Publisher's Summary

Small Groups That Succeed
Small groups are the key to impacting lives in your church. But a healthy small-group environment - one that fosters meaningful, lasting connections - doesn't just happen. So pull up a chair. Let's talk about how to make it happen.
Bill Willits and best-selling author Andy Stanley share their successful approach, which has resulted in nearly 8,000 adults becoming involved in small groups at North Point Community Church in Atlanta . Simply put, the five principles clearly described here have passed the test. This is not just another book about community; this is a book about strategy - strategy that builds a small-group culture.
Creating Community shares clear and simple principles to help people connect into meaningful relationships. The kind God desires for each of us. The kind he uses to change our lives. Put this proven method to work in your ministry, and enjoy the tangible results - God's people doing life together.
"The small-group program at North Point Community Church is not an appendage; it is not a program we tacked on to an existing structure. It is part of our lifestyle. We think groups. We organize groups. We are driven by groups. Creating Community contains our blueprint for success. And I believe it has the potential power to revolutionize your own small-group ministry!" (Andy Stanley, Story Behind the Book)
Creating Community flows out of the North Point Community Church story. The message here is not just some new small-group program but reflects a passion lived out and implemented in their church from the very beginning. Even with phenomenal growth, the church has stayed true to its commitment to small groups and has fine-tuned its ministry process into one of the most unique and effective models in churches today.

I liked it. The author lays out a solid foundation without giving you step by step how to. He leaves room for you to make it your own.

Compacted, Simple & Transforming

This material is so well laid out and honest. Many of the things I've questioned and wrestled with were wonderfully turned back to God with simple questions. This book was like picking the brain of North Point community leaders with better questions than I'd have. Thanks for putting this resource out.
