- It’s my job as a small group leader, isn’t it?
- We just love spending time together, sharing concerns, and loving on each other. And, of course, we manage to tell a Bible story and talk about it, duh.
- Can’t wait until tonight’s session—everyone shows up expecting God to work! His Word really comes alive.

When we commit to make disciples above any other purpose, then we have a responsibility to listen closely to those we’re leading or those we’re mentoring. Is there progress? Are they bearing fruit? Is our group growing in faith and numbers? How long has it been since we’ve branched?

“They’re alive!” should be our cry when making disciples or oral learners for Jesus.
