5 Small Shifts to Transform Your Small Group Ministry [Podcast]

A silver bullet that would guarantee that everyone in your church would be in a biblical Acts 2 kind of small group where people would grow to love God deeply, where lives would be radically transformed, the marginalized would be served, and non-Christians all around them would come to faith in Christ every day?  As anyone who has been in ministry for longer than a day knows, there are no quick fixes. Our guest Daniel Im, wrote a terrific new book called, “No Silver Bullets” which lays out 5 microshifts that can produce macro changes, lasting movement in the right direction for your groups ministry and church.
