Jesus’ Leadership Order


Jesus started his church by calling a few normal, workaday guys to follow him, and then he made a remarkable statement. He told these unschooled, unspectacular, blue-collar guys that he’d turn them into leaders who would make an eternal difference in people’s lives (see Matt. 4:18-20) and ultimately the world.

Is It Well with YOUR Soul?


Soul

As a shepherd leader, you are undoubtedly concerned about those you lead. You care about their souls. You pay attention to their spiritual conditions and want to lead them deeper with God.

Choices

I just read an interesting article by Eric Geiger at LifeWay. In essence, the article says that most small group leaders are given no direction in what their groups study. Read the article HERE.

How to Kill an Unhealthy Small Group


Stethoscope

How do you kill an unhealthy group? I’ve been asked this question a number of times, but I believe it begins with a faulty premise. Yes, some small groups are unhealthy, but that doesn’t warrant killing them off. Several years ago, my friend Brian Jones wrote a blog post, “Why Churches Should Euthanize Small Groups.” Many churches have lowered the …

How can we help you most in your ministry?” If I were to sum up their typical response in one line, it would sound something like an old Carpenter’s song: “What a leader needs now … is love, sweet …
