I'm fortunate to be surrounded by a staff who makes small groups for kids and teenagers a priority. That's why the principles discussed in Creating a Lead Small Culture resonate so deeply with our church. This is a timely work that provides a much needed blueprint for churches everywhere who believe kids and teenagers should be a priority in their ministry.
Mark Batterson, New York Times best-selling author and lead pastor, National Community Church --OrangeBooks.com
After 14 years as a lead pastor, I'm convinced more than ever that a healthy church is built around making small groups a priority. If you don't connect kids and teenagers relationally with great leaders, you will sabotage the future and faith of a generation. That's why Creating a Lead Small Culture is such an important book for your team. It's a one-of-a kind manual to help every church create environments where kids can find a place to belong and someone who believes in the potential of their faith to change the world.
Perry Noble, senior pastor, Newspring Church --OrangeBooks.com
Creating a Lead Small Culture gives you more than just random ideas to help you do small groups better. It promotes proven strategies that actually work. If you are serious about discipleship and want to build a team of adults who invest weekly in teenagers, you need this book. So read it carefully, and get ready to rethink how you do student ministry. I learned a lot!

We have been able to create systems and organize ourself in a way that truly supports growing and thriving groups. We are super excited to see how God will use what we've learned in "Creating A Lead Small Culture" to see kids and students connect with God, and others.
