Getting to Know You

October 19, 2007 | Comments Off on Getting to Know You

Pastor Paul Irwin writes in The ZoneGathering that building relationships is the best way to deal with challenging group members. He discusses ways to care for group members, especially in developing openness and closeness through a variety of types of questions, including:

Discovery Questions
In-Depth Story-Telling
Current Updates
Weekly Reports
Affirming Each Other

Great article, Paul. Challenging people are usually relationship deficient and anything we can do to enfold them in community will positively impact their ability to function both in our groups and in life in general.
