A Steering Committee should include:
No fewer than three members and no more than nine
Representation of the entire Christian community of various churches, ages, professions, genders, races, etc. (Without intentionality, the group will likely include only one generation of one gender from one local church.)
One member will chair the committee to help convene meetings and serve as the point of contact with the LifeWise Support Center.
Every member is asked to:
1. Complete LifeWise Basic Training (approximately 2 hours)
2. Be faithful in attending scheduled meetings
3. Be consistent in prayer for the local program
Every member should have a proven track record of exemplifying the two LifeWise Core Values:
COMMITMENT Members have their hearts in the right place. They are motivated by their love for the Lord and are all in. They are fully supportive of the gospel-centered purposes of a local LifeWise program.
COMPETENCE Members have the know-how, skills and relationships to get stuff done.
Note: Each member must be recommended by the leadership of the local church in which he/she is an active participant. While we recognize that there are sometimes legitimate reasons to be “between churches,” LifeWise is fundamentally a local church driven ministry and it is, therefore, important for Steering Committee members to be representative of local churches.
