10 Commandments of Small Group leading

1- Keep yourself pure. Right heart, attitude, motives, actions, speech and expectations! I tim. 5:22

2- Come Ready. Be there early, Be prayed up, read up (bible) and ready with a plan.

3- Pray Before You Say. Speak only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs.

4- Don’t dominate or be dominated. Interact.

5- Love those in your group more than you expect from them. Invest into their lives by Loving them and knowing about them. Contact them outside of group setting. (FB- twitter, phone, email ect.) Seek them out!

6- Don’t tolerate negativity. In yourself or your group. Choose Joy! Smile!

7- Incorporate Jesus and The Word Of God into every mentoring moment! Small groups should inspire people to grow closer to God!

8- Have fun. laugh. play. inspire.

9- As a leader, at minimum do what you are asking your group to do. God is a REWARDER of those who diligently seek Him. Be ready to live out the words… follow me as I follow Christ.

10- You must be a Disciple before you make disciples. You can only be a great leader if you are first a great follower. Submit to your leadership willingly … Pure Heart issue.
