Small Circle

// INFORMATION COPIED FROM THEIR WEBSITE

Smallcircle is one-to-one relational discipleship program.

From their website:

LIFE CHANGES AT A TABLE FOR TWO

Deeper levels of relationships can be found beyond the group experience. Smallcircle captures the life-changing power of one-to-one relationships.

  1. The Predicament
    There are three very clear challenges that we face in the church culture. We are faced with a relational predicament, a transformation predicament, and a consumerism predicament.

  2. The Solution
    Even though we face steep challenges, there is a solution that tackles the predicaments we face: one-to-one relationships. “My growing conviction is that all substantial change depends on people experiencing a certain kind of relationship.” (Larry Crabb, Becoming a True Spiritual Community)

  3. The Strategy
    To reach extraordinary Kingdom results, there must be a strategy. “My studies of thousands of churches across the country have convinced me that discipleship does not happen simply because a church exists. It occurs when there is an intentional and strategic thrust to facilitate spiritual maturity.” (George Barna, Growing True Disciples)

  4. The Tools
    Learn about the tools of Xchange. A more detailed explanation with visual support is found in the Getting Started film in the training section.
