I would like to hear the thoughts of those who are a part of small group ministry on what they think about multiplication. There seems to be this tension between staying in a group and multiplying them. I hear some say that they won't break up their group because they have grown a strong and deep friendships so they feel safe and can share more intimately. Then I hear about how multiplying can destroy the age-old problem of cliques, naturally invite new people into Bible study, and increase the number of those who are involved.
I would like to hear thoughts from those who have been a part of small group ministry and have done more research than myself.
