Why closing the back door of your church is even more important than opening the front door wider.

In Sticky Church, author and pastor Larry Osborne offers a time-tested strategy for doing so: sermon-based small groups that dig deeper into the weekend message and tightly velcro members to the ministry. It's a strategy that enabled Osborne's congregation to grow from a handful of people to one of the larger churches in the nation‚??without any marketing or special programming. Sticky Church tells the inspiring story of North Coast Church's phenomenal growth and offers practical tips for launching your own sermon-based small group ministry.

Topics include:

  • Why stickiness is so important
  • Why most of our discipleship models don't work very well
  • Why small groups always make a church more honest and transparent
  • What makes groups grow deeper and sticker over time
  • Sticky Church is an ideal book for church leaders who want to start or retool their small group ministry‚??and velcro their congregation to the Bible and each other… (more)

    Loved it! Some favorite quotes:
    "serve our people so well that they'll want to bring their friends, without needing to be asked to do so"

    The sticky church paradigm is not primarily about church growth. It's about church health. It's not about hoarding people or refusing to release them to ministry and mission. It's simply about keeping them connected to the church long enough to fulfill the second half of the Great Commission: "Teaching them to obey all things I have commanded you." ( )

    In this simple introduction to the philosophy and practice of sermon-based small groups, Osborne wants to help churches "close the back door" - as churches often fail to integrate visitors and new members into the life and ministry of the church. The Sticky Church (via sermon-based small groups) attempts to bond believers to what they need most: scripture and one another. Osborne presents a compelling vision. A- ( )
