Small Groups

What does scripture say about spiritual Growth through small groups?
Women’s and children’s ministries flourish in practically every U.S. congregation, but few churches are able to establish or maintain a vibrant men’s ministry. For example, there are 35,000 United Methodist congregations in the U.S. but only 6,000 offer a chapter of the United Methodist Men’s Organization.
“Everybody” does men’s breakfasts. In fact, when asking about men’s ministry in churches, most leaders point to men’s breakfasts. In reality men’s breakfasts can be a create point, a capture point or as we shall see, a sustaining activity.
Why? It is clear from the Gospels that Jesus spent a great deal of time mentoring and coaching His disciples. It is also clear that He had an especially close relationship with three of these men: Peter, James, and John.
