Five Key Relational Connections for Every Follower of Christ

SmallGroup

The Christian life is meant to be lived out in relationships. Here are five key relationships for every Christ Follower:

  1. Right Church | My On Mission Family that I pool my gifts, energy, and resources with for the expansion of God’s kingdom.

  2. Small Group | My Circle of 8-12 friends that I grow with and care for on a regular basis.

  3. Prayer Partner(s) | My smaller circle of 2-3 close friends that know my struggles and prayer needs

  4. My Mentor / Spiritual Father(s) or Mother(s)  |  Someone ahead of me in the journey that I can learn from along the path of spiritual fruitfulness.

  5. Mentee / Person(s) I am Discipling  | Someone I’m ahead of in the journey that I can help along the path of spiritual fruitfulness

These relationships have been so key for me as a believer. Looking through this list, I see faces that make me smile. So many on mission friends that have shaped me at church, in small groups, close confidential prayer partners, spiritual fathers, and now people I get the privilege of helping to grow. Not sure where I’d be without these relationships.

If you’re missing out on one of these key relationships, ask God to direct you to or send you to the right church, a circle of friends, a prayer partner, a spiritual father, and/or someone to disciple today.
