If you need a format for getting started on developing small group leadership, this is a great resource from those who have been there and done that. There are a number of great references to other resources on developing small groups. The biggest message is the level of commitment that is required of the larger organization in order to make the small group concept successful.

I give this to all of our church's small group leaders. It's the best practical collection of insights into successful small group leadership that I've found.

Donahue¿s work, in conjunction with the Willow Creek Community Church small groups ministry team, provides an exceptionally practical resource and implementation guide for small group ministry. Full of charts and diagrams, Leading Life-Changing Small Groups supplies sample paperwork and handouts in addition to insights for developing leaders, conducting meetings, and shepherding group members. Very practical B+
