By Austin Maxheimer and Zach Below
What if small group ministries had been invented in 2014... by your local churches? Would anything be different? Would any "sacred cows" disappear—or at least be prodded toward fresh vision and action? Answering these questions can activate anew the potential of Christian community—and Austin Maxheimer and Zach Below are determined to help church leaders do just that.
Within From Couch to Community, leaders will:
- Face the "sacred cows" in todays small group ministries—and discover how to create real life change instead.
- Shift church groups away from paradigms of complacency—and move people toward relevant, compassionate relationships.
- Discover how to help people far from God experience Jesus in localized small groups.
Austin and Zach think pastors... leaders... Bible teachers... and volunteers can change our world through small group ministry. Maybe its time for you to believe that too.
Great for pastors, small group leaders, and small group members. Includes discussion questions for small groups to engage in conversation about the mission and purpose of their own small group. While supplies last!
