In the years I have served a small group facilitator and small groups pastor, these are some of the most common questions I’ve received about how to facilitate and lead a healthy small group. Hopefully they help you as you seek to facilitate a small group and help people grow in their relationship with God.

HOW DO I FIND PEOPLE FOR MY SMALL GROUP?
First, pray that God would lead you to people who need to be part of your small group. Second, think through these five categories of people in your life that might benefit from your small group: family (immediate or extended); friends (neighbors, kids, sports, school); factory/firm (work, professional areas), fun (gym, hobbies/hangouts); fellowship (church relationships).[ref]Steve Gladen, Planning Small Groups with Purpose (Grand Rapids, MI: Baker Books, 2018), 183.[/ref] The best way to grow your small group is for you and your small group to invite people that you know.
