A Sneak Peak for SGN Members into what promises to the biggest small group book of the year!
Small Groups With Purpose
by our SGN founder, Steve Gladen.
Learn How to Create a Healthy and Successful Small Group Ministry!
This practical book empowers pastors, church staff, and small group leaders to develop a healthy ministry. Unpacking five biblical purposes to help readers fulfill the Great Commission, Small Groups with Purpose outlines a step-by-step process of creating a successful ministry.
Because it is built upon principles and not methods, this plan can be implemented in any size church. Each chapter ends with a list of questions for readers to answer to help them assess their current situation and their desires for the future. Personal stories, Scripture, and examples ground the discussion and show the system in action.
“If you are not harnessing and directing the latent energy of your members for the Great Commission and great commandment, your church will never be the church that God intends, and your people will never reach their God-intended maturity in Christ. So I invite you not just to read this book, but to study it with your leaders and adopt the biblical structures of “temple courts” and “house to house,” as the book of Acts repeatedly mentions. It will change your people. It will change your church. It will change your community. It can change the world!” Rick Warren, Lead Pastor of Saddleback Church
