Return of the Small Group Leadership Blog

Reader, forgive me. It’s been 7 months since my last blog post. (If you grew up Catholic, as I did, I’m sure that first line has a familiar ring to it.) So . . . where have I been? As I wrote in a blog post back in June 2017, I became editor of Christian Standard magazine a little more …

How Can My Group(s) Do What Jesus’ Group Did? (Is That Even Possible?)


Your small group can do what Jesus' did - Change the World!

The back cover of World’s Greatest Small Group features this audacious claim: Your small group can do what Jesus’ did: Change the World! I wouldn’t make such a claim if I didn’t believe it’s possible. But I believe not only that it’s possible, but that it’s exactly what Jesus wants to happen. It’s what he said will happen. It’s what …
