What is a Life Transformation Group?
A LTG is a group of 3-5 people (men with men, women with women) who meet to help each other become internally strong and be externally focused.
What happens in a Life Transformation Group?
The group decides when they will meet, where they will meet, and how often they meet. Often the LTG will meet the same day or night the Missional Community group meets. After a time of gathering with the larger Missional Community group where conversation centers around topics like the Sunday sermon and prayer for group members, we break into smaller groups of 3-5. We call these groups Life Transformation Groups where we grow in Christlikeness by inhaling truth, exhaling sin, and praying for others.
How does a Life Transformation Group work?
Step 1 – Begin by asking: Did you do the reading? Why or why not? These questions are asked with no judgment but rather to encourage us to read God’s word.
Step 2 – How did God encourage, correct, or convict you through the reading of His Word? (2 Timothy 3:16)
Step 3 – Review the accountability questions. Pick 1 or 2 that you need to discuss with the group. Be honest, be daring, be willing to be vulnerable. Confession is good for all of us. (James 5:16)
Step 4 – Share who you are praying for and any opportunities you’ve had to demonstrate the gospel in words or actions.
Life Transformation Groups help us grow in Christlikeness together. But often we don’t make or take the time to grow in our love and knowledge of God. Neil Cole in his book Cultivating a Life for God says, “When I get busy, I tend to forget the most important reason why I’m here, my prime directive – to make more and better disciples (Matthew 28:18-20)!” This is why we want everyone committing and connecting with a Missional Community where we intentionally gather because spiritual growth doesn’t just happen, we need a plan and we need one another!
