Product Description

Leading a successful small group is like walking a tightrope. You traverse a taut, exciting line, balancing the dynamic tensions characteristic of every group. Drawing from the concept of "polarity management," Bill Donahue and Russ Robinson help you understand and deal with six dynamic areas every group leader must manage in order to create genuine, transforming small group community.

Your group is in for unprecedented connection and growth when you harness the interplay between Truth and Life/ Care and Discipleship/ Friendship and Accountability/ Kindness and Confrontation/ Task and People/ Openness and Intimacy.

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.

    I believe this is a great book for small group leaders for two reasons. First, it encourages small groups to have biblical values by which the health of the small group is measured. Second, it encourages small groups to make sure they are balancing these values in their group life and not focusing on one value over another. This is a great book to encourage the health of the small group you lead or are in.
