On October 15, 2011, some of the most experienced voices in small group ministry gathered in Athens, Alabama, for a morning of strategy and encouragement for small group leaders, ministry directors, and pastors. I’ve uploaded the edited versions of the conference videos. It’s not quite like being there, but hopefully you’ll find some wisdom here to enhance your discipleship ministry.


  • Bill Willits is the Executive Director of Ministry Environments and one of the founding staff members of North Point Ministries, the parent organization for North Point Community Church in Alpharetta, GA.
  • Keith Stanley is The Pastor of Local Disciple-making at The Church at Brook Hills in Birmingham, AL. He is responsible for developing a small group ministry for adults, developing and overseeing all urban ministries in Birmingham through small groups, and implementing principles from David Platt’s Radical.
  • Tommy Gray, Lead Pastor, Friendship Church, Athens, AL. Church planter, leadership developer.
  • Dave Treat, Discipleship Pastor, Friendship Church, Athens, AL. Leadership developer, trainer, author.

The Videos:

“Creating Community” Bill Willits shares some of North Point’s latest learning on discipleship and community in small groups.

“Connecting” Bill Willits shares some of North Point’s secrets and strategies for connecting people in small groups.

“Radical Together” Keith Stanley shares how the Church at Brook Hills is implementing a truly Radical approach to living and serving in small groups

“Stump the Chumps” A series of participant questions on small group ministry was fielded by some of the most experienced group life voices in the Southeast US.
