What is your strategy for successful small groups?
Small groups are an important part of our YM and our church, so I'm hoping to get some input on the following questions regarding what has (or hasn't) worked for you:
Which works best for you and why: on campus groups or off campus groups?
In terms of curriculum, do you choose curriculum for groups, let leaders choose, or a mix of the two?
For those who do off-campus groups throughout the week, what has helped you communicate vision to your leaders and participants, since not everyone meets in one place?
Have you ever done an apprentice program where older students (seniors) help lead a freshmen or sophomore group with a couple of adults?
I'm just looking for your experiences here, so don't feel like you need to be an expert to answer!
