Gene Getz wrote in his book, Sharpening the Focus of the Church:
Believers need...three vital experiences to grow into mature Christians. They need good Bible teaching that will give them theological and spiritual stability; they need deep and satisfying relationships both with each other and with Jesus Christ; and they need to experience seeing people come to Jesus Christ as a result of corporate and individual witness to the non-Christian world.We sum up these "three vital experiences" with the words:
While you are re-launching your group this fall, it's a great time to talk to your group about these three foundational activities of a LIFEGroup. Discuss how you are presently accomplishing them, and what you might do this year to better accomplish these vital experiences.
