Church-wide Campaigns are Trial Runs for Potential Leaders

By Allen WhiteOne of the primary purposes of an alignment series or church-wide campaign is recruiting potentialgroup leaders for a trial run. The other primary purpose plays into the first one – engaging the senior pastor to recruit potential group leaders. When the sermon series is linked to the small group study or even better, the pastor’s teaching is the basis of the small group study, the pastor will be more interested in groups. When pastors make the investment in creating small group…See More

Host homes and campaigns are great to get groups going, but not so great…See More
