Weigh In – Volume 32: Small Group Destruction


From time to time I post a question that comes into the blog for YOU to answer. What advice would you give this youth pastor who is asking about small group host home liability. I already answered him personally with a few suggestions but got his permission to share the question here, too. Hoping you could share your thoughts in the comments, too. Weigh in!

We’re staring youth small groups in our ministry and we’re hosting them in homes. I notice you do the same thing in HSM. My question: How do you handle host home liabilities, should they arise?

If someone trips over a garden hose and breaks their arm in the front yard of a host home and sues the host, does the church assist with the legality? Are the hosts on their own? Do you have some kind of written agreement with the owners of the host homes?

Would love to hear your thoughts and answers in the comments! Weigh in!
