Whether you’ve just stepped up to serve in Switch or have been serving for a while now, it’s normal to wonder how to begin your small group time. But what if there were a simple formula to minimize your awkwardness and maximize your time together? There is, and it’s easier than you might think.
Here are three simple ways you can start opening up and building trust in a Switch group.
So, as Switch leaders, it’s our job to help create a comfortable group environment where your students feel needed and known. And making a student feel needed and known starts with letting them get to know you. Then, we take an interest in them. Finally, we provide value and establish influence by connecting what they learned through the message with what’s going on in their lives.
Keep these tips in mind as you begin the year, and then expand on them as your group grows and develops. You’ve got everything you need to lead these students well, so embrace these tips and lead on, leader!
