Publisher's Description

In Sticky Church, author and pastor Larry Osborne makes the case that closing the back door of your church is even more important than opening the front door wider. He offers a time-tested strategy for doing so: sermon-based small groups that dig deeper into the weekend message and tightly velcro members to the ministry. It’s a strategy that enabled Osborne’s congregation to grow from a handful of people to one of the larger churches in the nation—without any marketing or special programming. Sticky Church tells the inspiring story of North Coast Church’s phenomenal growth and offers practical tips for launching your own sermon-based small group ministry. Topics include: Why stickiness is so important Why most of our discipleship models don’t work very well Why small groups always make a church more honest and transparent What makes groups grow deeper and sticker over time Sticky Church is an ideal book for church leaders who want to start or retool their small group ministry—and velcro their congregation to the Bible and each other

    Our HOME Group ministry was floundering and visionless until one of my leaders gave me and our pastor this book. 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!

    This book is another example of innovation on the part of Christian leaders. If "Big Days" and big events leave you exhausted without impacting maturity or consistency in your attendance. This may be what you are looking for.

    Engaging. Transparent. This is an open, honest discussion of what pastors deal with, and hope with some practical paths to making eternal, transformational truth stick in the Christ-follower's life.

    I 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.

    Good commonsense wisdom on small groups. The author speaks from years of practical experience. Read this one before you read the others.
