It's important to have an atmosphere that allows for safe and open discussion. Our hope is to model at a macro level what a healthy group experience should look like on a micro-level. Everyone sits at tables with no more than eight people per a table so everyone contributes to the conversation. Discussion guidelines and boundaries are provided by the speakers ahead of time.
A conference where you do more speaking than the speaker! That's our goal! Groups are all about discussion so why would we format a Groups workshop that was anti-discussion? The most valuable part of this workshop is you talking with other pastor/directors, brainstorming, verbally processing, and hearing ideas from others and not just the speakers!
