A basic introduction to facilitating the building block for a Disciple Making Movement in your neighborhood, city, and world.
In the following slides you will learn the basic steps to facilitating the discovery process. You will learn how to facilitate and help others facilitate this process that is known as a discovery group.
It is crucial that you ask each question every time that the group meets as it is the DNA that will produce replication within the group's relational network.
Let's get started!
What are you thankful for this week?
Everyone has something they can be thankful for
Let everyone in the group share
cultivate an attitude of thankfulness
What is stressing you out today?
Narrow the focus, ask, "what is one thing?"
let everyone share
try not to dwell on stresses
identify needs of the group members for ministry opportunity
how can we meet one another's needs, or do you know someone with a need that this group can meet?
How & Why
We want to meet the needs of the group as a group...not only the facilitator meeting the needs of the group
Don't make it heavy or labor intensive or it will die out...meet practical needs
Simple acts say a lot and go a long way towards developing this culture
We value helping others and ministering to their felt needs in and outside of our group
Spawns replication through new relationships
Together, we can be the answer to prayer for someone
Jesus wants us to partner with Him to make a difference in our world
What does god say?
how & Why
Read the designated passage out loud two times (two different versions of the Bible if available)
Have one person re-tell it in their own words, then let everyone from the group add in any parts that were missing
Possible guided questions to regain the group's attention, simply ask, "What does this tell us about... God - Man - God's Plan
we are hearing and learning from God
retelling the passage in our own words helps us to retain the story to retell it to others
Building a collective understanding of the passage helps us to remember more and learn quicker
