On this episode of Group Answers, Brian and Chris identify five types of leaders to look for, including visionary leaders who have a clear vision and inspire others, relational leaders who build community, organizational leaders who keep things running smoothly, discipler leaders who guide others in their spiritual growth, and innovative leaders who bring fresh ideas and approaches. By finding leaders who possess these qualities, small groups can thrive and help members grow in their faith.
