Small-Group Development Plan
There’s a lot to keep track of when leading a small group: Leading Bible study, caring for individuals, reaching out to new people, worship and prayer, not to mention all of the ways you want to grow yourself as a leader and care for your soul.
We know it can be a lot.
That’s why we created the Small Group Development Plan. This two-page planning document will help you to prioritize some of the most important aspects of leading a small group:
- Your self-care
- Your growth as a leader
- The essentials of small group ministry (Encountering God, Exploring what God is doing, Empowering people, Establishing rhythms of communities)
- Your meeting-to-meeting elements
Try it yourself!
Think of this as your long-term small group organizer. You can type directly into the document or print it out!
Bonus: Want a weekly agenda?
Think of this as your short-term, week-to-week plan. You can type directly into the document or print it out! Create a new one for each meeting.
