Community That Is Christian is an essential resource for anyone working to build community in church-based small groups. This comprehensive book guides both those who equip leaders or lead small groups and small group members themselves, helping them transform their relationships into a Christ-centered community.

"If you want to replace shallow and superficial expressions of church life with a deeper, richer, biblical experience of what it means to be part of the Christian community, Julie's book is a must-read."
Bill Donahue, director of small groups, Willow Creek Association
author, Leading Life-Changing Small Groups

"There is no other small group book like this one. It is important that every primary leader of small group ministry understands what Julie teaches."
Gareth Weldon Icenogle, author, Biblical Foundations for Small Group Ministry

"A fresh, engaging, and solid look at how we are called to live together as followers of Christ. This is not just a book for pastors and church leaders, but is rather a comprehensive resource for everyone who wants to bring back relational intimacy into the center of the church's life and mission."
Chapman R. Clark, associate professor of youth, family, and culture
Fuller Theological Seminary

"We are indebted to Julie for pointing out mistakes of the past, but more importantly, the amazing possibilities for the future. For anyone in charge of small group ministry, I highly recommend this book."
Lyman Coleman, founder, Serendipity House

"Over her many years of effective ministry, Julie Gorman has won our respect and affection as a significant Christian leader. In this book, she provides a blueprint that will be helpful to every pastor and congregational leader."
Larry Richards, author and Christian educator

"From her long-term experience in the field, Julie Gorman provides numerous insights into the nature, types, and dynamics of community. This is an eminently practical book."
Robert Banks, director and dean, Macquarie Christian Studies Institute, Australia
