Chapter 3 researched different models, examples, and principles for small groups. Chapter 4 was a week-by-week explanation of the fifteen-week project. Chapter 5 offered the strengths, weaknesses, and reflections from the project. The fifteen-week project was an initial step for church planting in the future.
