This kickoff training video was originally part of the 12 Conference--an online conference to help train small group leaders. And while there may be a reference to “this event” here or a “broadcast at your church” there, it is still incredibly valuable tool to help your small group leaders grow in their basic leadership skills.
This lesson focuses on the “why of small groups” and how to help them start strong. While it might not be youth ministry specific, there’s a lot of good content in it for a good youth ministry training event (or just for you).
Steve Gladen is the host of this video—he has written multiple books on small groups while pastoring the small group team at Saddleback Church.
