One of the most significant and enduring contributions made to the church by the early Methodist movement was the implementation of small groups for discipleship.
George Whitefield, the greatest evangelist of the First Great Awakening, commented on this practice, “My Brother [John] Wesley acted wisely, the souls that were awakened under his ministry he joined in class [small groups], and thus preserved the fruits of his labor. This I neglected, and my people are a rope of sand.”
We have rediscovered small groups according to Wesley’s pattern, included Norman Grubb’s keys for continuous revival, and added new truths based on Full Stature principles on how to forgive, deal with bitter roots, and receive inner transformation—Small Groups that Go Deep: A New Approach.
