Church small groups are powerful. Through small groups, God uses intentional relationships to bring change to people's lives. But it's not always easy to foster a small group environment in the local church. It takes a system to produce disciples, churn out leaders, and compel people to be on mission together through small groups. In "Starting Small: The Ultimate Small Group Blueprint," Ben Reed helps you through the process of putting a small group ministry together. Through this book, you will discover how small groups can be a place where people belong so they can become.

Ben grew up in Tennessee, and still calls it his home. He and his family live just outside of Nashville. Ben is the small groups pastor at Long Hollow, a multi-campus church in the middle-Tennessee area, overseeing the spiritual growth and development of individuals and groups across their 5 campuses. Before that, he was on staff at a church plant called Grace Community Church. His interaction with small groups, recruiting small group leaders, training and shepherding them is broad, and his heart beats for healthy, authentic, biblical, Jesus-focused community. He knows that without a healthy system, you can't replicate what you do with any efficiency. So he's a "systems guy", architecting systems and structures to produce authentic, healthy, vibrant small groups. Ben's first book, Starting Small: The Ultimate Small Group Blueprint, centers on building and sustaining healthy small groups.Review:
