I recently had the pleasure of listening to Carl George speak on Small Group development.  Here are some questions that might help you in your quest to develop Small Groups that experience authentic community. 

What is God doing among the people in your group?  What are the challenges your members are facing?  How is the group helping them with these challenges?  What challenges are you facing as you help these people minister?  What are you trying to do, really?  How are you getting in the way of what you want to happen?


We all strive to be the best Small Group leaders possible.  Sometimes a little glance into our group or our self with these questions may take us to a new level of ‘best’.  What do you think?
