Small-Group Host Orientation Guide

February 5, 2009 | Comments Off on Small-Group Host Orientation Guide

Couple at doorOne of the small group challenges that we don’t talk about a lot is the role of the host and/or hostess. But if you’ve been a group leader for long, you know that the meeting setting and ambiance can be critical to the success of the group. It’s easy to take this role for granted – until something doesn’t go quite right. Then we realize the critical role of the host. Christianity Today’s has just released a Small Group Host Orientation Guide.

This is a compilation of nine articles on this crucial leadership role, written by Tom Bandy , Vaughn and Jaime Stoll, Jon Ferguson, Mike Mack, Rick Howerton, Heather Zempel, Reid Smith, and me. These articles discuss space, atmosphere, seating, refreshments, childcare, temperature, telephones, pets, aromas, and much more. Articles are short and reproducible. You can make copies for your hosts and potential hosts, year after year. And best of all, the download is free to members. If your group is lacking in the hospitality area, this download is for you.
