TO PREPARE AND LEAD THE MEETING
Along with listening to the sermon and completing the weekly homework, group leaders also need to be prepared to facilitate the discussion.
TO TRACK PERSONAL PROBLEMS & NEEDS OF GROUP MEMBERS
As a group leader, you will be the first line of spiritual defense in the lives of your group members. It will be your responsibility (along with your host) to keep in touch with the spiritual pulse of your group and the individuals in it. When problems or issues surface in a member’s life, you’ll need to keep in touch and aware of their general condition and progress.
TO COMMUNICATE SPECIAL NEEDS UP-LINE TO YOUR PASTORS
It’s possible that some issues will surface in your group or a member’s life that are beyond your experience, expertise or comfort zone to deal with. In that case, leaders are responsible to communicate up-line to one of the pastors on staff for guidance or additional help.
TO VISIT MEMBERS IN THE HOSPITAL
When a crisis or illness hits, your group needs to spring into action. While your host will take the lead in providing any needed meals or practical help, you as a leader need to be sure that you and others from the group are available for prayer and support as needed.
