“Stagnation usually happens if a group is together for longer than sixteen to eighteen weeks. At that point, people have had the chance to get incredibly comfortable with one another. When group members are so familiar with each other that they start knowing what other members are going to say before they say it, growth stalls. Everyone settles into a comfort zone – and growth does not happen in comfort zones.”
– Nelson Searcy and Kerrick Thomas, with Jennifer Dykes Henson
The above quote is from p. 57 of Activate: An Entirely New Approach to Small Groups.
This revised and expanded edition of Activate shows church leaders how to make their small groups work. Drawing from the startling success of small groups at The Journey Church, Nelson Searcy and Kerrick Thomas debunk the myths, set the record straight, and show how church leaders can implement a healthy small group ministry that gets the maximum number of people involved and solves many of the important problems facing churches of all sizes. These practical strategies will produce life-changing results.
