Our friend Gina wrote about the purpose of small group leaders on the Lead Small blog.

As a SGL, you are a giver of light.
When you show up predictably in the lives of your few, you create an opportunity to shed a little more light into their world. To look them in the eye, smile and invest encouraging words into them.
Because you choose to Be Present by showing up predictably and mentally in the lives of your few, you position yourself to invest more light into their hearts. Your words hold the power to illuminate the truth for them. When you encourage your few, you invest that light into their hearts.
And with every week you invest those words, that light grows brighter.
