Where Should We Meet?

  • Keep in mind where your courses meet sends a message about what you are trying to do
  • You don’t need to meet at church but it is perfectly alright if you do
  • Pick a space that facilitates good conversation
  • Homes of participants are great places to facilitate the course; is a they can be a useful aid in building community and group cohesion
  • Generally makes it easier for the participants if the course meets in the same location for the 4 weeks
  • Public places such as coffee shops, pubs and diners are great for some courses as you will be helping participants become accustomed to speaking about Christ openly and in public
  • Public spaces will have some drawbacks for other courses particularly when modeling some small group worship and prayer practices
  • Be brave and creative- experiment with working on discipleship in different places
