Activate: An Entirely New Approach to Small Groups is an interesting book written by Nelson Searcy and Kerrick Thomas (with Jennifer Dykes Henson). From scheduling team leader meetings to promoting groups to newcomers, the book covers a wide range of specific details on how to make your small group thrive, as they provide many helpful tips for forming and running a small group. My favorite part of the book talked about rethinking small group leaders; I especially liked the subsection that discussed how to “think decentralization, not staff control.” Though books focusing on organizational growth and success can sometimes be dry, this was not the case for Activate; it was a very enjoyable read!
