Monica Lee: This Is How I Small Group

Q: Would you describe yourself as more of a processes person, or strategy/ideas person, or something else?

A: Tough question. Because of my background, I really am both—split straight down the middle. So, I try to leave our processes to my incredible admin/coordinator team and focus on strategy and ideas. Our processes are in great hands with them!

Q: Are you currently in a small group, and if so, what makes your small group unique?

A: I am. My husband and I lead a group for married couples. We study our message-based curriculum and take our weekend messages to a deeper place of discussion and application. We didn’t plan it this way, but it is a multi-generational group, and every couple represents a different decade. It is refreshing and fun to have different perspectives, zeal, and wisdom!

Q: In your time in your role, what are you most proud of?

A: The deep and wide growth/discipleship model that has been built.

Q: If you could offer someone starting day one as a small group point person, 1 piece of advice, what would it be?

A: Can I give two?

1. Align your ministry with your church’s mission and values.

2. Invest, invest, invest.

Q: Who would you most like to see answer these questions (either because you want to know what they have to say or because you think everyone else should hear what they have to say)?

A: Allen White, Andrew Mason, and Micah Odor.
