How Do You Know If You Are Succeeding As A Leader?

At our Group Leader Kickoff on Sunday, January 7th, we addressed an important question we as leaders should know how to answer, "How do you know if you are succeeding as a Group Leader?"

In short, we know we are succeeding when we are helping our Group Members experience Biblical Community - aka the ABCs: Applying the Bible, Building relationships, and Caring for each other.

Whenever we see our group members living out the ABC's, that is success!

The best way to help our Group Members live out the ABC's is by practicing the 6 Group Leader Essentials (See below). These are 6 essentials that we as leaders can't go without!

Which of these 6 Essentials do you need to work on? Identify one, review it, and make a goal to improve this trimester.
