Suggested Reading

The Class Meeting The Class Meeting: Reclaiming a Forgotten (and Essential) Small Group Experience is a guide to the theory of the Wesley class meeting, an essential element of truly Wesleyan  spirituality. This book aids in the development of a deeper discipleship. The class meeting is  made workable without losing its essential  dynmic as a gospel-based accountable community.  Author Kevin Watson has resurrected the class meeting and given it new meaning, showing its  relevance for the church today and how it may be a perfect means for church renewal.  Amazon.com

When Helping Hurts When Helping Hurts is a study of poverty alleviation and ministry to those in need. Emphasizing  the poverty of both heart and society, it definces poverty as more than a simply a lack of financial  or material resources and that it takes much more than donations and handouts to solve the  problem of poverty.While this book exposes past and current development efforts that churches have engaged in which unintentionally undermine the people they're trying to help, its central point is to provide proven strategies that challenge Christians to help the poor empower themselves.   Amazon.com
