BANDS

ANYONE WHO CLAIMS TO BE IN CHRIST

MUST WALK AS JESUS WALKED.

WALK TOGETHER WITH YOUR BAND.

Walk out the Word, in dependence on the Spirit, and with one another.

A band is 3-5 people committing to walk as Jesus walked together.
Bands read together, pray together, and meet together to ask one another 3 questions.
In doing this, their goal is become like Jesus and have the impact Jesus had on others.

Who do I band with?

Bands are best with people who want to become like Jesus and you trust to share with.

Look for people who want to become like Jesus and have the impact Jesus had on others.
Look for who you trust to (1) walk out the Word with you, (2) share honestly and respect what you share honestly, (3) meet consistently.
Bands are typically not a mixed group of men and women so that everyone can share openly and honestly.
This allows everyone to share in the band meeting and feel safe to share transparently. We know that confession of sin may be difficult in a mixed setting. But by banding with others of your gender, shame can be shed and truth can be told as you walk after Jesus together.
Bands are typically 3-5 members total but should quickly divide if they grow to more than 5.
This allows everyone to share in the band meeting and keep the time manageable for everyone. More importantly, dividing the band allows new disciples to join in — making this a multiplying disciple movement like Jesus intended.
