- Invite, invite, invite. Don’t sit back and wait for people to find you. Don’t expect a church-wide announcement to do the trick.
- Start as a team. The strongest group launches begin with a team.
- Keep it simple. Don’t make the group complicated. Newcomers don’t know what to expect. Keeping the group simple helps people not to feel intimidated.
