As part of our SDA Meeting on Thursday, December 7th, we are going to share a 40-45 minute segment with Tyler Allred and Gabby Manriquez about Small Groups.
Small Groups, by whatever name we call them, are the life-blood of any church. Effective small groups create incredible churches, and they can often be the engine for evangelism, discipling, training missional leaders and multiplying missional communities. (Does any of that sound familiar?)
Both Tyler and Gabby have been very effectively involved in Small Group initiation and development through InterVarsity Christian Fellowship. IV Small Groups in North County San Diego InterVarsity have exploded, and the story has wonderful transfer value for us as churches.
Very importantly, Tyler has written and published a really dynamic Small Groups booklet which is Anglican, through and through. He'll be showing it to us on Thursday and explaining how all of us could use it to our benefit. One of our churches is already doing so!
