Overview-Small Groups 101

Our first offering, Small Groups 101 gives you everything you need to establish a small-groups ministry in three modules: Capture the Vision, Organize and Build, and Train Your Leaders. Each module is a combination of clear, concise guiding documents and video tutorials. Work through them at your own pace to get your ministry up and running on your schedule.

Capture the Vision: This module brings pastor, staff, parish council, key lay leaders, and your potential coordinator together and guides them through creating a vision of the small-groups ministry in your parish.

Organize and Build: This module brings your pastor and core team together to form the framework for your ministry. It will help you choose the best candidates for each role to ensure the success of your small groups. You will learn best practices for invitation and publicity, celebrating successes, and continuing ministry growth. This module will also introduce you to potential resources for your groups.

Train Leaders: This module will train the facilitators who will guide small groups in your parish. It will empower your leaders to effectively run small groups in person where possible or online where necessary.
