Number one, many of your regular leaders will want to take the summer off. In fact, we encourage a summer break. You don’t want leaders to get burned out. And through their break, you open up the opportunity for people who have never led before to step in.
Number two, many of your potential leaders will be most interested in leading their first group during the summer. Since the atmosphere is more casual and the groups do plenty of fun activities together, summer groups are easier to lead and provide good training ground. They are the perfect initiation for brand-new small group leaders.
Remember that sweet taste of freedom that summer brought with it when you were a kid? Well, the great thing about being a church leader is that you still get a new kind of freedom each and every summer. You get the freedom to be creative, to think outside the box and try new things.
Some of the things you try will work and some won’t. That’s okay. You’ll come out of the summer heat with new ideas, new people plugged in, and huge momentum for the season to come. Summer is just around the corner! Plan now to plant, so you can reap the harvest this fall.
