The concept of the Groups of 12 began in Bogota, Colombia, but w it is sweeping the globe. Joel Comiskey has spent years researching the G-12 structure and the principles behind it. From his experience as a pastor, trainer, and consultant, he has discovered that there are two ways to embrace the G-12 concept: adopting the entire model or applying the principles that support the model. From 12 to 3 focuses the application of principles rather than adoption of the entire model. It outlines the principles and provides a modified application which Joel calls the G-12.3. This approach presents a pattern that is adaptable to many different church contexts. The concluding section illustrates how to implement the G-12.3 in various kinds of churches, including church plants, small churches, large churches, and churches that already have cell groups.
