It's great when you come across some great small group curriculum. But it's even better when it's FREE.
Just came across this resource recently. I've been reading M. Scott Boren's blog lately and happened upon this gem. If you are not familiar with his two books, Missional Small Groups and one he cowrote Introducing the Missional Church, get them and read them. They are exceptionally valuable.
Here's the gem. Scott has a website of FREE stuff including video teaching via You Tube. If you have Real Player Pro and something similar with the ability to capture online video you're set to burn them to DVD for your groups. And Scott gives permission to do this.
A couple of great studies to check out are The Journey Together: Training Groups for Effective Group Life. This study is not just training for leaders but the whole group. It is an excellent study for a new group. It's similar to Zondervan's ReGroup: Training Groups to be Groups, but is more extensive. Each person brings something different, both good and bad, to the group. The Journey Together helps the whole group understand its function and dysfunctions and how to work together.
Another study goes along with the book Missional Small Groups and leads the group toward a more practical understanding and commitment to making a difference in one another's lives and their community.
Here's the link to the FREE stuff on the site. Click Here
Free awesome curriculum? Who can pass that up?
