One church, Solana Beach Presbyterian in Solana Beach California, has an effective small group ministry.
One thing they are doing a little different this year (2008) is using their small groups to help people grow comfortable in doing evangelism — a place to practice telling their stories —
“stories that testify to why they have put their trust in Jesus Christ.”
To help implement this idea, the senior pastor gave a 10 week sermon series devoted to evangelism as storytelling, which modeled story telling as a way to communicate your faith.
Some of the sermons used principles found Just Walk Across the Room, by Bill Hybels (get your copy from Amazon), which I have found to be a great current resource for Evangelism.
The small groups become the place where people can grow comfortable talking about their own faith, and then sharing their own stories with friends.
Presumably (but not shared in the PGF article), people report their story telling encounters in their small group.

Let me ask you this?
