Introducing: Ben Reed and

Share via:

Have you discovered Ben Reed yet?  He’s the Community Groups Pastor at Grace Community Church in Clarksville, TN.  He’s also one of a select group of younger small group pastors around the country that are doing a fantastic job in what they do.  I loved a recent Twitter reference that Steve Gladen made about Ben: “Got schooled 2day by 4 sharp up and coming SG Pastors @benreed @spenceshelton @mattwharmer @adamworkman Awesome time Oh to replay those days!”  High praise coming from Steve!

Although Ben’s blog isn’t all small groups all the time, it has some great content about group life and leadership and would be a very good daily read to add to your Google Reader.

In addition to very regular content on his own blog, Ben is a contributor to and SmallGroupTrader.

You can also follow Ben on Twitter and connect with him on facebook.

    Ben is a great leader. His “learner” strength has worked well for us as he’s become a small groups expert in a relatively short amount of time. I love to watch Ben as he now begins to invest in other church’s small groups ministry.
