I was recently interviewed by Carolyn Taketa (@taketacarolyn) for the podcast she hosts, Group Talk.
Group Talk is a podcast that is all about leading small group ministry.
I had a wonderful time talking to Carolyn and we did a part 1 and a part 2 of this conversation. For part 1 this is what Carolyn asked:
What is the difference between small groups and support groups?
How do we care for the people in our small groups in ways that are healthy without becoming therapists for them?
How do we keep small groups on track for their intended purpose?
I was eager to share and have a thoughtful conversation with Carolyn. I lead a hybrid team that handles pastoral care and discipleship in our church. It has educated me in far more than any book could on the subject.
Take a moment to listen to the podcast and even subscribe to it. They have some fantastic guests on. I guess they took a break from the whole "fantastic guest" theme this time around, though!
