pinpoint the main difference between small groups an cell groups.

Six Keys for effective cell evangelism

  1. Prioritize cell evangelism: don't
    expect it will just happen

  2. Celebrate the little victories:
    don't compare yourself with worldwide cell churches

  3. Promote supernatural cell group
    evangelism: don't depend too heavily on techniques

  4. Emphasize group evangelism: don't
    allow the the cell leader to carry the entire burden

  5. Exemplify building relationships
    with non-Christians: don't expect that your people will befriend

  6. Keep on pressing on: don't be
    weary in well-doing

Romans 16:3-5

  5. How long did it last?

  6. How much good did it accomplish?

  7. How much did it cost financially?
