JGLM Life Teams Overview
What comes next after you have been through a DHT? Life Teams!
What better place to begin to work out the new things you have learned in the DHT than in a small group setting like a Life Team? Being a part of a Life Team has many wonderful benefits that will help you grow in your faith and be involved in the work of the ministry.
Life Teams are weekly meetings held in believers homes that include: fellowship, worship, Bible teaching, prayer, and outreach opportunities, all with the message of hope, healing, and victory that has characterized John G. Lake Ministries. Acts 2:42, Acts 2:46
Life Teams provide a safe, relaxed spiritual environment for believers to grow in God and His Word while they are being equipped for the ministry. What better place to begin to work out callings and giftings in the Lord than in a small group setting, learning how to step out in spiritual gifting, learning inter- relational skills and how to minister to others. Ephesians 4:11-12
People who are involved with Life Teams often grow into a close supportive family while they share life’s experiences and learn how to apply what they are learning in the Bible to daily life. Gathering with your Life Team on a weekly basis lends an opportunity for edification and greatly enhances your spiritual growth. Acts 5:42
You will also be encouraged to become doers of the Word and be used of the Lord both as a blessing and a testimony to the local community as you step out in ministry together into your local neighborhood, reaching out to people on a continual basis in order to lead them to Jesus. Joel 3:13-14, Exodus 18:13-25, Matthew 9:37
We believe every Christian is born again complete in Christ Jesus, and that while a certain degree of adolescent growth occurs by hearing and studying the Bible, to grow into a mature spiritual child of God there must be a consistent doing of that which is being heard and studied. There is no such thing as a mature Christian that is only a hearer of the Word of God and is not a doer of the Word. Life Teams help hearers become doers.
