Publisher's Description

Small Groups That Succeed.

Small groups are the key to impacting lives in your church. But a healthy small-group environment—one that fosters meaningful, lasting connections—doesn’t just happen.

So pull up a chair. Let’s talk about how to make it happen.

Bill Willits and bestselling author Andy Stanley share their successful approach, which has resulted in nearly eight thousand adults becoming involved in small groups at North Point Community Church in Atlanta . Simply put, the five principles clearly described here have passed the test.

This is not just another book about community; this is a book about strategy—strategy that builds a small group culture. Creating Community shares clear and simple principles to help people connect into meaningful relationships. The kind God desires for each of us. The kind He uses to change our lives.

Put this proven method to work in your ministry and enjoy the tangible results—God’s people doing life TOGETHER.

"The small-group program at North Point Community Church is not an appendage; it is not a program we tacked on to an existing structure. It is part of our lifestyle. We think groups. We organize groups. We are driven by groups. Creating Community contains our blueprint for success. And I believe it has the potential power to revolutionize your own small-group ministry!" — Andy Stanley

Story Behind the Book

Creating Community flows out of the North Point Community Church story. The message here is not just some new small group program, but reflects a passion lived out and implemented in their church from the very beginning. Even with phenomenal growth, the church has stayed true to its commitment to small groups and has fine-tuned its ministry process into one of the most unique and effective models in churches today. Andy Stanley and Bill Willits have put these successful principles into this new book with the hope and prayer that pastors, churches, and leader with put them into practice.

    This is a good book for those who oversee the small groups ministry at their church. It gives great ideas for helping church members get involved in a small group. I recommend it to all small group pastors/directors.

    A refreshing read on how to make the complex simple. To learn how this church moved people into the small group thought process to transform and to help people to become more like Christ. The stories in this book make it real. The questions will cause you to think and to evaluate where you aren and where you want people to go. Great book for every leader in a church that want to move peple to become a fully devoted follower of Jesus Christ.
