New Year's Resolutions for Small Group Leaders

I don't do New Year's resolutions. Why bother, when you either think you're perfect already or that you’ll fail by March? That said, I’m going to give it the old college try.

And if you're perfect already, you know everyone in your small group isn't, so read on!

I've been involved in small group ministry for about 15 years. I've led them, attended them, and run from them. Many times, people attend small groups out of religious duty or because they feel it's what they're supposed to do to be more spiritual. But even more times, they are really trying to make it work because they long for more connection than a few minutes during the church worship service.
