Overview

What's so big about small groups?

With proven results in drawing people into community and helping them grow to maturity in Christ, small groups have established themselves as a crucial ministry of the church to its members and its mission field. But whether leading a small group, coaching small group leaders or implementing a churchwide ministry, you need vision, knowledge and skill to minister effectively through small groups.

Jeffrey Arnold knows the pressures of small group ministry, but he has also seen the power of small groups in many ministry settings. In this revised edition of The Big Book on Small Groups, he breaks down small groups so that you can see them from all angles.

The first four chapters focus on the structure and benefits of a small group ministry. Further chapters explore the basics of Christian community—prayer, worship, Bible study, outreach and mission, as well as how to multiply groups. Resources for further reading, ideas for coaches and trainers, and curriculum to photocopy for small group sessions are also included.

A constant companion throughout your small group ministry, The Big Book on Small Groups will give you the basics to get you going—and the support and nurture you need to make small groups effective as a strategy for outreach and discipleship.
