every small group is DIFFERENT

I promise...every small group you lead will be different. Even if you lead the same group of kids or teenagers, next year they will be different. (It's called growing older!) Small group leaders need enough structure to help their group gain forward motion but enough freedom to allow small group leaders to create the right kind of environment for the students they lead. Last week one of our high school small group leaders brought me a small group covenant for me to check out that she wanted to give to her small group. I never asked her to make this and we don't have a standard form for our student groups. I checked it and thanked her for creating a healthy environment for her group of girls. Every small group is different. We need to make sure we are giving our small group leaders enough freedom to take their small group to the next level in our kid and student environments.
