THE PLAYBOOK GUIDE
Every team requires a captain. The Team Community Captain is responsible to communicate with the pastor(s) and reveal the groups strategies, “plays,” and activities.
The pastor(s) provides resources and strength to the captain and team.
- The team meets (at home, church, Starbucks, or other) to unify in one another burdens & vision into the EVPC mission. The contacts and options are to be discussed.
- There will also be commitment/accountability for each and every member that will be agreed upon among the members.
- Pray for each member.
- Ask God to open doors of relationship and opportunity with needy souls.
- Pray that they will be available to cultivate relationships of opportunity.
- Ask God to give them courage and stamina to strengthen others team members.
- Each team member will teach their respective invitees a salvation-based Bible study in preparation for the Big Sunday event.
- It might even be possible to introduce your team members to the guest through a Bible study, fellowship, or another creative method. This will also allow your guest to begin developing relationships within the church before they even get to church.
- On the Sunday of the “Big Service Event” (ie: Friends Day, Easter Sunday, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Christmas, etc) your whole team will bring their guest!
- Team members will commit to provide transportation for guests (as needed) for that service.
- Each team member will make sure their guest(s) feels welcome and gets connected to Guest Services, and a few other people with whom they might relate.
- During the church service, team members will serve as the altar workers for their guests and get them connected to the Altar Ministry Team.
- The team members inform the guest(s) who go to the altar about the Membership 101 Class, show them where the class is held, and maybe even introduce them to the class instructor and help to ensure they attend the following Sunday. You could even offer for one of the team members to accompany them to the first class, if they are nervous about going alone.
- After the “Big Service” the team begins to work with the friends who attended.
- The team will be responsible to teach a Bible Study to the attendee.
- The team will inform/encourage/invite the New Member to events that will strengthen their relationship with God.
- The team will work to set an appointment with the pastor(s) of the church for the new member to meet.
- The team will work in harmony with members in training ministry and the Members in training Care Pastor to strengthen their walk with God.
- The team will have meetings / fellowship / devotions including team members to strengthen the member-in-training’s (MIT) walk with God and fellowship with members.
- It is imperative as the member-in-training’s (MIT) grow in God that they grow in relationship with other true Christians
- There will be an ongoing scoreboard of the amount of contacts that teams are working with.
- How many guests have attended a service?
- How many new members have been added?
