This is installment 10 of a series of posts in which friends and small groups ministry partners share their thoughts on Small Group Vital Signs. Today, Brian Jones:
“One of the best books out today to help you build a flourishing small group’s ministry in your church! I can’t wait to get this resource in the hands of all of our leaders.”
Brian and I have been connected numerous times and in numerous ways over the last twenty-some years. Back in the late ’90s, Brian and I met to discuss the possibility of me coming on board with him to help plant Christ’s Church of the Valley. My wife, Heidi, and I were not ready quite yet to be in full-time ministry and plant a church. But I knew I really liked this guy and would love to work with him more. In 2006, I was the project editor of the Group Member Discussion Guide for his book, Second Guessing God. In 2009, Brain asked me to coach his new director of group life, Alyssa Dourte. In 2011, I asked Brian to come speak at the Cincinnati Christian University Small Group Conference, where he closed out the conference with a bang.
Thanks, Brian, for your partnership in ministry over the years. And thanks for your kind words about Small Group Vital Signs.
