The plan, design, and implementation of life: changing small groups at Saginaw Bay Church of Christ
Togetherness and connection is central in the intent of the Scripture. To test this idea of community, we conducted leadership training to handle every member should they decide to join one. Seven new leaders and apprentices along with a host family carried the load of creating our desired result of connecting our church membership into small groups. The author discovered the small group facilitates the ongoing process of discipleship, the small group lends itself effectively in service to the church and the wider community, and small groups need a lot of administration: a director and a coach were necessary.
