Lesson 1: Shared Leadership and the Gospel



In this first lesson, Jeff talks about the first three elements of forming a healthy missional community. He shares from his own experience why shared leadership is vital for sustainability. He then shares why mission and community must start with a gospel foundation and are lived out as the community pursues gospel intentionality in their own lives, together and on mission.




  • Why is shared leadership vital for a healthy missional community? What truths of the gospel must dwell in our hearts to share leadership with other, differently-gifted disciples of Jesus?
  • What elements of the “gospel foundation” resonated most with you? Which were new, and might you need to grow in more?
  • What are some ways you currently live with gospel intentionality? What are some ways your community can grow stronger in elements of this intentional life together?
