LifeWay is Back!

Many if not all who come here to the Small Groups Guy have had an interaction with LifeWay at some point. For me, I grew up on LifeWay materials in my Sunday school classes because there is no one who penetrates the church market better than big ole LW. That said, as a small groups pastor I have largely forgotten & neglected LifeWay as a company that could help me disciple my people in our small groups. I knew of some resources that had come through them but largely felt they had little to offer for some time that didn’t cost hundreds of dollars.


Well, over the past year I am very happy to tell you LifeWay has ramped up their small group’s division and baby, they are BACK! They’ve trimmed a lot of the fat off of their pricing structure making resources far more accessible to the average small group. They’ve also connected up with some strong up & coming authors whose material is written out of and geared towards the small group context.  I had the great privilege to hang with one of their best team members, Phil Davis, this week who explained Life Way’s improved paradigm for reaching into the small group world and I got all excited.


Here is why: LifeWay has been around for some time. They’ve put great resources out for some time. They’ve helped the local church build disciples for generations. With that comes great experience. But making transitions for those kinds of companies is hard. I’m excited because an organization willing to humble itself & change for the sake of the kingdom is going to be helpful. So Thank you LifeWay. Good to have you back!
