With insights from their best-selling book How People Grow, Cloud and Townsend show how God's plan for growth is made up of three key elements: grace plus truth plus time. When groups embrace those elements, they find God's grace and forgiveness and learn how to handle their imperfections without shame as they model God's love and support to one another.
In addition to describing what makes small groups work, Making Small Groups Work explains the roles and responsibilities of both leaders and group members. Employing tenets from the book How People Grow, this book equips leaders to understand the ins and outs of how to promote growth; and using principles from their best-selling book Boundaries, they show how to identify and find solutions for common problems such as boredom, noncompliance, passivity, aggression, narcissism, spiritualization, over-neediness, over-giving, and nonstop talking.

As a small group leader I came across this title after being recommended another book by the same Authors. I've found it inspirational and look forward to putting into practice many of its concepts. The authors clearly have a lot of experience in leading all sorts of small groups and their examples of situation & people they have help to grow over time with grace and truth are encouraging. I'm sure this book will transform you & your ministry to your small group what every its purpose is.
The information received was excellent for anyone who leads a small group. This a resource I will listen to again and again. Thanks
