People are created for connection and community. But it doesn’t just happen. It takes intentionality and a willingness to work. Chris Surratt understands what it takes to create a culture of community through groups better than anyone I’ve ever seen. Not only does he have a desire to help churches create healthy small group cultures but he has the experience and understands the practical steps to help churches flourish in this area.
We are a three year old church who has grown rapidly to 800 people and knew we needed a stronger small group system to stay small while growing large. We also had someone on staff who we knew could take on this challenge but would need help. Chris Surratt has been integral in coaching and on-boarding our new staff member as well as helping us build a system that can last through our next season of growth. If you want to be a church of small groups instead of a church with small groups Chris can help!
Chris Surratt led the very first small group we joined when we moved to Nashville and it was awesome. I’m so happy he’s sharing his years of wisdom with the rest of the world because small groups are critical to building real community at churches and he’s an expert!
