A DVD TRAINING FOR THE SMALL GROUP MINISTRY LEADER
This DVD set and workbook will teach you the essentials of implementing a Small Group Ministry at your church. Learn from Steve Gladen, Global Pastor of the Small Group Ministry at Saddleback Church, with over 30 years experience in Small Group Ministry and on staff at Saddleback Church since 1998. During this time, Saddleback's Small Group Ministry has grown from 250 adult small groups to over 7,000 adult small groups balancing the Great Commission and the great commandment — growing individuals and group in spiritual health.
DISCOVER AND LEARN HOW YOU CAN TAKE THESE LEARNINGS AND APPLY THEM TO YOUR SMALL GROUP MINISTRY:
HOW TO DEFINE SUCCESS. It's best to start with the end in mind. What are you really trying to accomplish through your small group ministry? Do your Small Group Leaders clearly understand their assignment? How do you know if you are being successful?
HOW TO CONNECT EVERY PERSON IN YOUR CHURCH. Most churches consider themselves successful if they have half of their weekly attendance in small groups. No matter what the size of your church, you can dramatically increase the percentage of your members in small groups.
HOW TO DISCIPLE PEOPLE, NOT JUST LEAD GROUPS. Have you ever noticed that Christians tend to know more than they practice? Do you want to help your small group leaders focus more on transformation than information?
HOW TO MOBILIZE YOUR GROUP FROM SITTING TO SERVING. Research has shown that people fail to serve, not because they don't want to serve, but because they haven't been asked or haven't been offered specific opportunities. Learn how small groups are the perfect tool to catalyze mobilization.
HOW TO MOVE FROM MAKING FRIENDS TO REACHING FRIENDS. How do authentic community and passionate evangelism fit together in small group life? Can they? Learn how to get people to reach out beyond their comfort zones of Christian friends!
HOW TO EXPERIENCE "GOD MOMENTS" IN YOUR GROUP. Do you think of worship as the latest song? What does worship look like in a small group? Worship is more than music. Discover how to create an environment conducive to groups experiencing the awe of God.
