It’s one thing to value small groups. But what if your church culture works against the very thing you’re trying to accomplish?
This week I’m excited to be speaking at the Orange Conference in Atlanta Georgia.
As a way of serving those who attend my talks I’ll be posting the outline to each session here on the blog.
Even if you don’t attend the conference, I hope you can glean a few insights from them that might help you lead better now. And if you’re in the session, you won’t have to guess what that pesky blank you forgot to fill in was all about.
This talk is based on a brand new book, Creating a Lead Small Culture by Reggie Joiner, Kristen Ivy and Elle Campbell. It’s a must-buy, and the ideas below are completely fleshed out in the book.
So here’s the outline for my talk on how to creates a lead small culture at your church.
