Most new Small Group Leaders often begin to question their ability to be a “Leader.” This usually begins with a feeling of simply being overwhelmed. Well, here’s good news – that’s not unusual, it’s natural. Here’s even better news – that doesn’t mean that you’re not cut out to be a Leader, nor does it necessarily mean God hasn’t called you into this role. So, what do you do about it?
Well, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the first thing you should do is pray about it. God always hears our prayers, and He always answers (even if we don’t like the answer we do/don’t get). The fear you may be feeling usually comes out of uncertainty, especially for those new to Small Groups or those who haven’t had the benefit of being led by another good Leader. Pray that God will lead you and equip you. We’ll help! With a large amount of reliance on the Holy Spirit and a little bit of preparation and training, you can do this!
We’re trying to do our part in this too as we all Grow Together. Listen up for upcoming Small Group Leader “Huddles” – where we (the Leaders and Small Group Coaches) will share ideas and learn how to navigate this journey… Together.
