2014 Small Groups Pastor Tele-Coaching Network

This BRAND NEW Small Groups Tele-Coaching Network is an 8 month relationship-based coaching network for Small Group Pastors and other staff pastors seeking to learn how to effectively implement a semester-based small groups system at their church that allows them increase small group participation, develop new small group leaders and multiply life-change in their church. The heart of the Network is found in a group of small group pastors talking together monthly over the phone for 2 hours - focused on taking small groups in their respective churches to the next level.

Kerrick Thomas will lead this Small Groups Coaching Network monthly. Kerrick is the Executive Pastor of The Journey Church and leads and teaches at The Journey's largest campus in Manhattan, NYC.

He is also the co-author of Launch: Starting a New Church from Scratch and Activate: A Brand New Way to Do Small Groups, regularly leads coaching networks for church planters, executive pastors, small group pastors and teaches church leadership seminars with Nelson Searcy. Kerrick was part of the launch of The Journey Church in New York City in 2002. By 2013, The Journey has grown to over 1,250 attending each Sunday with 1,300+ in small groups.

Here's what others are saying:

“If you're serious about getting your butt kicked and seeing real growth in understanding and leading small groups--it's a no-brainer.”

Bruce Farley
Journey Community Church
Fairview, OH

“If you want to learn how to run a group model that will engage 100% of your church (and beyond) in community, then join the network and learn from the guys who do systems unlike any ministry I've encountered.”

Ed Applegate
Crossroads Grace Community Church
Manteca, CA

“The Small Groups Coaching Network is an incredibly valuable resource for any small groups director who is looking for a tested and proven system of implementing small groups ministry. For the small groups director who is looking for ways to enhance and grow your small groups ministry, you will benefit through the teaching, resources, and experience of Kerrick.”

Mason Phillips
River of Life Church
Jacksonville, NC

“I entered the Tele-Coaching Network thinking that it was going to help me refine my skills as a Small Group Pastor. Not only did it do that, but it actually took hours and hours of work off my plate, because of the wisdom that was shared in our Tele-Coaching sessions. If you have not signed up for the Tele-Coaching Network, then I would do it today, because it will be the best way you can learn the information you need to have a successful Small Groups Ministry.”

Chuck Chessher
Oasis Church
Los Angeles, CA

“The book offers a general overview of the system, but the coaching network provides more specifics and insight into the nuances of making the system work. It's great to hear the practical side of how things work. If someone is planning on implementing the Activate system in their church for the first time, I think this coaching network is a "must do". It can help you see the benefits and potential issues before you experience them at your own church.”

Jay McGuirk
First Baptist Church
Hattiesburg, MS

“I am a true skeptic and do a LOT of research to find the best results. I have tried and experimented with several small group models. I can honestly say that the "Activate" model is the best when it comes to results and discipleship growth. Going through the book will be a great start to implementing the system, but you will never achieve the results you are looking for without going through the coaching network. The price is well worth it. I was afraid to make that investment, but this network has far exceeded my expectations. It is worth every penny. You owe it to your church and small group ministry to get the help you need to bring maximixed kingdom results!”
