  1. Introduce L.I.F.E. to the Pastor/Leader of your organization. The “Introduction to L.I.F.E.” DVD, included in our Presentation Pack, would be an excellent tool.
    Call (866) 408-LIFE to get a Presentation Pack for a $5 donation.
  2. Choose a spiritual authority over the group. This person has the responsibility of spiritual oversight over the L.I.F.E. Group.
  3. Request prayer for the startup of your group, and continued prayer that God will bring those who need this ministry in their lives.
  4. Select a Group Facilitator to facilitate group meetings. This person has the responsibility of implementing the L.I.F.E. Group. The facilitator will benefit from the assignment-by-assignment curriculum found in the Facilitator’s Guide. More information at www.freedomeveryday.org/store.
  5. Purchase several L.I.F.E. Guides and materials for your group to retain interest when a new member signs up (they can start reviewing their Guide immediately). Order online at www.freedomeveryday.org/store.
  6. Setup a file box to hold extra workbooks, Facilitators Guide, envelopes for contributions, phone list (creates an easy hand-off if facilitator cannot make a meeting)

Spreading the Word

  1. Ask the Pastor/Leader to talk to the entire organization about sexual integrity.
  2. Meet with leaders in your church to spread the word about the group
  3. Have a table with material available after organizational functions (church service, etc.) and display L.I.F.E. brochures at the church information station.
  4. Get referrals from prayer ministers or counseling teams affiliated with your organization.
  5. Visit smaller groups (i.e. Sunday School classes) to talk about L.I.F.E. Recovery International and possibly give a testimony to the effectiveness of the groups.
  6. Request listing in the bulletin and newsletters at your organization and other churches in your area. (i.e. L.I.F.E. Recovery International—providing help for sexual integrity issues. Toll Free: (866) 408-LIFE or www.freedomeveryday.org; Sexual Integrity Group, contact John D. at (555) 555-5555 or doe@adeer.com)
