Introducing the new Blog

small-group-dynamics1Sam O’Neal, managing editor of has announced the introduction of a new blog for small group leaders. The blog will supplement the content of the rest of the site and will be aimed specifically at lay small group leaders.

Sam says of the blog:

First, the content on the blog will be specifically targeted to help small-group leaders. I am a big fan of small-groups pastors, coaches, directors, shepherds, and all the other names people have for the “upper echelon” of small-group leadership in a church. But I want this blog to provide maximum benefit to the people who are in the trenches of small groups every week. (And if we succeed in helping group leaders grow, I think pastors and directors and coaches will be pretty happy with us.)

Second, I’m very excited about a new feature we’re introducing on the blog called Dot Com(unity). I know the name conjures up ideas of “virtual small groups” a little bit, but that is not the direction of this tool. Dot Com(unity) is an interactive co-learning experience for small-group leaders. The basic idea is to get a lot of small groups around the world to study the same curriculum at the same time.

As they encounter a new session each week, the leaders of those groups will have an opportunity to talk with each other through the blog–to share what is working well, what is frustrating, to ask questions about theological issues or group dynamics. In other words, it’s a chance for group leaders to have an extended network of co-leaders that can help each other in a real way because they are all experiencing the same issues and ideas.

Check out our introductory post on Dot Com(unity) and let us know what you think.
