Releasing July 1, 2020

During times of suffering, the church can become a place where people want to run to instead of away from. Small groups offer a safe space for individuals to connect meaningfully with one another, and they also provide an environment where relational healing can begin.

This comprehensive guide to leading small groups provides 8 strategies for leading transformative small groups, dispels common myths about leading groups, and helps readers understand how groups work and the life stages of a group. The author suggests practical ways to lead groups effectively, using examples from scripture of how Jesus worked to transform people spiritually and emotionally. Gather Us In will equip small-group leaders with wisdom for relating to others, knowledge for helping others talk about their unfolding faith journeys, and confidence in their newly acquired facilitation skills. They will realize they don't need to know all the answers to be able to lead well.
