Leading a Small Group-Qualifications

March 20, 2015

So I’m sometimes asked what qualifications are needed to lead a small group. The biggest qualification is a heart for people. Yep–that’s my number one priority. A heart for people. Of course a certain level of maturity is presupposed, and we want our leaders to be members of the church (since you’re doing ministry with the church, we want to know you’re committed and in agreement with our core doctrines). But I have personally never known a long-term successful small group leader that does not have a love for people.

If I had to choose between a knowledgeable, theologically savvy person with little passion for people, and a person who loves people but has not read as widely in theology, I’d choose the latter.
