- You will learn how to form groups that will continue as on-going learning communities.
If you've spend any time at all starting groups, you know it's very time consuming and the last thing you want is to see all of those groups disappear. Whether you've launched groups with a church-wide campaign or for a semester, the end of the study or semester usually means groups stopping. In this course, you will learn to overcome the obstacles and give the right incentives to get your groups to continue. You'll never get 100 percent of groups to move forward, but you should see at least 80 percent of them continue. These keys will help you get there.
- Anyone who uses groups as learning environments: teachers, pastors, small group directors, leaders, and others.
The First Key to Lasting Groups focuses on how groups are formed. Groups of friends tend to last longer than groups of strangers. While many task-oriented, passive approaches to group formation may seem to be efficient, they are not effective in establishing on-going relationally-based groups. How the group is formed will largely determine the likelihood of the group continuing.
Where do group leaders get the idea that at the end of a six-week commitment that they're done? Sounds like a stupid question, huh? But, when you get down to it, once they've fulfilled their commitment, why shouldn't they be done? If you want your groups to continue, you need to follow Key #3 and offer them a next step.
