If you are just beginning large group meetings here are some suggestions on how to avoid organizational overload:
- If you have 2-3 small groups, have them rotate taking responsibility for each of the large group meetings. This will give the small group a common service project. They will grow together as they plan and lead and serve the larger fellowship.
- Divide the various responsibilities of each large group meeting among the various small groups (one small group responsible for major teaching, one responsible for music, another for publicity, etc.)
- Have monthly or twice-monthly large group meetings instead of every week until you have more leadership resources.
- Have a campus volunteer take responsibility for the organizational planning of large group meetings, with students still taking up-front leadership.
- Host community-wide large group meetings if there are other schools nearby. Chapters could rotate sponsoring one of these large group meetings (or InterVarsity Rallies).
- Ask a staff member, faculty, or pastor to teach a whole series of meetings on a topic or exposition of a portion of Scripture. This will simplify the task of setting up speakers each week.
