I was at the bookstore yesterday looking through several books that have been on my “Must Read” list for a long time, and I ran into one of my female small group leaders also checking out books from her “must read” list. As we talked about the various books on the “Summer Reading” table, I had some thoughts…
What would it look like for all my small group leaders to be reading the same book I was reading?
What if that book stressed the importance of community and relationships?
What if that book could help to communicate our vision for Preteen Ministry over the coming year?
I don’t know how it will work, but we’re going to give it a shot. AND I NEED YOUR HELP??
I need books that will motivate and encourage, as well as equip them to lead a group of 9-12 year olds. The goal is to pick 2 or 3 books to read through and discuss over the summer. It could be a how-to ministry book, a great book on a particular spiritual discipline, or something practical like a guide to successful business. They don’t have to be ministry related as long as the principles can be transferred to ministry. In other words, we’re not reading the Twilight series!
If you have done something like this or were going to do something like this…what book(s) would you recommend?
