Host Central is a place where you can find all the resources you will need to successfully launch and host your small group. Your role as a host has three simple parts: invite, prepare, and discuss.

You may have questions or concerns about hosting a small group. Here is a list of the most frequently asked questions by small group hosts.

Frequently Asked Questions


Step 1 – INVITE People

Your first step is to invite others to join your group. There are two parts to inviting: who and how.

WHO: The most impactful invitations will be the ones offered to those you already have relationship with. Think about friends, co-workers, neighbors, nearby family members, other parents involved in your kids’ activities, etc.

HOW: Don’t overthink this! Something as simple as “I get together with some other people each week to eat, laugh, and talk about life and faith. I’d love for you to join us sometime!”

Though you have the option of having your group listed on, the best and most effective way to grow your small group is through your personal invitation.

Step 2 – PREPARE for Guests

Each week you will prepare for your guests by setting the environment and reviewing the group materials.

Step 3 – DISCUSS as a Group

Finally, you will facilitate a discussion with your group members after they watch our weekly video series. Each week, our video co-host will kick off the discussion with a message overview and starter question. The video series will also help keep your group in the know about what’s coming up at Sun Valley.
