, or help equip your senior pastor or other key staff members.
  • The opportunity to connect with other network participants between sessions
  • Email access to Mark during the six months

What are the expectations?

  • Participate in all six sessions
  • Invest $1000 to participate
  • Cover your own travel expenses to the one day workshop
  • Commit to the reading and exercises between sessions
