Ronnie Parrott - Is there a difference between Sunday School and small groups? Aren’t they both the same? Don’t they both accomplish the same purpose? The answers to these questions are often determined by the discipleship strategy of each individual local church. However, many churches have a traditional Sunday School model without a clear discipleship strategy in place. With the continued secularization of American culture, churches must define their discipleship strategy, equip and train effective leaders, and move their Sunday School beyond Bible intake and into life-on-life discipleship. The goal of this breakout is to help pastors and leaders determine, define and implement a successful strategy for making disciples through small groups.
Sometimes in our Bible study groups, we get so busy doing good things that we abandon the best thing — love for Jesus. Discover practical principles on returning to your first love.
