SPECIALIZED
SMALL GROUP TRAINING

We Offer Two Unique Small Group Training Tracks

Small Group Point Person Track

Align is an online training course that will help you, the Small Group Point Person (SGPP - the church leader who oversees the small group ministry) learn the small group ministry essentials. Small groups are not a program of your church, they are your church! Too often the church misses the purpose it was designed for - to changed lives. In this course you (SGPP) will learn how to align your small group ministry to your church’s vision and mission. You will learn the basics of why small groups matter, what systems are needed, how to design a strategy, what is needed in your small group ministry structure and what your next steps for success will be.
Pre-requisite: for the maximum experience, we recommend you take the "Align" course first.

The “Accelerate!” small group workshop is available both as an online training course (Coming soon) and as a live event in specific regions - see event calendar below.

Accelerate will help you (the Small Group Point Person - SGPP) & your leadership team build a 12 to 18-month strategic plan for your small group ministry by going through the 20 key questions every SGPP needs to know. You will finish the workshop with goals that are prioritized, calendarized and a strategic plan in your hand, as we provide time for you to build the plan. With that said, working through this with your team will be the most beneficial.

See the event calendar below to register for a live event. To bring “Accelerate!” to your church and bless your region, email our events director below.
Located at Saddleback Church's stunning Rancho Capistrano Retreat Center, the “Lobby Gathering” is an out-of-the-box small group networking event where we create environments for small group point people (SGPP) to relax & connect together in casual conversations about small group ministry, much like they would in a church lobby over a cup of coffee! Whether you are a beginner or a veteran SGPP, you will have an equal voice in each circle of conversation. You will also get to hear and learn from some of the brightest SGPP from around the world. See the event calendar below to register!

Small Groups Leader Track

Coming soon!

Attain is an online training course that will help your Small Group Leaders to set their small group up for Biblical success. This course will establish a foundation for small group leaders and their members in four critical areas; discovering their essentials, determining their path, developing their leadership and deepening their heart.

Pre-requisite: for the maximum experience, we recommend you take the "Attain" course first.

Advance is a one day bootcamp in the small group basics. Designed for both Small Group Leaders and their Small Group Point Person (the church leader who oversees the small group ministry) to do together, these seven sessions will help you set the foundation of your small group ministry and help your small group leaders to walk away with a personal spiritual health plan and a small group health plan for their small group. Small Group Leaders will leave with an understanding of how to build into their small group: authentic fellowship, doable discipleship, mobilizing members, reaching non-believers and sacrificial worship. See the event calendar below to register!

To bring "Advance" to your church and bless your region, email our events director below.
