Tips to Being a Successful B-Group Leader

  • Pray daily for your group members. Tell them you are praying for them, and encourage them to pray for each other.
  • Develop an assistant. If you recognize that a faithful group member has leadership potential, ask them to prayerfully consider being your assistant. This may be the most fulfilling accomplishment of leadership—helping someone find his/her purpose in God by learning to serve others.
  • Commit to relationships by celebrating life events with each other, encouraging and supporting each other in difficult times, calling and texting each other just because, and being a faithful friend.
  • Foster communication within the group. Have group members exchange contact information, and encourage them to fellowship outside the group.
  • Declare a mission with your group; come up with a plan for how you will serve together.
  • Respect people’s time by beginning and ending your group on time.
  • Rally the group around a member who is going through a crisis. Use wisdom and be sensitive as you serve this person.

Select a co-leader (optional)

You do not have to lead a B-Group by yourself. You can partner with someone and co-lead a group. Having a co-leader for your B-Group is optional. A co-leader’s role is the same as the leader’s role in caring and praying for group members and facilitating the meetings.
