In the two years since, our HOME Group ministry has been transformed and discipleship through relationship is steadily becoming the heart of all that we do. And the concepts can be easily scaled and tailored to fit your situation. Can't recommend it highly enough!

JamesHope Mills, NCAge: 35-44Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Best book I have ever read about small groups!!!March 30, 2011JamesHope Mills, NCAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I am a young pastor with a heart broken over the condition of the typical local church and a passion to see the culture of my local church cultivated into a place where real disciples are made and where lasting transformation occurs and the fruit of this overflows naturally into our community with the Gospel. I have always been uneasy with a lot of the assumptions made about Christian education and models for effective discipleship ministries. I have been convinced for some time that disciples are made in relationship and that all our classes, programs, etc., should really just serve as catalysts for intentionally disciple-making relationships.
But how do you do that? How do you shape that culture in a local church? What spiritual and administrative infrastructure needs to be in place for this kind of transformation to occur en masse? "Sticky Church" delves right into the heart of why so much out there on discipleship and small group ministry is missing the mark and failing to substantially transform lives, churches, and communities. Larry Osborne does not just pull the curtain back on alot of small group ministry myths, he presents a holistic, functional, and beautifully simple model for long term fruitfullness in ministry by focusing peoples attention on the bible and upon meaningful relationships. And he breaks the process down step by step!
Go read Coleman's "The Master Plan of Evangelism" and Henrichsen's "Disciples Are Made Not Born" - and then read this amazing little gem to learn how to translate an individual passion for disciplemakning into the very dna of your church.
