"As Christians, we all know that evangelism should be a priority in our everyday lives. But turning that knowledge into action can be a difficult proposition, especially when we enjoy the comfort and intimacy of a small group.

This download can provide your small group with the tools needed to effectively reach out as a community of believers, including practical advice from Bill Hybels, Jeff Arnold, Alan Danielson, and others. As a Training Theme, this download also includes devotionals, case studies, assessments, and activities to help your church train and support group leaders on the principles and methods of small-group evangelism."
