Friends, this January I will be launching  a new  Small Group Ministry online training series.  The first is a 4 part program that covers  the content I usually offer in my day long trainings.  It is designed to provide a strong foundation in Small Group Ministry so clergy and lay leaders may launch (or re-launch) a healthy and growing small group ministry.


Peter brings to his work a powerful combination of experience, commitment, and enthusiasm for Small Group Ministry.
– The Rev. Bob Hill, author of The Complete Guide to Small Group Ministry

Whether presenting himself or facilitating the presentation of a guest speaker, Peter always brings the webinar experience alive, creating a welcoming environment in which questions and discussion are encouraged..
Mark Bernstein, Regional Growth Development Consultant, Central East Region of the UUA

Peter makes church work exciting and engaging.
– Rev. Richard Stower, Minister, First Parish. Scituate, MA
