POSTURE OF A LEADER

WHY IS A LEADER’S POSTURE IMPORTANT?

The effectiveness of a small group in helping people grow in their relationship with Jesus is connected to whether or not a leader’s posture is one of humility, teachability, curiosity and intentionality.

BEST PRACTICES:

Your group members do not expect you to have all the answers. They do expect you to care about who they are and have a desire to help them to grow.

HUMILITY

Humility is the result of a strong relationship with Jesus and understanding that ultimately he brings the growth and change we want for ourselves and others.

TEACHABILITY

Teachability is a spirit that says, “I will constantly learn about myself, others, and God; so God can use me in new and different ways.”

CURIOSITY

Curiosity is a genuine interest and concern for others.

INTENTIONALITY

Intentionality is viewing each interaction in the group as an opportunity to invest in the lives of others and to grow as a child of God.
