Small group leadership skills

Challenging! Insightful! Doable! Revolutionary!

What are these women describing? Entrust’s Facilitating Relational Learning (FRL) module, which enhances a person’s small group leadership skills in ways hard to put into words. The woman who used these words took FRL in Ft. Wayne, Indiana, over two long weekends in January and February.

Facilitator Sherry Bohn says she heard the ladies say more than once, “I can do this.” They discovered FRL isn’t so difficult that it can only be done by a “professional” or specially gifted person. At the same time, women who had been in some sort of Christian ministry for decades came away with an expanded view of ministry and what God can do through them.

Check out FRL. Maybe it’s just the insightful, doable, revolutionary challenge you’ve been looking for.

Small group leadership skills

Ever been in a bad small group?

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. We just started going to one and after every other question I cringe and think, ‘Ooh, that was a leading question,’ or ‘Yikes! That was a closed question.’ You can definitely see what those questions do to discussion!” Take it from this member of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Charleston, S.C., Entrust’s FRL can revolutionize your small group leadership.

Using questions to teach

2015-16 training B“I got to see what it looks like to develop a lesson plan using questions to teach and how effective that can be. So much practical wisdom with an emphasis on getting to the hearts of the students. I gained a vision for ministry that I did not have before. I also gained tools that will help me, with the Spirit’s help, to make this vision a reality.”
– Carol R., Facilitating Relational Learning participant, Dallas, June 2015

Sounds like the start of a strange joke, right? But it isn’t.

A South Carolinian learning Greek and Hebrew in Hungarian. Meeting the Hungarian girl who would become his bride. Watching God transform a “simple” Hungarian student into a respected church leader.

It’s Monty Taylor’s story.
