Small-group covenants (sometimes referred to as guidelines or agreements) are an important part of community ministry. They help group members understand exactly what will happen in the life of a group, and they provide a tangible symbol of commitment to the group's core values and standards of behavior. But they can be annoying to write up. That's why Smallgroups.com has assembled eight different sample covenants in this Best Church Practices resource. As a group leader, you can choose the one that best fits your group and adapt it to your specific needs. Click the link below to view this resource online.
