BEST PRACTICES

 

  1. Be a champion. Our weekly Huddle Guide’s effectiveness is based on your willingness to be a champion for it with the teams you lead.
  2. Go first. Apply the weekly message to your own life first and from that you will be able to lead your team into a healthy discussion on their own application.
  3. Hear for others. As leaders, practice hearing the weekend message not just for you, but to those you are leading and for the disconnected people God puts in your path.
  4. Be prepared. Review the weekly Huddle Guide prior to leading a team. The anointing is in the preparation—your preparation could be the key to unlocking freedom in those you lead.
  5. Be consistent. Commit to consistently implementing the Huddle Guide with your team.
