What are NextStep Small Groups?

  • A peer group discussion addressing leadership issues and barriers, and discovering ways to enhance leadership skills to effectively lead the church to fulfill its mission.

 

  • Nine sessions, meeting monthly, 2-hours each for all ministry leaders, in a safe, comfortable environment to discuss the real-world challenges you face in ministry with other leaders.

 

  • Discover your NextStep in leading the church to the preferred future God has given you as His leader for your congregation.

Here's Our Process

Commit To Lead

We help you determine the readiness of the minister to lead his church to a preferred future.

Lead Self

This process creates accountability between the minister and a catalyst to establish or enhance spiritual disciplines and increase self-awareness.

Lead Others

We encourage ministers to recognize and embrace those around him to create a powerful ministry team.

Lead Organization

This process challenges ministers to evaluate how the church is currently organized and to prepare for future opportunities.

Lead Church

We emphasize the importance of a clear mission, vision, and values while leading the church toward the preferred future.

Lead Kingdom Impact

This is a path to impact lostness beyond the church by serving needs, sharing hope, sending workers and starting new work.

Lead Ministry Leaders

We equip ministers to coach other ministers.
