Course Introduction

Course Introduction

We all desire community! We all desire to be known and loved by a small group of people. However, when we think of starting a small group, we imagine the worst. Awkward silences, people looking at the door, shuffling in their seats, and eventually never coming back. This doesn’t have to be your story! Fostering a small group is the best method of discipleship. It has a dramatic impact on people’s lives, relationships, and faith. This course aims to give you the tools to confidently step out and lead these small groups without fear, awkwardness, or failure.

Let Lisa guide you through the step by step process of building a small group that draws people in, leads to transformation, and goes the distance.
