This book reveals the source of stagnant small groups... focusing on everything except the presence of Christ!

Ralph Neighbour does an excellent job explaining the mindset of the current small group member, who worships a historical Jesus, not an everlasting, indwelling Christ. Pastors understand this distinction, but small groups are not filled with seminary graduates, are they?

You and your small group ministry will be powerfully impacted by what Neighbour has to offer in this book!

From the Inside Flap:

The unadulterated, fabric-free truth about small group ministry in America.

Are you exhausted with doing small groups the same old way, hoping for better results? Are you exasperated by the lack of ownership among your small group members? Are your group leaders burned out? If you know small groups are vital to your church's success but can't figure out how to help them grow naturally, this book is for you! With a frank and unreligious tone, Neighbour diagnoses the challenges surrounding small group ministry, offering practical suggestions that are proven to work.

About the Author:

He holds a Doctorate of Theology from Luther Rice Theological Seminary and a Doctor of Sacred Theology from Southwestern Baptist University.

Book Description Touch Publications, United States, 2008. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Dr. Neighbour helps the reader understand that worshipping a historical Jesus without embracing an indwelling, eternal, and everlasting Christ will keep a small group a man-made gathering. When Christ s presence, power, and purposes are the sole focus of the gathering and every other agenda is set aside, it becomes a God-made group and takes off! This is a deep theological look at the true origin of the church (the cross, not pentecost), the Holy Spirit and the use, abuse, and misuse of spiritual gifts today, and what is required of the members of a true biblical community. Like Dr. Neighbour s other books, this work pulls no punches. if it needs a good whack, he hits it five or six times for good measure!. Seller Inventory # AAV9780978877989
