Small Group Ministry Coaching
Coaching Groups are designed for you and four other churches to set your God-sized goals, make strategic plans, work the plan, and celebrate wins together. Your coaching group is a 1 hour per week commitment for 12 months (but the group doesn’t meet every week).
The coaching starts with an Assessment of your church’s current ministry. We will collect some data from your members and current group leaders, then spend some time together either via teleconference or live and in-person discussing the obstacles and opportunities for your church.
Next, you and your group will meet twice a month for six months to explore best practices from the over 1,500 churches across North America that I’ve coached over the last 14 years. Prior to each meeting, you will receive an assignment to either read a chapter of Exponential Groups or Leading Healthy Groups, or watch a video presentation from either the Launching Exponential Groups course or the Coaching Exponential Groups course. Our time together in the coaching group is focused on discussing topics from recruiting new leaders to forming groups that last to coaching and training.
The third component is a monthly one-on-one call with you, me, and any of your team. The focus on these calls is finding where the best practices and your church’s ministry and culture intersect. Not every church is the same, so the strategic groups plan for your church will look different from other churches. That’s how it should be. You will have one call per month for the entire 12 months.
