You know, a discussion group, a Bible study, a book club, any informal gathering, where, say, one person did all the talking? Where conversation stayed entirely superficial? Where you never got past the first point, or, conversely, where you skimmed over things too quickly in order to cover too many points and you didn’t get to ponder and digest concepts?
Help is available! Entrust’s Facilitating Relational Learning (FRL) gives you tools and training to guide small groups with excellence. Hours of advance homework followed by observing great leadership in practice, then trying it yourself several times during one of our intensive trainings, result in entirely transformed small group leaders.
“I just wanted you to know that you’ve ruined me for life on attending community groups.
