That thesis eventually became a book, entitled Groups that Revitalize: Bringing New Life to Your Church through Sermon-Based Small Groups, co-authored with Kenneth Priest.
Alan is passionate about the amazing discipleship opportunities doing sermon based small groups provides for any church … especially for churches that are committed to expositional Bible teaching.
This podcast presents the case for sermon based groups, as an effective way to kill several birds with one stone. Biblical fellowship can be a result, along with a much deeper dive into Sunday’s teaching. This will enliven the Sunday morning pulpit experience, giving it an even greater sense of purpose in the heart of the pastor-teacher.
Alan is also passionate about church revitalization. Sermon based small groups can play a major role in that happening as well.
