So let’s be honest. Leading a small group isn’t always a walk in the park. You know what I mean.

You wrangle your students from every corner of the building…
You convince them to sit in what might be described as a circle…
You wait for them to stop throwing wads of paper at each other…
Then, finally, you ask, “So what did everyone think of the message this week?”

And…

Yeah. Leading a small group can be painful sometimes.

That’s why I’m so excited about a really fun new tool from Lead Small (the experts on all things small-groups-related).

This super fun Icebreakers Box is packed with questions to help your small group leaders get their groups off to a great start (without all of the crickets). Questions like…

  • What’s something you would never eat with cheese?
  • Unicorns: real or fake? Explain your view.
  • Would you rather have a robot or a helpful monkey?

As my friend Afton (the person responsible for this Icebreakers Box) says, “Maybe these questions aren’t exactly the core discussion questions of your group time. But remember that the first couple minutes of group are crucial. In just the first three minutes you have a unique window of time that can set up the group conversation to be forced and boring or fun, engaging, and a safe place to have a voice.”

And, for your information, this box is the biggest collection of icebreaker questions ever created. I know this because Afton googled it.

Also, she told me I could give you a coupon to get this fancy little box for 10% off if you use the coupon code UNICORNSAREREAL. She’s very nice. So go check it out (and use my coupon)! I hope you love it as much as I do!
