Do You Belong to a Work-Faith Peer Group?
In my opening message I talk about how valuable peer groups are in helping you do great work with great faith, which is the main way the Church influences culture. Peer groups are especially important to both work and faith formation when they’re done well. It is important for them to have an overall focus. A Core Purpose of a group is a great way to achieve this focus. A Core Purpose is different from a mission or a vision. A Core Purpose is the groups primary on-going outcome the members want to achieve as a result of their meeting. A Core Purpose around faith and work should include both faith and work and be expressed in less than three words, and no more than five words, and should never include the word BY. For example- Living God’s Word Daily. Become Disciples. Multiply God’s Kingdom Daily
For instance at God’s Work in Progress, our core purpose is “great work with great faith.” That drives everything we do and want to help you achieve that every day.
As I said on the TIP segment this week on the show, I have also developed a single page set of “Guidelines” to help you in managing a group. The guidelines will work in any small group setting. Email me here to get a free copy-
