Home Group Leader Resources
This page is designed and updated just for Home Group Leaders - so we hope you find it helpful in role as a leader at Harpeth. First, thank you for facilitating a group every week and helping us fulfill our mission of making biblical disciples just like Jesus did.
Remember that your primary role in your group is just that - to make disciples of Jesus. This role is a huge responsibility and privilege. We don't have to invent clever methods on how todo this because Jesus has already shown us how. To make disciples we must decide to follow Him in His footsteps. He spent time with them, He modeled what he was saying, He empowered them to do things, He supported them as they stepped out in faith, He expected obedience and fruit. Discipleship is simply following the overall life of Jesus and invting others to do the same.
All of the home groups will be going through a video series called Jesus 101 for the first 9 weeks of the season. Our official launch date for groups to begin is September 9th. Each video is approx 15-30 minutes long, so this will allow plenty of time for discussion and prayer afterward. If your group prefers, everyone can watch them from home prior to the meeting which will allow for more discussion time. After your group has completed the 9 videos, we encourage you to join the church in a 5 day a week reading plan called Essestial Jesus. The curriculum will use one of these readings as the primary text for the small group each week.
Please refer to the Discipleship Journal for more more information. Also, please feel free to contact your Community Deacon or Jim Harris with any other questions.
