Sample Tips

"At least once a year, spend an entire meeting giving members the opportunity to assess their own spiritual health. Encourage honesty and authenticity. Ask each other, "Where are you strong and where do you need to grow?" Allow some time for members to work on an individual health plan and to map out a strategy for their spiritual growth."
"In a pocket-sized notebook, the group leader keeps the first names of unchurched friends for each member of the group. On a daily basis, they pray for the member to have spiritual conversations with unchurched friends and for the Holy Spirit’s activity in the heart of the unchurched. Each member and their friends get a page in the notebook. Specific prayer requests are noted here, as well as hobbies and interests of the unchurched person for relational “cross-pollination” with other members in the group.

This notebook keeps evangelism at the top of mind for group leaders and their members…and when they visit with group members they can pray with them about seeing a breakthrough in the life of that unbeliever."
"Have group members play the question game. The rules are you play with a partner. Each person must attempt to carry on the conversation by only asking questions. If you make a statement you lose.

For example Player1 “Do you want to play the question game?”

Player2 “Why do you want to play that?”

Player1 “Because it is fun”

Player1 loses." This notebook keeps evangelism at the top of mind for group leaders and their members…and when they visit with group members they can pray with them about seeing a breakthrough in the life of that unbeliever."
