Starting Small Groups—and Keeping Them Going

A "nuts and bolts" small group book

There are tons of "how-to" small group materials on the market these days. Some of them, unfortunately, are not very good. Every once in a while, however, I come across a resource that surprises me. Starting Small Groups—and Keeping Them Going is such a resource.

This is what I would call a "nuts-and-bolts" small group book. It contains a plethora of practical ideas and information for starting small groups and supporting an existing ministry. Included in the book are the biblical foundations for small group ministry, a step-by-step plan for implementing and maintaining a small group ministry, a complete set of reproducible training worksheets for facilitators, and reproducible forms for surveys, evaluations, and record keeping.

Starting Small Groups—and Keeping Them Going is written for the leader in the church who will oversee the small group program. But I think small group leaders would also find this book valuable, especially with all the worksheets in the training materials section.

Starting Small Groups—and Keeping Them Going is part of the Intersections Small Group Series, published by Augsburg Fortress.
