ORANGE 11...building intentional small groups
Small group relationships are consistent. >> kids need consistent relationships, they are in the middle of being unknown at school and someone needs to know them.
Small groups have invested leaders. >> We have to empower leaders, cast vision, and get the right leaders on the bus and in the right seats.
Small group leaders are coached >> when leaders are coached, they are cared for, encouraged, and equipped. No leader wants to do ministry alone, we all want to be on a great team.
Small group time is calculated >> What happens in or hour is just as important as having the time. We have 60 minutes, we have to maximize the time to connect, interact, worship, learn, and have fun!
Small groups find time to celebrate together. >> Fun leads to connection. Shared experiences matter!
