Holistic Small Group Leadership–DWA 2018 Synod Workshop

Holistic Small Group Leadership

Led by The Very Rev. Justin Read-Smith, Rocky Mountain Dean

Every church should have small groups, right? But what do small groups do? What is the purpose of a small group? When is a small group more than just a small group? Small groups provide relationship and growth in Christ between members of your church, but can be so much more. Effective leadership, intentional mission, missional discipleship, neighborhood impact, implementation of the Church’s vision locally – all of these can be the outworking of a small group. The workshop, Holistic Small Group Leadership, will help you to understand the importance of small groups within your church, to identify leaders, to shape the framework for effective small groups, and to reach your neighborhood for the Kingdom.
