Launch Your Small Group With This Start-Up Guide

Leading a small group on campus is an exhilarating, joy-filled experience, but it can also be incredibly daunting.

The Small Group Start-Up Guide is a holistic, step-by-step guide to help you plan and prepare for leading your small group. You’ll be introduced to key skills, sample activities, helpful resources, and example Bible studies that can help you with your planning. 

As you work through this guide, we pray that the Lord would expand your vision for your small group and all the people that God brings your way. And that your small group would be a loving community where people are drawn closer to each other and to Jesus, while embodying the five key ingredients of a healthy small group:

  1. God’s presence
  2. Inviting others
  3. Authentic community
  4. Healthy conflict
  5. Starts new groups

As you embark on the adventure of a lifetime, we pray that God meets you powerfully and that this Start-up Guide can help you on your journey.
