Church leaders want to know how to make small groups work for their church communities, yet a quick look around shows that while small groups are all the rage, much of the time they create more problems than they solve. Nelson Searcy and Kerrick Thomas, founding pastors of The Journey Church in the heart of New York City, suggest that this failure is due to widely held beliefs about small groups that just aren't true - and they aim to debunk the myths and set the record straight! Drawing from the startling success of small groups at The Journey Church (which has had over 100 - percent participation in small groups for more than 4 years) Searcy and Thomas show how church leaders can implement a life - changing small - group ministry that gets the maximum number of people involved and solves many of the important (yet irritating) problems facing churches of all sizes.
