Product Description

God declared through the Apostle Paul that the church would be a place of transformation. In 2 Corinthians 5:17 we find, "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away, and look, new things have come." Despite this, the church seems increasingly to be a place where transformation fails to occur.

Surveying the landscape, however, there are some bright spots where churches are faithfully producing transformed disciples. Furthermore, as shown in Scripture and supported by new research, God designed such transformation to often happen in the context of smaller groups of people.

But what characteristics are true of churches that are making transformed disciples through group-based ministry, whether small groups, missional communities, Sunday school, or some other expression of groups?

In Transformational Groups, Ed Stetzer and Eric Geiger have created a new scorecard that will provide a map to transformational success for your church's groups ministry. Using data from the largest survey of pastors and laypersons ever done on the condition of groups in the church, they define a simple process to lead your groups from where they are to where God wants them to be.

    If you are serious about utilizing small groups for making disciples of Jesus Christ, then this book is for you! Based on both research and experience, it is informative, but not in a way that leaves readers fatigued. The authors' approach supports their contention that God intends small, relational groups of believers to be the best environment for life transformation. People are given priority over programs, which is refreshing. I interacted with the book by highlighting and taking notes throughout its pages. I plan on implementing many of the principles contained in this work in my own context. Read it and you just may do the same.
