God has
provided people all around us with spiritual gifts that often go unrecognized
and unused throughout the best years for their effective ministries. Each is
especially gifted by the Creator for making small group Bible studies larger.
In Making the Little Much, author Dr. David F. Felsburg shows how to find,
identify, develop, and use these special people to prepare small groups for
exceptional growth.
Dr. Felsburg
describes the adult small group growth ministry and includes detailed job
descriptions and functional insights for each leadership position in those
small groups. He also examines a biblical model in considering all the
necessary ministries a leader might implement for the small group members;
shows how the successful group can become a breeding place for the development
of future leaders in administration, outreach, social connectivity, and small
group leadership; and considers the natural temptation for the leader to burn
out by ministering to a larger group than he should. Making the Little Much
also offers techniques for maintaining the discussion and learning advantages
of the interactive small group while allowing its size to grow significantly.
In addition to
the adult small group model for growth, Dr. Felsburg provides required detail
for adapting the adult applications to singles, youth, children, pre-school and
cradle roll ministries. In the children's areas, he adds breakthrough
methodologies for determining and applying learning modality preference for
grouping the children to match their learning styles. A unique survey is
included to supply questions or observations of the children to determine their
preferred learning modality.
This study
presents a biblical model for leading small group-Sunday school, church
training, or Bible study-into serious growth for the Lord. Author of
"Talking About Christ - Over the Back Fence" (Xulon Press, 2010),
"How God Gets You Back" (CrossBooks Publishing, 2010) and "Profiling
the Prospect" (CrossBooks Publishing, 2011); Dr. Felsburg mixes careers in
the military, government systems design, executive management, and
entrepreneurial leadership of four companies with a thirty-five-year bi-vocational
pastoral ministry.
