What is "Sonship"?

Sonship is written and taught from a Reformed perspective, and it moves our great theological truths from our heads into the nitty gritty of life. Its perspective is life changing and practical and sets a foundation for other forms of discipleship.

Congregational Survey

I am in the process of (re)launching a small groups ministry in October in a church with 500+ members. At the moment I am working on writing a congregational survey to get a sense what the formatting and style of the small groups program should be.

Discipleship Small Group

During advisory committee sessions at Synod 2010, delegates will have times of reflection and dialogue based on Bill Hull's The Disciplemaking Pastor. I read it years ago, and now reflecting on going back to a disciplemaking mode in my life and ministry again.

How should we train our new small groups ministry coordinator?

Our church has just hired a part time ministry coordinator for small groups. We want to equip her as well as possible and have some ideas about training but wonder if there are good ideas out there. What should be on our list of things to have her experience and learn and participate in as she acclimates to the work? Courses? Seminars? Conferences? Thanks! Dave Den Haan

What material would you recommend for men's Bible study?

I'm not sure if this is the correct Forum to post this under; however I'm looking for suggestions for cirriculum/material for Men's Bible Study. Recently we had some groups do the Tony Dungy studies and they enjoyed them. I'm looking to have a few groups start up again after Easter. Any suggestions would be very helpful!

Do you have suggestions for a Small Group study to help teach some basic principles of community?

Hi All, I'm starting to look for a small group study or other resources for six-weeks that would be the starting point for a relaunch for our church's small group ministry. I'm looking for something that would help teach some basic principles of community. Got any ideas? Got anything that worked well (or not so well)? Mike

Anyone have a well thought out job description for a Small Groups Coordinator?

So, we are way behind the eight ball in giving our small groups ministry some overdue attention. While we have had a pretty vibrant number of small groups meeting together for years to study a wide range of topics, it has been sort of running without any coordinated effort or inter-action across groups. This has worked well since each group enjoyed their little circles and overall were quite good at inviting any newcomers that might be interested. But lately after some unexpected losses from illness and moving, there are groups that are struggling to feel connected. We can't count on it that...
