• Hi Steve Gladen

    Happy to read your blog post: The Importance of Gathering Your Small Group Leaders.

    You’re right. It’s about how we get people connected into new groups, and how we sustain existing groups.

    Your blog post gives an excellent idea how what to consider as a Church group leader.

    The most successful church leaders I know can gather people around clear, actionable values in their Churches. An example is Timothy Keller with the Redeemer Church.

    Out of the 16 points listed about gathering, my favourite is:

    Honors—shows value for what they do.

    It’s vital that the group members know and feel their role is important and cherished.

    And you’re right. No church is too small for this :-)

    I’ll share on my social networks.

    God bless!
