Session 9: Church Leadership (Servanthood)

In this session, you will discover the responsibility to develop other leaders and what the Bible has to say about the type of servant-leader that Jesus desires for the church.

Heart of a Leader

  1. What are you learning about abiding in Christ? How are you practicing abiding through His Word, prayer, obedience, PCS, relationships and fellowship?
  2. In what areas of your life do you find it challenging to obey God?
  3. What unresolved conflict do you have?
  4. In what areas are you believing God by faith, beyond your own ability?

Celebration of Faithfulness

  • Share what has happened since the last meeting. Ask them to relate it to goals from the last meeting.

Iron on Iron: Sharpening Myself and Others

Proverbs 27:17 “As iron sharpens iron, one man sharpens another.”

  1. What is going well?
  2. What is not going well? What obstacles are you facing?
  3. What are possible solutions from the other group members?
  4. What do you need to do to add the missing characteristics into each group?
  5. Where will you start a new group or church this month?
