The early Church added people daily. Being in a Group provides a place to invite our friends who don’t know Jesus, since they may find it easier to hang out with you and your friends than coming directly to a church building. Growing in OUT looks like doing activities that allow a seeker to jump in with your group. It’s being aware of the work God is already doing in the people around you, and stepping into partnership with him.
Seeking: Asking questions, from simple curiosity to deep soul-searching.
Receiving: Someone who recognizes Jesus as God and Savior and is growing in the Bible, prayer and community.
Follow: Someone who’s all in, ready to stop negotiating with God and follow wherever He leads.
Produce: Someone with a history of making other disciple-makers, whose life looks like Jesus with a depth of character, competence and fruitfulness.
