Being part of a small group can be a bit like climbing a mountain—it has risks but the payoff is immense. That is why Trent, Cox, and Tooker have styled this second book in the Leading From Your Strengths series like a mountain climbing expedition. Just like climbing Mount Everest, climbing the mountain to intimacy in your small group involves five stages, or camps. You begin at your “base camp” commitment, and then move through the various stages of honesty, acceptance, closeness, and finally the mountain’s peak of intimacy. Once again, the Ministry Insights team will be your expedition guide on your climb as you learn to leverage your strengths for effective and successful small group experiences.
