Whether your church has a mature small-group ministry or is just starting out, this theme helps you take ministry to the next level. Brett Eastman, pastor of membership at Saddleback Church in Mission Viejo, California, applies Rick Warren's purpose-driven principles to "the smallest form of the church," the small group. Several assessment tools are included to help determine areas of needed growth in your small-group ministry, as well as strengths that can be capitalized on and encouraged.
