Small Groups - Built to Last

I did a workshop at our Small Group Leaders Conference last weekend called "Built to Last." Here was the main idea:

Any church can get a large group of people to sign up for small groups. The real challenge is to develop a small group ministry that is built to last. What does it take to build a sustainable and thriving small groups ministry in any church of any size?

I talked about 19 principles for building a small groups ministry that lasts. Yes, 19! I said it's like 19 short blog posts. So I'm going to write a post for each principle over the next few days or weeks.
