ReThinking Our Goals

Goals typically beat us. We don’t beat them.

Though Matt Cutts isn’t a small groups pastor, the principles he shares are applicable to us in the small groups world.

When it comes to achieving our goals, we should start thinking bite-sized, not elephant-sized meals.

Want to launch some new groups in 2013? Do a 30 day campaign and launch them in a month. (make sure to read Steve Gladen’s Small Groups with Purpose and Leading Small Groups with Purpose ) Because anybody can do anything for 30 days, right?

Want to try out a new coaching model? Give it a 30 day run.

Want to raise the value of small groups for your church? Plan out a 30-day window of promotion, hitting stage announcements, social media, and word-of-mouth.

Want to recruit a crazy amount of new leaders? Meet with a leader a day for 30 days.
