Excerpt


If it is all about God, why do we live as if it is all about us? This book--a cross between a manifesto and a how-to manual--inspires readers to embrace outreach as a lifestyle--a natural, everyday thing that is as normal as going to the grocery store.
When church members lead joyful, outward-focused lives, they make powerful connections with family and friends...and those connections are opportunities to share Gods love. Simple and Biblical, too.
Outflow inspires a vision for living an outward focused life and provides practical tools to make that vision a reality with:
  • A clear image (an overflowing fountain) that cements in the mind the five-step process by which readers can move from an inward to an outward focus.
  • 25 readings that support a five-week Outflow focus
  • Labs - practical activities readers can do to live an outward focus with their family, community, friends, and the world at large.

Steve Sjogren pioneered Servant Evangelism at a church that grew from a handful of members to more than 5,000 members using Outflow principles.
Dave Ping is Director of Equipping Ministries International. More than 130,000 leaders have benefited from his practical training.

Excerpt


I once heard a pastor say that while "community is the one thing contemporary people want, it is also the thing they are least prepared to receive." He went on to discuss how: individualism has divided our communities, ambition has taught us to value competition over cooperation and our schedules leave little time to invest in the lives of our loved ones andthe common life of our communities. Randy Frazee'sThe Connecting Church identifies and develops many of the same themes, which were explored in that intriguing sermon. In The Connecting Church Frazee paints a beautiful portrait of biblical community and talks about the sacrifices we will have to make in order to experience life together. If you are ready to move beyond small groups and develop authentic community this book is required reading.

Effective, life-giving small groups learn how to embrace both ends of each continuum. Walking the Small Group Tightrope will strengthen your sense of balance, help you gain confidence as a leader, and show you how to release the untapped creative and relational energy in your group.
