Go Big with +Small Groups
Jump Start Consultation

Pretty much every church leader agrees that small groups are:

  • The Most Effective Discipleship Tool
  • The Most Effective Guest Assimilation Resource
  • The Most Effective “Pastoral Care” Alternative

And yet most churches struggle to get their small groups programs off the ground. There never seems to be enough interested participants, enough groups for those who are interested, or enough leaders to keep the program going. No wonder church leaders identify small groups as one of the most difficult programs to successfully launch and maintain.

Churches with multiplying small groups and small group leaders are the ones that truly go big. These churches see 50, 60, 70 percent and more of their congregations participating regularly in small groups. It’s not just because they have well-trained leaders… these churches have developed a small group culture that goes big.

Slide Background

 Step 1: Analytics

Every small group type is designed to accomplish a specific purpose. What are your small groups designed for? Are you getting the results you expect? Our Complete Go Big With Small Groups Audit will dig deep to get the answers to those questions.

 Step 2: Immersion

Multiplying small group programs share a personality. Discovering your program’s temperament is a key to going big with your small groups. We’ll provide you with easy-to-use equipment to record representative small groups for our review.

Step 3: Resources and Training

Effective small groups that go big multiply leaders and multiply themselves. But multiplication doesn’t happen accidently. Use our DVD training kit for a one-day training event to train your current and future small group leaders and we’ll join you live during the last session for additional insights and to field questions.

 Step 4: A Roadmap, a Journey, and a Partner

Once we’ve analyzed the data, viewed your small groups, and participated in the training we’ll create a roadmap so you can go big with your small groups. But a roadmap is just an idea until you take the first steps on the journey, so for the first three months we’ll be your travelling partner to ensure a good beginning. With a personal one-on-one coach, you’ll experience the excitement as your small groups go big.
