Doctrinal Impurity in Small Groups


Today: Proverbs 14 As a “small groups guy,” people often try to suck me into a debate about doctrinal impurity that may come about in a small group discussion. In a recent discussion on a Facebook forum, one leader said, “Without the right leadership you end up with far too much ‘I think’ or ‘what this means to me’ and …

WANTED: Wise Leadership! Proverbs 11


Today: Proverbs 11  Without wise leadership, a nation falls; with many counselors, there is safety (Proverbs 11:14, NLT).  As we head toward Election Day in the United States, this proverb has never been more vital!

The Purposely UNbalanced Small Group


Yesterday, I posted about being Purposely UNbalanced in life. I’ve found that it’s impossible to be truly balanced in ministry as well, especially when it comes to leading a small group. As I’ve often said, leading a healthy group is much like riding a mountain bike. The only time I’m close to being perfectly balanced is when I’m standing still, …

Healthy small group leaders are friends with non-Christ-followers


The attributes for healthy small group leaders includes many things. One that is not usually on the list but that I believe is vital is that they intentionally build and invest into friendships with folks who do not yet have a relationship with Christ.

How to Include and Love People with Special Needs in Small Groups


Special Needs Love

I received the following question from a fellow small groups director. It’s a great question and one most small group leaders have dealt with or will deal with. How do you handle special needs or even just very socially awkward (haven’t necessarily been diagnosed) adults in groups?  Our young adults group is doing great, but recently they’ve had many requests …

Good Seeds, Bad Seeds


You reap what you sow. This leadership principle is so pervasive throughout the Bible. I came across it again today in Hosea 10. The prophet said: Plant the good seeds of righteousness, and you will harvest a crop of my love. Plow up the hard ground of your hearts, for now is the time to seek the Lord, that he may come …

Don’t Point Fingers, Leader


Did you know that as a spiritual leader, God will hold you accountable for the spiritual condition of the people you lead? You are a steward of the leadership responsibilities and the people He has entrusted to you (1 Peter 5:2, 3) and you and I will someday give an account to Him (Matthew 25:19; see vv. 14-30 for the …
