Making Small Groups Work
This past Saturday I coached my very first tee ball game. I know the kids had fun, but I’m not sure they had more fun than I did. Half the kids are 4 and have never played team sports before. The other half are 6 and many played last year, but are still learning the concept of being on a team. Small groups can be like that as well. There are people who have never been in a small group and don’t know the rules, and those who have been in groups for a couple of years but still don’t grasp the team concept yet.
Small groups can be awkward or they can be amazing (I’ve been in both, and I’m sure you have been as well). With that in mind, we want to make more groups awesome, and fewer awkward. Bill Donahue, Henry Cloud, and John Townsend want that as well, and put together a training tool called Making Your Small Group Work. This DVD-based study helps groups (whether just starting, or established) become better groups. Watch the clip below to see a sampling of the small group study.
In addition, would you take 5 minutes to take a survey for me? I am trying to gauge what type of resources we should pursue to publish, and how best to let people know that they exist. Please click this link to take the short survey: Click here to take survey
