SPANISH EDITION. Without question, things are different in the local church today than they were a few years ago. We are in an unprecedented competition for people's time, energy, and attention. Yet some things remain the same--like the ability of Sunday School and small group ministries to successfully attract, keep, and nurture believers. Of course, it is dependent on your teachers to make their classes or groups exciting, to meet the needs--both real and felt--of the current generation of seekers. Follow a typical family as they progress from being casual seekers to actively involved in Kingdom ministry. Through their story, you'll challenge your teachers' common assumptions from a new vantage point and look at vital principles for creating an effective small group. You and your staff will be surprised at how easy it is to incorporate these ideas into your teaching. And your growing classes will be delighted that you're giving them what they want: good relationships, biblical teaching that will affect their lives, and a place where they feel like they belong.
