We have all heard how important Small Groups are to health and growth of the church. But using these groups to track the health of your members and reach new people has been a very difficult task for many Church leaders.
For example, Tim and Jenny have a small group of couples who study the Bible together and encourage each other on Tuesday nights. They are also part of a group of Nursery Volunteers and a group called Home School Families. Tim attends a once a month Men’s Breakfast and Jenny works as a mentor to Young Mothers.
They are very involved in the life of the church it would appear. However, are they really involved? Their couples small group has not met for over three months, the Home School Group is really falling apart and they have found a replacement for their Volunteer spot in the Nursery the last two months.
So what is happening with Tim and Jenny? Most churches have no real way of tracking how effective these groups are and if their members are really involved. Churches are ahead of the curve if they even have a list of who is in which group.
