Small Group Leader Information

Here is more detailed information about the tasks for Small Group Leaders. Also included are the tasks for people from your group who volunteer to help, so you can explain what they would be doing. There will be a detailed Leader Guidelines for each of the 9 small group meetings.

MJ is my virtual assistant. She will set up the small groups.
