Great Resource
4 stars By Jacqui, Oct 24 2013
This is a great resource for every life group leader to have on their shelf. Although American it has many, many ideas that can be used or adjusted for use in our Australian culture. It is really a book to give you fresh ideas.
It is divided into sections for ease of reference. These sections are Community, Worship and Prayer, Study and Outreach. Community has activities, games and icebreakers to use to draw your group closer together. The other sections give a range of ideas to help and motivate your group to worship, pray, study and apply God's word and reach out to others. It even has an appendix on involving children and youth in small groups.The final appendix on Building Bridges to Ethnic Minorities referred specifically to to ethnic minorities in America, but the overall principles can still be applied to the groups we have here. I would encourage life group leaders to have this resource available.
