A Resource From Youth Ministry Resources
Your small group is about more than just teaching adult bible study curriculum. It is also about people getting the relational needs that they have met. God has called us to love Him first and then also to love people. He has said that it is not good for us to be alone. And most of us have figured out that we can not make it alone in life. We need community and accountability. You need to create opportunities for this to happen. Over the next couple of blogs we will discuss how to do this because there are different strategies depending on the age group you teach or if your group is single or married. Gender also plays a role in this. All I will say for today though to kick this mini series off is that the biggest thing is convincing people they have these needs. A lot of people will not get involved in anything else because they do not think they can afford to give up any more time. When in fact they can't afford not to be a part of this part of the ministry. You have to sell the importance of meeting together and the fact that the sacrifice of their time is worth it.
