What is a Huddle?

A HUDDLE is a small group of people standing in a circle, interacting and learning together with the help of a Facilitator (a Ward Missionary). 

Huddles meet for 20-30 minutes, two to three times a week, typically at a Church building.  Some areas are also conducting "Huddles in the Home," in an effort to reach out to those lacking transportation or child care.

Huddles begin and end with prayer, and the entire 20 minutes is spent practicing conversational English out loud and interacting with others in the Huddle. No Spanish or other language should be spoken during the Huddle.

What is the size of a Huddle:

The ideal size of a Huddle is from 6 to 10 participants.

The most dynamic Huddles are made up of a mix of members and friends-of-other faiths. This creates energy and enthusiasm as participants learn together and develop lasting friendships. 


What is the Role of a Facilitator:

The Facilitator is the key to the success of this program. He or she is the role model, the coach, the leader of the group.

The most effective Facilitators are those individuals who are happy, warm, caring, friendly, energetic, and enthusiastic.  These wonderful people know how to show love and concern in spite of any language or cultural barrier that may exist.
