After adding your groups to the small groups structure, you must designate leaders for each group. When a member requests to join a small group, the small group leader is assigned that connection. Members cannot request to join small groups that do not have leaders.

You must assign parent-level group leaders a staff or administrator profile. You must assign bottom-level group leaders a lay leader, staff, or administrator profile.
