Small Groups Key To Spiritual Growth

By Polly House

Genuine personal transformation best takes place in a small-group setting. People rarely change in large groups because large groups don't offer opportunities for intimate relationships with others.

That was the message of the inaugural 4G conference sponsored by LifeWay Christian Resources at LifeWay Ridgecrest Conference Center July 23-26.

The conference focused on four groups in the local church -- Sunday School groups, small groups, discipleship groups and missional groups -- and how each of them offers something different to its members. One person might belong to any or all of these groups at any given time.

Conference attendees had the opportunity to learn from various experts specializing in each of the group types.


Until next time...share the journey and enjoy the ride!
