Free Live Webcast – 6 Big Ideas for Effective Online Groups

Now during the pandemic, small groups are even more important to keep people connected to the church, to their faith and to each other.

At The Journey, we’ve seen great success with moving small groups online — and we want to share these proven best practices with you! Join us THIS Thursday, July 16 for a brand new online training:

Thursday, July 16th — LIVE from 11:00am to Noon Eastern
FREE when you RSVP today — just click here to sign up! 

You’ll discover how easy it can be to make the switch to online groups. Discover the most important things you need to know to get started — and see high participation and great life change come from your online groups!

In this brand new webcast, you will learn:

  • The top 3 barriers to people signing up for an online small group (plus strategies to overcome them!)
  • Easy ideas to increase the “show-up” rate for your online groups.
  • What to do the first 5 minutes and the last 5 minutes of each group to make online seem personal.
  • How to solve the technology challenge…do we use Zoom or something else, how do I train people to do online groups, what about those who can’t figure out video conferencing?
  • Why every online group should have a coordinator (and what that is) or co-leaders!
  • Creative ways to promote online groups . . . and how to make it easy for people to sign up.
  • How to effectively train your small group leaders to lead online (and why if you do this right — they might want to lead online every time).
  • The optimal size and time limit for online small groups (it might not be what you expect!)
  • Plus bonuses, stupid jokes and more actionable lessons packed in 60 minutes than you’ll find anywhere else (we promise!)

I encourage you to share this with your staff and key volunteers — have an online watch party with them. You can all watch separately at the same time and then have discussion afterwards. The more the merrier!
