I think small groups are great. I think most of my learning and maturing as a believer happened in small groups. I can't speak for Frank V. but some pastors want to maintain a very strict control of what goes on in small groups (as if what is or isn't going on in the main meeting is more distinctive or spiritual in some way). I would suggest you also read the little book called "paul's idea of community" to understand where I'm coming from. The role of a pastor is noted in scripture but you will find it hard to justify the kind of authority we accord to pastor's today. Just some thoughts. God bless you for your desire to teach in a small group.
Holy greetings to you in the wonderful name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I am glad to see your wonderful ministry website and write this email and say that I and my congregation keep praying for you, your family and ministries that are going to help the many God's servants. So please pray for me and for my Children home and out-reach ministry in the jungle and tribal areas.
Dear Wade, I also call on you in the name of Jesus Christ to pray for me and my ministry that has taken place in tribal area here Andhra Pradesh & Orissa States in S. India and kindly remember us in your love and compassion for this ministry. “Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.” — James 1:27. You are most welcome to visit my Churches & Children Homes and hold pastors conferences.
With great eagerness I look forward to your kind reply and generosity.
Yours faithfully in Christ
Pastor Raja Sekhar
