Help for leaders and faciliatators of small groups (cell groups) and home fellowship groups, as well as adult Sunday school class teachers.
Book with practical biblical advice for those starting and leading a Christian marriage ministry, adult Sunday school class or small group .
Many people think they are incapable of leading a group or setting up a marriage ministry. But there's no need to be intimidated. The advice in this Bible based book gives a step-by-step action plan to help you organize and lead Christ-centered studies---whether in a church class, home fellowship group or cell group.
This book shows how to set up and facilitate classes or small groups studying "Marriage by the Book," an eight-book series that helps couples learn and apply the Bible’s practical wisdom to create great marriages. When these books are studied, whether in churches or people’s homes, seemingly hopeless marriages are transformed, and already satisfying marriages are enriched and deepened. That shouldn't be surprising. When we do things the Lord’s way, it works. After all, God invented marriage.

May the Lord bless you as you open the door for men and women to become the husbands and wives God intends them to be.
