  7. Perfect environment for accountability groups.
  8. Any church (regardless of size) can have online groups.
  9. Online groups are great for pastors who are reluctant to be in a group.

  11. Free online group tip sheet is available.
  12. Easier to fit online groups into busy schedules.
  13. The online fields are ripe for the harvest!
  14. Hardly different from face-to-face groups.
