Welcome to “Pastor Wayne Classics: Me and My Big Mouth,” a small group study that originated from a 2009 sermon of mine. This small group study is designed to help you become more like the person Jesus created you to be. We are glad that you have joined us and we are excited because we know that it is by His divine invitation that you are here.

Spiritual growth happens in small groups because life change happens as we build relationships with other Christian brothers and sisters. In the setting of our community, we can obey Jesus’ command to love one another. In this study, you will not only learn about and discuss biblical principles for life, but you will also be challenged to think and talk about how to apply what you have learned to your everyday life. The goal is not that you accumulate more head knowledge, but that your spiritual life would be transformed and your character will reflect that of Jesus Christ.

The ideas in this small group study are more than just the accumulation of my 40-plus years in ministry. I have included lessons I have learned from making hundreds of mistakes, as well as gems gleaned from observing many wonderful churches and leaders in action.

We must learn from each other, and when we do, we will be miles closer to becoming all that God desires for us. Join us as we embark on this adventure together. I pray that you will come away motivated and inspired in your walk with the Lord.

Serving Him Together,

Pastor Wayne Cordeiro
