Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Small groups cannot thrive by focusing on either end of the continuums-hey cannot choose friendship over accountability, kindness over confrontation, task over community. Rather, effective, life-giving small groups must walk the center, holding both ends in healthy tension and charting a course that develops authentic community and facilitates life change.

Synopsis:

Six Ways to Improve Your Balance as a Group Leader

Leading a successful small group is like walking a tightrope. You traverse a taut, exciting line, balancing the dynamic tensions characteristic of every group. Drawing from the concept of "polarity management," Bill Donahue and Russ Robinson help you understand and deal with six dynamic areas every group leader must manage in order to create genuine, transforming small group community.

Your group is in for unprecedented connection and growth when you harness the interplay between

-Truth and Life

-Care and Discipleship

-Friendship and Accountability

-Kindness and Confrontation

-Task and People

-Openness and Intimacy

Effective, life-giving small groups learn how to embrace both ends of each continuum. Walking the Small Group Tightrope will strengthen your sense of balance, help you gain confidence as a leader, and show you how to release the untapped creative and relational energy in your group.

Synopsis:

At last there is a proven resource from Willow Creek created specifically for small group leaders, those who serve in the trenches of small group life and ministry.

Synopsis:
