5 Keys To Creating A Culture Of Small Groups

If you haven’t already noticed, small groups are either present or emerging in churches all over. They’ve replaced many Sunday School classes and for many churches, have become a part of the very DNA and culture of that church. But just because they’re popular doesn’t mean that every church is finding success with them.
So no matter if you are thinking about implementing small groups in your church or if you’ve had them for a long time and are looking for ways to improve them, I think you’ll really enjoy what we have to share with you today. This past week, I read through Andy Stanley’s book Creating Community and if there is any church that knows how to use small groups to their advantage, it’s North Point Community Church in Atlanta.

 

So in the next couple of minutes we’re going to give you 5 keys to build a small group culture in your church and show you how these 5 keys have become the very blueprint of North Point’s ministry!

Team Discussion Guide

In this workshop, we are going to focus on helping your team discuss the next steps needed in order to bring clarity and simplicity to your existing small group ministry, or help you discover the core principles of your groups as you work to form them.

 

Set aside time in your next leadership meeting for your team to watch this video and then have them discuss the questions together under the Team Discussion below. Write down any answers you uncover and come up with some action steps that can be taken this week from them. Then, as a team or individually, work through the What’s Next section to see how your church can best implement the 5 keys found in the video. Write your action steps, notes, key deliverables, and due dates in space provided.

Sometimes, in leadership development, we're inflicting pain on ourselves. We may not recognize it, though. We may be blaming other people for the shortage of leaders. You're frustrated because you have a shortage of leaders in your organization or in your church and your blaming everyone around. But often the problem is self inflicted! So I want to give you 3 Self Inflicted Leadership

Sometimes we make leadership more difficult than it needs to be. If you think about it, leadership is easy 90% of the time. It’s the 10% of the time is why you get paid to be the leader. It’s why you’re in the position, it’s the difficult decisions you have to make. But the truth is, leadership really is easy 90% of the time, but not for everybody. There are some people who just struggle

Having and maintaining a healthy team might be one of the most underrated and overlooked aspects of church leadership. We all are too focused on performance, too busy being busy, and too distracted by our weekly to do-list. We have become consumed with finding ways to be “smart” in ministry, yet completely neglecting whether or not our teams are healthy.

We all want our more leaders in our church. I've never met a pastor that said they had too many leaders! But if you're like most pastors, you were never trained in how to train, develop and lead other leaders.

I must say, this is an incredible idea. The creative way that you display the information really keeps my attention.   I am already planning on showing at least one of these videos in our staff meeting each week so my entire team can learn some bite-size, practical information."
