Every leader needs someone to come alongside them with words of truth and wisdom to encourage, admonish, and help them in their life and leadership. Biblically, that’s the on-going discipleship process. A Community Director is a mentor of Community Group Leaders that can do just that, by engaging in intentional Gospel conversation with focused discussions about a leader’s personal, relational, spiritual and leadership life.
- Regular, consistent, but informal meetings together (monthly or bi-monthly)
- Transparent, Spirit-led conversations
- Guidance in a personal plan for spiritual growth
- Encouragement in the vision for PV Community Groups
The most important investment we can make in a Community Group Leader is to ensure that they are being poured into through a mentoring/discipling relationship. The Community Director is there to support the group leader as a disciple of Jesus, first, and as a group leader, second.
Community Directors are not just there to “keep tabs” on leaders and their group; and they’re not just “coaches” who give advice on how to lead a group better. They are Spiritual Directors with the heart of a shepherd who value the leaders they are privileged to invest in, and who desire to develop a personal relationship of trust and mutual encouragement.
