Creating a Place Where People Naturally Connect. The bestselling author of "The Search to Belong" addresses the forced dynamics of artificial small groups that churches seem too focused on developing and helps leaders create more natural congregational community environments.
Community is a fundamental life search and one of the key aspects people look for in a congregation. But community can't be forced, controlled, or easily created. The problem, says Joseph R. Myers, is that churches are too focused on developing programs instead of concentrating on environments where community will spontaneously emerge. Organic Community challenges key leaders to become environmentalists--people who create or shape environments. Outlining nine organizational tools for creating a healthy environment, Myers shows readers how to diagnose their current situation and implement patterns that will develop possibilities for healthy communities.
