How Do We Communicated And Stay Connected?
This can vary by group, but we’ve found forming a Facebook group can be a great tool to keep communication at the forefront about food, location, childcare, and needs. Email and text can also work, depending on the group’s preferences, as well as apps like GroupMe. Often, it’s a mix of all of them! Whatever works for your group, one thing is certain: consistent communication is vital for every Home Church.
How Do I Lead A Home Church?
For a lot of people, the thought of leading any type of group can be intimidating. That’s why we want to make leadership as accessible as possible, while also equipping you with the necessary tools to discern how best to build community and growth together.
As you journey into leading a Home Church, it can be hard to know where to start.
Here’s a simple checklist to help move the process forward.
What kind of group is God calling you to lead?
What will be the focus? Who does he want you to include?
We all have people in our lives who we can invite into our group.
Who are the natural relationships you already have?
Start to reach out and gauge people’s interest.
When will you meet? Where will you meet?
Will it be at someone’s house or apartment? Or at a local establishment?
What best works for those involved?
Who in your group can help share the load of leading and logistics?
What areas of weakness do you have that someone else would
be able to compensate for and lead alongside you?
How will our group communicate?
Social media? Text? Email? Messaging apps? Phone calls?
Discuss the best & most consistent form of keeping in touch.
