This little book will revolutionize your small group ministry by moving small group leaders into the role of a point person for a core team of group members that takes over the leadership of the group. In other words, the information in this pocket book has the potential to eliminate leader burnout. Who doesn't want to learn how to do that?
Mike Mack has done a splendid job of explaining how Christ is the real leader of a small group, and leading a core team of members to facilitate the meetings, plan and execute missional tasks, and lead the group is much better than attempting to lead alone.
Table of Contents:
No single individual can lead a small group without burning out at some point in ministry.
Change the leader of your group: Let Christ be the leader and lead from the second chair.
Make more disciples by making less: Don't attempt to pastor every member of your group.
Discover and develop a core team: The five steps to effectively giving away your group to the members.
Let go of leadership. That's right, let others lead and step back and watch them grow.
Launch the group: Assist core team members in forming new groups (in other words, help your members move out of your house and start a spiritual family of their own).
The book is small (4 x 6 inch pocket book), concise, and excellent for busy leaders who don't or won't take the time to read a full-sized or longer book.
