This is the
resource for any church looking to expand through community groups—an alternative type of small group that reaches smaller settings. With less overhead and more mobility, community groups harness a combination of evangelism and ethics reminiscent of John Wesley’s class meetings. In Living the Five
, authors Jim and Jennifer Cowart show you how successful community groups are called to live out five principles and share how they applied these principles when creating community groups in their own church. Includes a combination Participant/Leader Guide. Also available is a five-session DVD, which is packaged in bundles of 10 for churches to give to their community-group hosts.
Each community group is oriented to live out five declarative principles:
1. You can’t do life alone.
2. Growing people change.
3. Saved people serve people.
4. Found people find people.
5. Worship is a lifestyle.
