Cultivating Relationships and Spiritual Growth: Small groups. Growth groups. Mini-churches. Community groups. Cell groups. Accountability groups. Home groups. Missional communities. Mini-flocks. No matter what you call them, most churches of any size highlight the importance of meeting together in smaller communities within the local church. But how necessary are small groups? What are their purpose(s)? What makes a good group? How does spiritual formation happen in the context of a small group? This session will explore these questions to equip leaders, as well as group participants, to be more faithful and effective small group members. Click here to download the outline for this session.
