H.K.W.H.T.A.- Melchor Ferreyra, President of the Adventist Church in Peru

Evangelism isn’t a department of the church; it is the life of the church. Every church either has life or it doesn’t. Small groups aren’t a method; they are a lifestyle. When members live their lives in small groups, inviting their friends to church and evangelistic meetings, they see a change in themselves and growth in their churches. We want the church to live in small groups and to work in small groups and also to grow in small groups.”

    — Melchor Ferreyra, president of the Adventist Church in Peru, where half of the 630,000 Adventists in the country have been baptized in the last five years since implementing a small group approach to church life. There are now about 12,000 small groups in the Adventist churches of Peru. See more details at http://news.adventist.org/data/2003/07/1060094270/index.html.en  He Knows What He’s Talking About.
