We started our first small group with 4 of us meeting at each others homes once a week. We found that having a set day to meet each week made it much easier for us to schedule our week. We have now grow to 12 of us meeting the same day each week. We started with the Joseph story set, which is a 9 week story set covering Josephs life from being thrown into a well to becoming second in power in Egypt.
Storying is a simple concept that can be used in any setting. The basic idea is to read the verses daily so that you will be able to retell the story as best you can. According to the U.S. Department of Education and the National Institute of Literacy 32 million adults in the U.S. can not read.
Storying will allow us to share God’s word with everyone that is interested in learning more. It is also an amazing way to spend time getting to know God and learning directly through God’s word.
Latest doesn’t mean greatest. Just because a videographer is constantly updating to all the latest and most expensive technologies, that doesn’t mean his stories will be that much more impactful. In fact, sometimes the simplest way to do something is the best way to do it. Create things that move people’s emotions rather than wow their intellects.
To date we have reached 4410 small group leaders with this simple concept of discipleship. Matthew 28: 18-20 tells us there are no pre-requesites for creating disciples or being a disicple. Having Jesus in our heart guiding our steps is all we need to reach and grow with others. Need some help getting started, just send us an email and we will be more than happy to help you get started.
