Small Group Curriculum

I just got a question about how we choose curriculum for our small groups. The short answer is: we give individual leaders the freedom to choose the curriculum they feel would be most appropriate for their groups. That decision is made with the approval and coaching of their zone leaders and team leaders.

We do make suggestions. Anything by Willow Creek, Saddleback, Alpha,Northpoint Community Church, Intervarsity Press, or Lifeway is pretty much good to go as far as we are concerned. And I'm sure I'm leaving out some other good ones.

We also created a bookstore-- The ZoneGathering Bookstore-- through amazon.com, that includes suggested curriculum in our different "focus" categories (Seeker, Learner, Influencer, and Investor) and for different demographics (men, women, couples).

We do have a standardized set of curriculum that we use for our core discipleship groups. I'll tackle that in subsequent post.
