Next Steps

This page helps group leaders determine the best next steps for their members


Be sure you know the condition of your flocks, give careful attention to your herds. Proverbs 27:23

How do I measure if group members are moving one step?

Ask! Make it part of your discussion whether in a group setting or individually. Also, encourage everyone in your group to complete the next step survey at the end of the semester. Here are some great questions to guide your conversation:

  • How did you get connected to this small group?
  • What are you most looking forward to in the group?
  • Do you attend Valley?
  • What brought you to Valley?
  • Have you ever been part of a small group before?
  • What do you feel like God has been doing in your life lately?
  • Are you familiar with Saturday Prayer?
  • What areas of your faith are you hoping to grow in the coming months?
  • What are you focused on in your life right now?
  • Have you been through Valley’s Growth Track? 
  • Do you remember what your personality type is or what your spiritual gifts are?
  • Have you ever served on the Valley Dream Team?
  • How can I pray for you?


What are the next steps I can share with my group members?

  • Invite them to attend a Sunday service with you.
  • Share your personal story and what God has been teaching you.
  • Invite them to a SaturdayMorning Prayer Service.
  • Share how Growth Track can help them discover their purpose and invite them to attend.
  • Invite them to consider being water baptized. Invite your small group there to celebrate anyone getting baptized.
  • Share how you find time regularly to pray, worship, and read God’s Word and encourage them to make their own plan for time with God.
  • Tell them about the Bible app and its Bible reading plans.
  • If they are ready to receive Christ, offer to pray for them.
  • Encourage them to learn more about areas like tithing, the Holy Spirit, prayer, and spiritual warfare by watching past messages at
