Product Description

Connect, Change, and Cultivate are three words that can simplify the vital work of a small group leader. Bill Search, small groups pastor for one of the nation's largest churches, lays out three "patterns" for success that don't lock you into one approach, the latest fad, or complicated procedures. These biblically grouped C's can make whatever small group model you like best work better. Whether you're a first-time facilitator or a seasoned veteran, a pastor or a volunteer leader, applying these principles will enrich the spiritual life of any small group.

Publisher's Description

Over the past two decades, small groups have gone from spontaneous gatherings among friends to a major and elaborate phenomenon in the church. Many evangelical churches have some form of small groups ministry in place. But there's just one problem, says Bill Search--what started as a simple get-together has become a complicated process, especially for small group leaders. They are often not sure what is expected of them or what to expect from their groups as a result of their efforts.
In Simple Small Groups, Search lays out the three C's of small groups--connecting, changing, and cultivating. This paradigm helps to simplify leading small groups in a way that is helpful, rewarding, and life changing. Unlike many other books geared toward small group leaders, Simple Small Groups does not require a church-wide adoption of an intricately designed system of assimilation, making it useful to any small group leader looking for guidance.

Author Bio

“Bill is a master story teller and he uses stories to pass on some great ideas about small groups. Bill calls this book “Simple.” But it is also profound – entertainingly profound.” - Lyman Coleman, small groups pioneer and creator of the Serendipity Bible
