I’m blessed to have partnered with many people over the years who have in one way or another shaped my thinking about small groups, community, discipleship, and ministry. I’ve been to the same conferences with many of them, been a part of the same teams and networks, and hung out together over dinner just talking life. I’ve read many of their books, articles, blogs, Facebook posts, and tweets, and perhaps they’ve read some of mine. That’s one of the things I love about small groups ministry: the community of people who are gurus, advocates, cheerleaders, trainers and teachers. We don’t always agree with one another, but we’re definitely all on the same team!

Today, I’m sharing some words from just a few of them about my book, Small Group Vital Signs.

“The only people who should notread Small Group Vital Signs are those who love to sit home in the dark by themselves or are addicted to mediocrity. For everyone else get ready for a tune-up and an upgrade!”
– Thom Corrigan, author of 101 Great Ideas to Create a Caring Group
“At Saddleback, we encourage every member to be a part of a small group and complete our Spiritual Health Assessment and use the Health Planner to grow as a Christ-centered believer. In Small Group Vital Signs, I was pleased to discover a similar approach to group health that any leader can use to lead a life-changing group! The assessment is revealing, the seven vital signs are biblically-based, and Mike’s suggestions to improve each area are grounded in years of practical application.”
– Steve Gladen, Small Groups Pastor, Saddleback Church, and author of Small Groups With Purpose and Leading Small Groups with Purpose


“Don’t mess around. If you want to lead a healthy small group — if you want to see healthy small groups in your church — you need to read this book.”
– Sam O’Neal, content editor for Threads by LifeWay

“Small Groups aren’t the answer. Healthy small groups are. Michael Mack has written the kind of book that you can read today and put into practice tomorrow.
– Adam Workman, Small Group Pastor, LifePoint Church, Reisterstown MD
