Leading Small Groups

Leading Small Groups: How To Gather, Launch, Lead, And Multiply Your Small Group

Are you thinking of becoming a Small Group Leader but aren’t sure where to start or if this is the right ministry for you?

Do you currently lead a Small Group and are looking for ways to improve your group or navigate a particular issue?

Have you been leading a Small Group for a while now and are wondering how to keep things fresh, how to stay emotionally and spiritually healthy, and to avoid burning out?

No matter where you are in your Small Group leader journey. Leading Small Groups: How To Gather, Launch, Lead, And Multiply Your Small Group by Chris Surratt has something for you!

Leading Small Groups 1

Leading Small Groups is an inspiring resource that encourages us to put aside all of the overwhelming notions that we sometimes associate with the word “leader” and approach our roles as good shepherds who lead like Jesus did (compassionately, from the heart, from the front and sacrificially).

The author addresses a wide range of topics that will be of interest to both new, growing and seasoned leaders, such as:

  • Launching Your Small Group
  • Facilitating Your Small Group Meetings
  • Practicing Genuine Authenticity
  • Developing A Bible Study
  • Avoiding Group Killers

The book also contains several useful resources in the back including sample Small Group Covenants, Icebreakers, and Forms.

Leading Small Groups 2

What I like most about this book is the Questions to Think About at the end of each chapter. The inclusion of these chapters make this a great book to use as a Small Group Training Resource for new and existing leaders!

Being a Small Group Leader is an incredibly rewarding experience but when a challenge arises, it is nice to have a resource like Leading Small Groups at your fingertips to refer to.

I highly recommend this book to you!

I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.

    Thanks for sharing on the #LMMLinkup. This sounds like a great resource for leaders.

  5. I led a book club this summer for the first time. It was fun and not all that different from leading a committee, a class, or a Bible study. I’m sure this book would have been helpful!
