GroupLife Southwest

GroupLife Southwest features a powerful lineup of trusted small group ministry experts and leading practitioners.

From beginning to end GroupLife Southwest is about grouplife in the 21st century. If you’ve been paying attention, it is no secret that the culture is rapidly shifting. What worked in the 80s and 90s, when modern small group ministry began, doesn’t always translate in 2016. When you simply look around you’re probably noticing that the solutions to the problems posed in decades past are often irrelevant…because today’s problems are different.

Think about how even the questions might need to be different:

  • How can we connect unconnected people…when even our regular attenders attend once or twice a month?

  • How can we make genuine disciples…when biblical illiteracy is growing steadily?

  • Where can we find enough group leaders…when commitment decreases on a daily basis?

  • Who can join a “couples” group? Do you have to be married? What about same sex couples?
