Albert Einstein once said, “everything must be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.” When it comes to designing and implementing systems for your church’s Small Groups Ministry, you’d be hard pressed to find truer words spoken. Whether you’re a groups ministry veteran or brand new to the groups world, the constant challenge at every level of your ministry will not necessarily be “what” you do, but “how” you do it. Small Groups systems and strategies are not one-size-fits-all, and having a balanced perspective on how your church does groups is crucial to a healthy ministry.
In this month’s Group Talk, Carolyn Taketa talks with Will Johnston about understanding small groups systems, determining the best fit for your church and why that is important.
Will Johnston is an author, speaker, and consultant on small group ministry, specializing in building and troubleshooting small group systems. He previously served as the groups pastor at National Community Church, a multi-site congregation in Washington DC. You can connect with Will at willfjohnston.com and on Twitter @willjohnston.
