Refuel '18

Header Image

It's time to refuel with a little (or a lot of) coffee, laughter, and inspiration. 

We're gathering all small group leaders from every campus under one roof at Eagle Brook's Lino Lakes location. This morning is designed to refuel and refresh you, but most importantly, we hope you leave knowing how much we value and appreciate you as a leader in our church. There will be lots of fun and laughter, worship, and relevant sessions that are designed to help you grow as a leader, no matter what kind of small group you lead.

Saturday, Feb. 24

Breakout Sessions:

Developing Others
How can you, as a leader, identify and develop other leaders? This breakout is a three-step process to help you find leaders around you. It will focus on how to identify, develop, and launch future small group leaders. 

Fill Up First
Every small group leader helps to create environments where people grow relationally and in their faith. Yet, each leader needs to be growing in their everyday walk with Jesus as well. In this breakout, you will learn about how to develop healthy spiritual practices that promote growth and gain practical tips on how to lead yourself and others in a small group context.

The Critical Characteristic of Leadership
What separates leadership from all the other spiritual gifts out there? There’s one characteristic that is an essential ingredient to helping you lead a small or large group. In this session, you’ll learn about what that one characteristic is and talk about ways that you can effectively use this in your small group.

Disaster Relief
Everyone experiences challenges in life. In times of crisis, we need support. When others are suffering, we can offer support. Because group leaders are in relationship with group participants, they have an unprecedented opportunity to help their group provide the kind of support that is needed at just the right time.

More than Strangers
We all want our small groups to be more than just a group of strangers doing a study together, but sometimes it can be a challenge to know how to really connect. In this breakout, we'll talk about how to make the most of your time together so that your group can build authentic and significant relationships with each other.
