• THE VISION:
o To fulfill the Mission of Church.TV by equipping and empowering
it’s members to become “fully devoted followers of Christ”,
through Life Groups.
o Matthew 28:18-20
o Matthew 22:36-40
o Romans 12 – “The Body of Christ”
The Critical Adaptive Challenge:
To foster and sustain an increase in the number of Life Groups effective
in making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world
• The weekend experience has an average of 4,000 attendees each
week.
• There are currently 51 active Life Groups at the church campus with
an average of 12 members of a Life Group.
• There are roughly 3,400 attendees not plugged into a Life Group.
3 Primary areas of effectiveness
o Engaging our members to strive towards making disciples in current
Life Groups (which include children and youth ministries) to draw up
new leadership for multiplication of Life Groups.
o Providing Life Group Mentors who will focus on walking with,
developing, coaching and leading Life Group leaders; they are
influential, goal-setters that inspire the leaders through sharing
Scriptural teaching, academic involvement and accountability
partnership.
o Offering Life Group Leaders training and fostering group maintenance
through Bible study, prayer, idea collection/plan formulation/plan follow
through, and record keeping. Leaders fall under the authority of a
Mentor.
• There is a critical need for an intentional campaign aimed at
widespread inclusion (every man, woman and child) within Life
Groups.
• The campus is in need of more Life Groups and leaders.
• The Life Group team has a need for metrics as a means of
accountability and goal setting.
• The Life Groups have not been effective in keeping up with the
expansive growth of the campus.
• The Call to Action Research indicated that there was a lack of
measures and accountability within the Life Groups.
• The primary elements that drive structure and process
effectiveness are:
1. clarity of responsibility (goal and role clarity);
2. authority to carry out responsibility; and
3. accountability for results
• GROWING
• The need for statistical data regarding growth in Life Group
attendance, the number of Life Groups and multiplication of current
Life Groups.
• ENGAGING PEOPLE
• Engaging our members to lead Life Groups within their spheres of
influence and not just assimilate current church members. Equipping
them for multiple ministries including leadership recruitment, mission
and outreach.
• Inviting and inspiring leaders who will encourage, support and hold
disciples accountable in their walk with Christ.
• Disciples engaged in mission and outreach
• Gifted, equipped and empowered leadership
• Effective, equipped and inspired Mentors for leadership
• Set goals to reach the vision and mission of increasing Life
Groups to over 110 within 6 months, based upon 5 measurable
indicators:
o Disciples in Life Groups (Average Attendance)
o Disciples moving into leadership roles (Number of new leaders
starting a Life Group)
o Disciples making new Disciples (Members of Life Groups
inviting from their spheres of influence and retaining these
invitees)
o Disciples growing in their faith (Number of Life Groups =
Groups that meet regularly to support, encourage and hold one
another accountable in their Christian relationship outside of Life
Group.)
o Disciples engaged in mission (Number of Disciples doing
outreach in the community and in the world.)
• Praying for God’s involvement in this mission of discipleship.
• The Life Groups Project is designed to equip and multiply leaders and to multiply Life
Groups.
• Campus Pastors must be in one accord with regards to implementing the policies and
procedures and must be held accountable for goal setting and the weight of success.
• Contact and gather current Life Group leaders that have a calling for mentorship and
invite them to share in this vision.
• Ask current Life Group Leaders and other teams who they would recommend in their
groups for a Life Group Leadership role.
• Schedule bi-weekly planning with mentors and current/new leaders.
• Commence a month long leadership campaign asking church members to answer their
calling to “Go and make Disciples.” Share the vision with all members; make them
aware of how critical it is to be in a Life Group and encourage them to invite everyone.
• Commence a month long leadership campaign asking church
members to answer their calling to “Go and make Disciples.” Share
the vision with all members; make them aware of how critical it is to
be in a Life Group and encourage them to invite everyone.
• Website with specific resources designed to equip and empower
leaders and mentors as they foster, sustain and nurture their Life
Groups.
• SIMPLE
• USER-FRIENDLY
• EASILY ACCESSIBLE
