Small Groups: Coaching the Call

How do you build that passion? By convincing the person making the call that we serve a passionate God who emphatically wants us all in community with one another. Share a powerful story of someone’s life before and after joining a group. Remind them of how the group of believers in the Book of Acts set fire to the world with God’s love through community. Find the ‘hot button’ topic of the person making the call, and show them how groups improves that area of life. In essence, make them a believer so they make those who hear them believe as well.

While dotting the “I”s and crossing the “T”s of your groups campaign or event is of great importance, how the call for it is delivered to the church will have a far greater impact on its ultimate success or failure.

For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them. (Matthew 18:20)
