Have you ever noticed how hard it can be to make change in your life? I have. The gap between the change I want to see and the actual change I experience is often wide, especially when it’s done in isolation.
To experience real, life transforming change in your life you need a community that can provide accountability and encouragement. In this environment, effective change happens.
Accountability in Community
This person (or people) cares so much about you that they won’t let you stay the same. As a result, they spur you on to pursue the change God is calling you to. Oftentimes, they also see the needed change before you do.
Encouragement in Community
Everyone needs an encourager. This person (or people) will point out the small wins that are often hard to see and provide encouragement when you experience the failure that always accompanies change. They remind you of your identity in Christ and His promises in your life.
So, who will make a good accountability and encouragement partner for you?
Here are a few questions to help you discern who might be a good fit:
- Who already knows what direction you want to go in life?
- Who is a little ahead of you on the same path?
- Who is not afraid to ask you the tough questions?
- Who believes in you before you believe in yourself?
- Who listens well?
And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. Hebrews 10:24-25
For 1,000 Young Leaders you might say this is our sweet spot. We provides a safe space for accountability and encouragement through weekly and bi-weekly video calls. If you are ready to make effective change in your life that leads to a deeper relationship with Jesus and wider influence with the Gospel OR if you would like to be the accountability and encouragement for young leaders, join us for the November 1st launch.
