Episode 32: Alternatives to Small Groups

Leading change, the root of an issue, and small groups.

In Episode 32 of the New Churches Q&A Podcast, we address a church who is looking for an alternative to small groups. Here is Chris Moore’s question:

What would you say to a church that has already tried small groups, but didn’t find that they worked well? What else could they try?

In this episode, you’ll discover:

  • The different alternatives to small groups that exist
  • The “Why?” behind small groups
  • The power of assumptions that affect a change process

Shareable Quotes (#NewChurchesQA):

  • “Small groups help people live out their faith in Christ in their community, where they live, work, and play.”
  • “You can’t commute to community.”
  • “It’s important to help your church be in community and on mission with one another.”
  • “There’s a third that’s always ready for change, there’s a third that is negative towards change, and there’s a third that waits to see what happens.”
