Coaching Points for Group Leaders 8 – The Foundation: Church

Looking Back (20 Minutes)

  1. Accountability–Love Does
    • What is the one thing you DID every day last week to live out the will of God?
  2. Connecting Relationally (Optional)
    • If you know that a group member is going through a major life event, then feel free to ask them about it.
    • Otherwise, on occasion, you may want to also ask the group, “What is one thing you are celebrating that happened last week or one place you saw God show up?”

Looking Up (20 Minutes)

  1. Discussion Questions:  Prayerfully ask the Holy Spirit to guide you in determining which of the discussion questions you will ask your group members.
  2. Note:  You may want to think about asking a particular question to a particular person (or persons) in your group based on what you know of their story or what God is doing in their lives.  Also, remember to include and draw in members of the group who are less talkative than others.

Looking Forward (20 Minutes)

  1. Practice
  2. Goal-Setting:  LOVE DOES
    • Develop a plan to find a local church.  If you need help, ask members of your group.  Set some accountability around finding a local church.
    • If you already attend a local church, then discuss your plan to get involved.
  3. Vision-Casting
  4. Prayer
