Abstract:

"Become a small group that makes a difference. Small groups are a great place to connect with others, but you may wonder, is this all there is? Is sitting in a living room, talking about a book or watching a video, the extent of what we can do together? Isn't being a Christian community about something more?" "Missional Small Groups will help you see beyond the borders of your small group and into the lives of those around you so that you can make a difference. It's filled with practical suggestions for becoming intentionally involved with your community and bringing Jesus's message and healing to a hurting world." ""Scott's work aims to restore movement, mission, and community transformation to the heart of group life---right where it belongs!"---Dr. Bill Donahue, PhD, bestselling author, Leading Life-Changing Small Groups" ""An important book to challenge us and help us bring more meaning and purpose to our small groups... but not for the purpose you may think. Scott knows the goal of the church is to make not simply better groups but a better world."---Bill Willits, author, Creating Community; director of group life, North Point Community Church" ""Today, amidst an abundance of small groups literature, Missional Small Groups clearly stands out. This is a must-read for anyone interested in living out small group life within the church for the sake of the world."---Craig Van Gelder, PhD, professor of congregational mission, Luther Seminary, St. Paul, MN" ""Wow! This one volume is the new guide for understanding missional community, being a missional community, and creating missional communities."---Rick Howerton, director of events and training for Serendipity by LifeWay"--BOOK JACKET.
