Guidelines for Leading Your Congregation 2009-2012 - Small Group Ministries

Where Two or Three Are Gathered . . .
$2.95

“The mission of the Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ. Local churches provide the most significant arena through which disciple-making occurs” (The Book of Discipline of The United Methodist Church, 2008, ¶120.

Small Group Ministries

All small groups in the local church are, or could be, places of faith formation and disciple making. By offering a more intimate setting, small groups of every kind are uniquely able to welcome and nurture people in the church and in the faith. Look for this and more:

  • A biblical/theological basis for small group ministry
  • Understanding small groups and small group ministry
  • Assessing existing groups and planning for new groups
  • Equipping and nurturing small group leaders
  • The start up, implementation, and nurture stages of groups
  • Ending groups with dignity

The twenty-six Guidelines cover church leadership areas including Church Council and Small Membership Church, the administrative areas of Finance and Trustees, and ministry areas focused on nurture, outreach, and witness including Worship, Evangelism, Stewardship, and Christian Education, age-level ministries, Communications, and more.
