Top 10 Questions
These self-evaluating questions were developed with the intention of giving group leaders a compass to make sure they were staying on track with helping a group to connect, learn, and serve together so it could impact the world with the love of Christ:
- Does every person in my group feel that I care for them and know how to contact me for help?
- Does each person have a friend in the group that shares a common interest or life stage?
- Did our last new person feel welcomed and included in our group and within our friendships?
- Is each person in my group reading their Bible and praying everyday?
- Am I including God’s Word and prayer in our group meetings and communications?
- Are most of the people in my group learning more of God’s Word each week? If not, is there a good reason why?
- Is everyone in my group regularly serving in ministry?
- Does each person in my group know their God-given gifts and understands how they are using them to build the church?
- As a community, are we serving together at least once a semester outside our regular rhythm of meetings?
