Creating a Small Groups Culture

Bob FranquizChurch

One of the questions I get regularly is, “How do you create a Small Groups culture in your church?” There’s several reasons, but here’s one that’s absolutely essential: Eliminate the competition.

When Small Groups is one of 50 ministries people can get involved in, Small Groups lose their power to involve everyone because there’s too much competition. When you say, “We want everyone to get into a small group” and you follow that up making canceling anything that could compete with small groups for time, space, volunteers and attention, you’re on your way to creating a culture of small groups.
