This resource guide is designed to support Growth Group leaders as they help group members cope with major issues (from everyday to major crises.)

This guide does not replace the need for professional counseling. Rather, it acts as a resource to support conversations from leaders to their group members about certain topics or conversations that a Growth Group leader may not have been able to foresee.

This guide does not replace pointing group members to our Recovery program but will help the leader with simple steps of action before suggesting Recovery Ministry.  Recovery is designed to help in all of the areas below.

We’ve identified four categories of issues that may arise in your Growth Group:

  1. Emotional

  2. Financial

Each issue is organized into four simple steps of action that will help the group leader in meeting the need of the group member who is struggling:

  1. Notice

  2. Evaluate

  3. Scripture

  4. Direct
