Item Description...
Overview
In Starting Small Groups: Building Communities That Matter, Jeffrey Arnold discusses small groups and details step-by-step the method for designing a small-group ministry to fit a congregation's unique situations. Adapted from a workbook format that allows each congregation to identify its own particular needs and character, this resource includes ways to plan, envision, and strategize for the formation of small groups. The author looks at significant issues related to designing or revamping a small-group ministry, including group types; group structure; leadership training and support; marketing; recruiting people into groups; answering the why, when, how, and what of groups; and evaluating so that positive changes can be continually made. Ending each chapter is a series of workbook-style questions. The answers to these questions form the structure and content of each church's unique ministry design. While individuals, committees, and churches work their way through the questions, they may consult the sample strategy contained in an appendix at the end of the book. The writing style employed in this resource is simple, graphic, and easy to read. It is written so that both laypersons and pastors will be comfortable using it. Stories abound so that a process that may seem difficult comes to life in these pages.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
For "Pros" and "Rookies" alike!  Dec 23, 1998
As an addition to the publisher's collection of books in the "Leadership Insight Series," Jeffrey Arnold offers a "how-to" and "why" book the purpose of which is described simply in the title: Starting Small Groups: Building Communities That Matter. Despite the numerous benefits and proven success of small groups, very few congregations have more than 5 percent of their members active in them. Arnold offers this resource as a hands-on guide for analyzing, planning, guiding, and establishing small groups in the church. The book is especially valuable for small groups "veterans" who think they've "been there, done that" and have subsequently decided that this aspect of Christian ministry is better relegated to their members who are either emotionally dependent or fad followers. It suggests that such veteran leaders would be wise to reconsider the possibilities of small groups ministry, while also making it possible for "rookie" leaders to start a small group ministry right the first time.
