FISHING ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE BOAT
NEW TESTAMENT - JESUS MAKING DISCIPLES
And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ;
Forming - polite but untrusting
Storming - testing others
Norming - valuing other types
Performing - flexibility from trust
3 Things Every Group Need to Thrive
1. Learn something new
2. Develop meaningful relationships
3. Accomplish a worthwhile goal
What do Jesus’ teaching activities have in common? What do they teach uniquely?
Jesus is stretching the disciples & believers beyond their limitations.
Jesus is showing something about God / Himself (sovereignty, authority, power, truth).
Jesus is showing disciples something about themselves.
Jesus is calling forth faith into action.
Jesus is showing believers their need for God.
Jesus is demonstrating his character, integrity…
What is our goal in teaching children?
What are some ways to stretch your children beyond their perceived limitations and build them up in the faith for the work of ministry?
Find a way for kids to minister to others… Make that your aim… then, point to faith in Christ as you equip them for the challenges of that ministry
Provide real teaching, experience, training, participation, discussion, and demonstration… so their faith has been strengthened for service.
Group team building activities provide opportunities
RESEARCH SUPPORTS EXPERIENTIAL APPROACH
OLD TESTAMENT - ISRAEL IN THE WILDERNESS
Remember how the LORD your God led you all the way in the desert these forty years, to humble you and to test you in order to know what was in your heart, whether or not you would keep his commands.
TEAM FORMATION - THE TUCKMAN MODEL
Following an exhaustive three decade study of the relationship between social connectedness and longevity, researchers have determined the people with adequate social relationships were 50% less likely to die during the study period than those without such relationships. Stated another way, "people with little social support have a mortality risk equal to alcoholism and even higher than either obesity or physical inactivity." The study showed an "average" longevity increase of 3.7 years for more connected people.

FACTORING IN THE VARIABLES
WHEN? & WHY?
OBSERVATION & INTERVENTION
• Testing others
• Cliques start to have
• Conflicts occur
• People confronted
• Hidden Agendas are raised
• Struggle for leadership
• Opting out
• Feeling stuck

Based on what you have learned, how can you apply this to your life at home or school? Based on what you have learned, how will this help you make future decisions?
What is the connection
between this activity and real life? What did you learn from the activity? What did you learn about yourself, others, or the team?
Ask the group what happened during the activity—individually and as a team. Avoid value judgments and blaming, be objective, open and honest while at the same time being respectful.
1) LEADER DEBRIEF - (WHAT?, SO WHAT?, NOW WHAT?)
2) LET IT SPEAK FOR ITSELF – Just move on.
3) LEFT/RIGHT/STOP – Circle shuffles left or right until someone stops, speaks, & restarts.
4) PAIR SHARE or SMALL GROUP SHARE – Many small private focused discussions
5) BULLS EYE - Make circles on the ground (Leaders = bullseye. Contributor, Encourager, Uninvolved = Outer rings)
6) DEBRIEF CARD – list of questions to give to participant who leads small group discussion
7) COUNTDOWN – ask 5 people to share observations of activity counting down on your fingers.
8) TEAM CONTINUUM – Group rates themselves on continuum 1-10. If 7, shares 7 positives & 3 improvements.
9) PICTURE DROP - Pictures on ground. Group holds object over picture that describes experience, drop same time.
10) BODY PARTS - Pass body parts to facilitate sharing: Heart (what you felt), Eye (what you saw), Hand (applaud)
11) ISOLATION – Solitary walk or individual reflection.
12) JOURNAL ENTRIES – Time to process individually and return to group for discussion
13) SELF-MAILER – Participant writes letter to self as a reminder of what was learned.
