In Matthew 28:18-20 Jesus makes the mission of the church abundantly clear: “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations . . .” But how do you reach a twenty-first-century society filled with diverse backgrounds and varying levels of religious interest? And how can you expect to grow the body of Christ when only half of your own congregation regularly attends services? The answer may be simpler than you think: involve and empower the laity in small group ministry. Kurt W. Johnson not only provides the tools for organizing and leading successful small groups; but also explores the biblical and historical foundations for small group ministry. In this practical guide Johnson illustrates the proven effectiveness that small groups have for both nurturing the spirituality of current church members and leading friends; neighbors; coworkers; and others to a saving relationship with Christ.
