Small groups come in many sizes and shapes including cell groups, small groups, open groups, closed groups and Sunday School groups.  Small groups provide an environment to produce close personal relationships and great evangelistic opportunities.  Small groups can be formed around ministry teams, outreach, Bible study or discipleship.  They can be on the church premises, in homes or at a location away from the church.

Small groups of any organizational element have some similarities such as the development of leaders and similar organizational structure.  Each church soon discovers that there are many unique elements to their small groups ministry. 

California Southern Baptist Convention is committed to provide resources for small groups through consulting, training and networking. We are ready to assist with curriculum interpretation, leadership development, evangelism strategies, training and ministry development.

Feel free to take advantage of training and consulting resources of CSBC listed on this page.
