As you may have heard, at Logan Leadership we’re rereleasing Finding the Flow: A Guide for Leading Small Groups and Gatherings by Tara Miller and Jenn Peppers. Want to see what a few others have thought about the book? Check out these reviews… paying special attention to mine at the bottom, of course:

Finding the Flow“The first thing you need to know about Finding the Flow is that the book is not prescriptive. What you will find is a grouping of philosophies and skills that center on the foundational elements of Christian community: self-reflection, the stages of group life, listening skills, asking good questions, navigating conflict, developing leaders, and spiritual transformation. Each chapter of the book covers one of these key ideas. Miller and Peppers effectively use stories to illustrate the issues and skills they find most important.” –Sam O’Neal,


“Miller and Peppers write about leading a small group in a very deep, thoughtful way. If you love to read or you have a small group leader who loves to read, this book will knock your socks off.” –Randall Neighbour (


“An interactive, conversational and engaging guide to empower and equip group leaders, helping them create life-changing environments that produce passionate followers of Christ.” –Bill Donahue, pastor of leadership development, Willow Creek Community Church and author of Leading Life-Changing Small Groups


“Community doesn’t come with a manual. But if it’s experience and wisdom you’re looking for, Miller and Peppers have a ton of it. Using real-life examples, solid relationship principles and hands-on exercises, Finding the Flow explores the dynamics of gatherings that thrive versus survive, and the facilitation practices that can help make the difference.” –Sally Morgenthaler, contributor to An Emergent Manifesto of Hope


Finding the Flow is a helpful book written by two practitioners who have lived and breathed small groups in their local church. This book will help every current or prospective leader of small groups be more effective. This is must-reading for small group leaders!” –Jim Tomberlin, founder, Third Quarter Consulting, former regional pastor, Willow Creek Community Church

And of course– from me…

“Practical yet profound. Finding the Flow is a necessary companion for anyone involved in small group leadership and development.” –Bob Logan
