YouthMin.org and EverythingPastor.com are partnering together to form the Growth Network. The idea for the Growth Network is to provide pastors with a place to connect with other pastors over Google+ Hangouts. The purpose? We want to provide a small group of pastors for pastors to talk about how Scripture relates to them.
As pastors, we realize that sometimes the majority of our Bible reading can be geared towards message preparation and answering questions for others. In the process, we can stop applying the Gospel message to our own lives. Our Google+ Hangouts will be a place for us to talk about how scripture relates to our own personal lives. Here are the details:
Please indiciate your role on our sign-up page. We will be creating the groups based off of your ministry role.
Eventually, we would like to have groups of about 5-8 pastors, however, for this Charter Group, we are looking at keeping it around 6 Pastors, and we are looking for people who would be willing to partner with us and lead a group in the future.
Our first group will read Colossians.
We’ll connect once a week (during off hours) for four weeks. The day will be determined by the group.
- Leave your “pastor voice” at the office. We’re all Pastors here, we don’t need you to preach to us. These groups are not outlets for you to save us, we are simply looking for community and accountability when needed.
- Keep the dogs chained up. We’re strictly talking about how scripture relates to our personal lives not trying to convert other pastors to our point of view. If you’re dogmatic, please don’t apply.
- What is talked about in the group stays in the group.
- You cannot miss any meetings unless a family emergency arises.
