Over the past two decades, small groups have gone from spontaneous gatherings among friends to a major and elaborate phemen 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 t 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 t require a church-wide adoption of an intricately designed system of assimilation, making it useful to any small group leader looking for guidance.
Bill Search is small groups minister at Southeast Christian Church in Louisville, Kentucky, which has a regular Sunday morning attendance of 18,000.
