To build a healthy, growing, multiplying small group, the leader must dream, pray, invite, contact, prepare, mentor, fellowship, and grow. At times, Earley seemed to use prayer and fasting as manipulative methods to get things to go his way (e.g., p. 32). Good practical tips on organizing and growing a small group. Excellent section on personal growth (ch. 8).

Concise and practical guide for small group leaders that answers the question: "What do I do OUTSIDE my small group time to lead a healthy and growing group?"

Excellent book to help the budding small group leader get soundly on track from the beginning. Also very useful for the established leader, making sure that he has all the bases covered when it comes to leading his group. One habit that I thought would make a fitting 9th one is the participation of the group in poor projects because as Christians we are called to remember the poor.

Just read it for the second time after about 8 years, still has some great ideas for how to lead. I should read it again in a few years, or just try to remember better this time...
