HERE’S WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT IN THE BRAND NEW SMALL GROUPS COACHING NETWORK
Session 1: FOCUS & THINK FROM THE INSIDE OUT
We begin the network by talking about how to begin planning in advance. 3 months before the small groups begin – your team takes time to evaluate the current and previous small group semesters, create a calendar and ask list and set goals for the upcoming small group semester. We also focus on the BIG IDEA of targeting people who are on the periphery of your church and not yet connected.
Session 2: FORM & THINK LARGER
In Session 2 we will explore how to make the BIG ASK of potential small group leaders and what it takes to get a group confirmed for people to begin signing up. We’ll also look at the BIG IDEA of why the best groups have 12-15 people attending every week. And that’s why you should let 18-20 people sign up for each group. You’ll get a lot out of this session!
Session 3: FILL & THINK SHORT-TERM
In Session 3 we will talk about fundamentals of getting people to sign up for small groups on Sunday and on-line. And…we’ll tell you the biggest mistakes churches make that limit their small group sign ups. We’ll also explain why semester-based small groups get more sign ups, create more excitement and participation and ultimately lead to more relationships and spiritual growth than the traditional model of on-going small groups.
Session 4: FACILITATE & PROMOTION MONTHS
In this session Kerrick will share with you The Journey’s philosophy of “as-you-go” training for small group leaders that is based on an apprentice-model. And we’ll show you how we lead effective two and a half hour small group leader trainings before each semester begins. And this month’s BIG IDEA will focus on how you get more people signed up for groups by having everyone sign up at once during a focused and frenzied Promotion Month than if you allow people to sign up every week of the year. The truth of this one will surprise you!
Session 5: FOCUS & THINK EASY (One Step Easy)
In Session #5 we begin our second semester of small groups together – so the training goes to a deeper level. We focus on how to set attendance goals, small group sign up goals, goals for the number of groups, goals for the number of group leaders and team leaders. And we’ll also discuss how to make your sign-up process stream-lined and smooth and eliminate unnecessary steps that might be keeping people from signing up for your small groups.
Session 6: FORM & THINK AHEAD
In this session Kerrick will talk about how to form groups for the best chance of success. We’ll talk about different types of groups (age-based, activity-based, community service, men’s and women’s, etc.) and how to set up your small group leaders for success by helping them choose the best time, location and topic. We’ll also explore how getting on the semester-based system allows you to think ahead so you can lower your stress, work smarter and be more creative in your small group promotion and implementation.
Session 7: FILL & THINK FULL STAFF PARTICPATION
In Session #7 Kerrick will lead you through some creative and cutting-edge ideas of how to promote your small groups on Sunday, online and through email so that you can get the most possible people plugged-in and growing. In addition – Kerrick will talk through how the most effective small group systems are not lead by just one staff person – but how everyone on staff has a small group responsibility and has “skin in the game.”
Session 8: FACILITATE & THINK LEADER MULTIPLICATION
In our final online session together Kerrick will talk about how you train your leaders on an on-going basis even after the small groups semester has begun. We will also share some of the secrets of leader retention and the most important things a small group leader needs to do during the first two weeks of their group to make sure the group is successful. We’ll also share some important and simple steps to help you identify and recruit new leaders every semester. Every semester at least 25% of Journey’s small group leaders are first-time leaders. We’ll explore how in Session #8!
