This research paper is the result of a core literature review of more than 20 books, articles and websites in the area of small group ministry, spanning the decades from the 1980’s through to the current day. Much of the material is not only supported by anecdotal evidence but also reflects my own ideas and convictions from over 20 years of leading small groups and training small group leaders. The findings of the paper were confirmed and complemented by a field study questionnaire I specifically designed to correlate with the research framework used in the literature review.
The paper is by no means designed to be an exhaustive analysis but has been kept concise for the purposes of the project.
The material has been an attempt to integrate orthodoxy and orthopraxis in the area of small group ministry.Back to resources
