At the two month mark following the reorganization, the most important role in these small group leadership teams turned out to be the Party Leader! These leaders were responsible for attracting more new members to join small groups than any other factor. The staff points out that the Group Coordinator has become the most influential factor in maintaining a growing and thriving small group.
Along with the change in structure and purpose came a renaming of Sunday school to “Small Groups,” but the occasion and location remained the same. Small Groups meet on Sunday mornings at Vandalia First Baptist Church.
