General Description

A Core Team is a group of 2 to 5 spiritual leaders who shepherds a Small Group in order to fulfill the Great Commandment and the Great Commission.

A spiritual leader is someone who is characterized by the following habits:

  • Practices personal soul care
  • Pursues life-giving relationships
  • Proclaims the Gospel through words and deeds
  • Produces good fruit that endures
  • Provides spiritual companionship to others

A Small Group is any of the following:

  • Share Group
  • Study Group
  • HEALTH Group
  • HELP Group
  • Task Group
  • LIFE Group
  • LEAD Group

The Great Commandment is found in Mark 12:28-34 and the Great Commission is found in Matthew 28:19-20. The Great Commandment is the relational aspect while the Great Commission is the task aspect of the overall ministry of Core Teams. Both are important goals.
