Being a group leader can be a challenge. It takes time, energy, and know-how. We can’t help you with the first two, but we do have a treasure trove of knowledge available to help you in your ministry. It’s a collection of free resources that includes books, Bible studies and excerpts, and links to informative blogs and podcasts. It’s our way of showing support for everything you do.
Teacher: Creating Conversational Community
Help church leaders train volunteers who lead a Sunday School class or small Bible study group.
Gospel-Centered Small Groups
In this helpful book, Michael Kelley and Chris Surratt discuss five key areas of small group life: hospitality, authenticity, service, mission, and Bible study. These characteristics are not only essential to group life, but they all naturally flow from a deep understanding of the gospel of Jesus.
Leader: Creating Commissioned Communities
In this booklet, you will look at practices, principles, and perspectives that are foundational for a group to establish, reestablish, or maintain a focus on outreach and evangelism.
Saddle Up: Leading with Purpose, Posture, and Preparedness
Leaders are called upon to be shaped by the truths they encounter and then pass those truths on to others, with God working in and through leaders. This 64-page booklet is designed to help church leaders train volunteers and group members of a Sunday School class or small Bible study group.
Creating a Discipleship Pathway
Creating a Discipleship Pathway outlines the eight disciplines or “signposts” that believers exhibit in an ever-increasing way as they walk with Jesus. But it will also help you clearly and simply articulate a vision for a pathway of discipleship for the people in your church or group.
Seven Realities of Experiencing God
Seven Realities for Experiencing God examines seven scriptural realities—those Moses experienced in Exodus 3—that teach believers how to develop an obedient love relationship with God. This eight-session study overviews the seven realities and then, session by session, explores truths like “God is always at work around you” to introduce a biblical pattern by which God reveals His will so that believers can join His activity in the world.
