Communication- The Zone Gathering Blog
About a year ago, the zone leaders (coaches of several small groups and leaders-- I will post more about our structure sometime soon) at NCC began experimenting with a blog, called The Zonegathering.
We weren't really sure why we needed a blog or what the purpose would be. But over the past few months, it has evolved into our primary communication tool. You can check it out here and get a feel for our weekly lineup here.
We want to use this to develop an online community for our small groups. It is a place for leaders to come together daily and share ideas and best practices. To celebrate wins. To learn new leadership ideas. To grow spiritually.
Several of our groups have started their own blogs this semester. Just a few include the Creative Expressions, the NCC Photography Group, Spiritual Disciplines, Rick Shaffer's Inductive Bible Study, and In-Service Ministry. Eventually, we will link to those group blogs from Zonegathering. We are in the process of trying to determine guidelines for group-related blogs.
