This “vodcast” is from a class Tim and Brian did this past summer “Small Group 101” While it was originally recorded to accommodate my absence in the case of our fourth child’s arrival (which in fact it did)–the content in this short video is the cornerstone to everything you will do in facilitating your small group.
Below are the verses I reference in the video when I mention “your handout:”
“Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful apart from me.”-John 5.4 NLT-
“Here is what I want you to do; Find a quiet, secluded place so you won’t be tempted to role-play before God. Just be there as simply and honestly as you can manage. The focus will shift from you to God, and you will begin to sense his grace.” -Matthew 6.6 MSG-
