2020 Workshop

21st Century Issues: Building Groups That Thrive


Jesus said, “Follow me,” and changed the world using 11 committed disciples who formed a small group. What principles did he use with his small group that produced such a powerful impact on the world?

- What are the secrets to getting people to form awesome groups? - What are the two keys to moving people into maturity in Christ? - Why are churches having such a hard time getting people into groups? - Why aren’t people changing and growing in their churches?

This seminar examines the fundamental principles Jesus used for effective discipleship, ideal for pastors, group leaders, and other ministry leaders.

This workshop will be presented by Bryan Hardwick, Pastor of Adult Ministries at Bayside Church Adventure Campus in Roseville, CA
