Over the last 10 years I've written a lot about small group coaching. A LOT! I tried determining the actual top 10 posts (according to Google Analytics), but realized after the fact that many were written in 2008 and 2009...and there are some big ideas that have emerged in the last two or three years.
Coaching, you know, is so important! Why? As challenging and difficult as it is to build an effective coaching structure, I believe if you don’t have coaching in place you will almost certainly fail at building a thriving small group ministry. Why? I believe this because I am convinced that whatever you want to happen at the member level, must happen to the leader first.
