A lot of churches and youth ministries have given up on the idea of small groups, writing them off as too tedious, too difficult to manage, too hard to find volunteers for, too expensive to provide materials or curriculum for, or any other number of reasons. In A Volunteer Youth Worker’s Guide to Leading a Small Group, Mark Oestreicher argues a different perspective. Marko insists that small groups promote safe spaces to grow, consistency in teenagers’ emotionally tumultuous lives, and repetition that instills in them the importance of trust and tradition. The Guide to Leading a Small Group is perfect for anyone feeling disenchanted with the concept of small groups, and after Marko succeeds in changing your mind in the first few pages, he’ll use the rest of the book to help you restructure and rethink your small-group programming so you don’t get burned out again. Marko is leading the charge in reviving small groups, and you can join him today.

  1. David

    It’s tough to find resources that I can hand to a volunteer and feel confident that they’re getting both the big picture AND solid tips. So many other options for small group leaders are either too long or are simply lists of tips and tricks. This guide goes from big picture to small detail and does so in a brief, approachable, easy-to-read manner. Looking forward to the discussions we’ll have on this in the months ahead.
