As group members grow in Christ-likeness, encourage them to reflect Christ’s heart for their neighbors:
- Most new members come because of a friend's invitation. A good visual reminder is to place an empty chair in the room. Challenge the members to pray that God will lead them to invite people to fill the empty chair.
- Encourage your members to invest in the lives of those around them and extend invitations.
- Each year as you begin a new study, send invitations or flyers out to all neighbors.
- As a group, host an outreach gathering for your neighborhood or workplace, such as a Christmas coffee. Encourage each group member to invite one friend.
Continue to encourage your members to pray, care for, and build bridges of friendship with those not attending the study. The desire of NBS2GO is that the door would always be open, and the members would continue inviting people to come, throughout the year.
