The Results

40% Growth in Small Groups in 40 Days.

By having pre-made, quality small group bible study guides and videos, and following our proven promotion plan, we believe that your church will see significant growth in your small groups. Churches that participated in Red Letter Challenge and followed our promotion/distribution plan saw an average of more than 40% increase in small groups. One church even grew by 500%! Smaller churches that didn’t have small groups used RLC to launch their small groups, and even large churches saw growth many times over 40%.

What Church Leaders are Saying​

“The entire RLC does an excellent job at providing an all-in-one congregational resource. From Kids to Adults, Small Group Gatherings to Congregation-Wide Events; it made planning easy, but also gave creative inspiration for staff to personalize for our unique congregation.”

As many of the answers as we have!

By having pre-made, quality free resources, and following our promotion plan, we believe that your church will see significant growth in your small groups. Churches that participate in our 40-Day Church Challenges and follow our promotion/distribution plan see an average of more than 40% increase in small groups. One church even grew by 500%. Smaller churches that didn’t have small groups have used our materials to launch their small groups.

Great question. We’ve made it easy for you. For all of our FREE resources that come with our small groups, please visit our resource library.

We like to model after Jesus in all that we do. He had a group of 12 so that’s the ideal number we believe you should shoot for in your group.

Here’s the pledge we ask everyone to take on Week 1 of your small group:

  • I will be on time and show up with my whole heart.
  • I understand that this Group is 100% confidential. Whatever is shared in the Group stays in the Group.
  • I will respect other Group members by participating openly and speaking honestly, without dominating the discussions.
  • I will not try to fix people, preach a sermon, or give unsolicited advice.
  • When I share in the Group I will share primarily about myself and not about others.
  • I will trust God to work in all of us as we become more like Jesus!

No worries. If streaming is unable to work for you, we offer the small group videos for our 40-Day Challenges on a DVD at a very low rate. You can find it here in our shop. Alternatively, if you or your church subscribes to RightNowMedia our small group videos are featured on their site for FREE as well.

We would not encourage this. We believe the best results come in the small group when participants are daily challenging themselves for 40 days with the topics. We have discounted small group packs.
