For those of you who couldn’t make it, here’s a recap of what we talked about last Thursday: We believe each of us are called to be and to make disciples of Christ. Making disciples of Christ can take many forms, but in all cases requires dedication and preparation. This year we are going to dedicate our Thursday nights at house church to preparing and practicing spiritual leadership with the ultimate goal of making/maturing disciples of Jesus. Think of the next 6 to 9 months as a “discipleship training and equipping”. As a result, we are anticipating the makeup of our current house church changing in the coming year either by sending out people as we’ve done previously, birthing a new house church, etc. What we have is too valuable to keep it to ourselves. We will have some resources for each of you for preparation and as a future reference. This past Thursday we talked about the core competencies of CG laid out in the house church leader manual.
This Thursday we will be revisiting the topic of personal soul care. As preparation for our time together, please read this article. It’s written to those who are pastors and clergy, but the principles easily apply to all of us who are following Christ.
We’ll be meeting at Brian and Lisa’s this week. 7PM as usual. Karey will have our benediction.
Let us know if you have any questions.
