Item Description...
Small groups can make a BIG difference by encouraging individual growth, strengthening the church, and involving the community! In this revised bestseller, Arnold explores the basics of "Body Life" and explains how to start a group, develop relationships, train leaders, launch outreach programs, and more. Includes a "small-group starter kit" and training resources.

Publishers Description
What's so big about small groups? With proven results in drawing people into community and helping them grow to maturity in Christ, small groups have established themselves as a crucial ministry of the church to its members and its mission field. But whether leading a small group, coaching small group leaders or implementing a churchwide ministry, you need vision, knowledge and skill to minister effectively through small groups. Jeffrey Arnold knows the pressures of small group ministry, but he has also seen the power of small groups in many ministry settings. In this revised edition of The Big Book on Small Groups, he breaks down small groups so that you can see them from all angles. The first four chapters focus on the structure and benefits of a small group ministry. Further chapters explore the basics of Christian community--prayer, worship, Bible study, outreach and mission, as well as how to multiply groups. Resources for further reading, ideas for coaches and trainers, and curriculum to photocopy for small group sessions are also included. A constant companion throughout your small group ministry, The Big Book on Small Groups will give you the basics to get you going--and the support and nurture you need to make small groups effective as a strategy for outreach and discipleship.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
a balanced and flexible approach  Jan 26, 2006
Over the course of the past two weeks, i have read almost every book on Small Groups and have found many of them to offer inflexible and extra-biblical definitions of the Small Group (e.g. "You cannot grow as a Christian unless you're in a Small Group"). Jeffrey Arnold offers a more balanced and thoughtful approach.
Book focuses on short term not on long term evangelism  Mar 14, 1999
I was able to read this book in about 2 hours. His information is useful in getting ideas on setting up small groups. However, he doesn't see it as the New Testament church in ACTS. He sees as a short term unit lasting only a year or so. He doesn't see the unit as a procreative evangelistic unit that helps support the larger church body. He doesn't see the small group as a place where a person gifts and spiritual gifts are developed for long term ministry. He doesn't touch on Gods power that has been released in small groups through healing or any other way.
