Sow Small Groups
“Now I understand why the church kids were not great at talking with the non-church kids”. This was a comment earlier this year from a teen who attended a Youth Alpha small group training session in Chicago!
How did Jesus Christ interact with people? Are we reflecting His example in our small groups?
During our time together we will share why Youth Alpha small groups have been effective at sowing the seeds of God’s word into teens’ lives. We will highlight tips to:
• facilitate authentic Christ-like discussion
• build trust
• ‘listen’ people into the Kingdom
• ask questions
• and ultimately, engage teens in a loving, Holy-Spirit led process that draws them closer to Jesus Christ.
