In the first 18 months after Mission Academy Live was launched, more than 500 small groups were established consisting of young people aged 11-18 and a leader. MAL small groups may be existing groups or newly formed groups and are encouraged to meet monthly, fortnightly or weekly. Working through 10 video based sessions these groups will offer ongoing peer to peer challenge with a primary focus for young people to be reaching out to six of their friends. At the heart of the MAL Small Groups, in the context of peer to peer evangelism, is discipleship, accountability, and prayer. Small Groups sessions will be facilitated by youth workers, volunteers or church leaders providing the platform for peer to peer evangelism amongst young people.
Commitment required of MAL small group leaders:
To be responsible for facilitating the MAL video based sessions, committing to journey the 10 monthly sessions with your group
To choose, if helpful, to work with a specific age bracket within the 11-18 age group. Eg 11-14’s, 14-18’s, 13-16’s etc
To have a fully enhanced DBS check
