As we approach each new study, many women have questions about leading a Good Morning Girls group. If you’re one of those women, this post should give you some answers!
Who can be a Leader?
Leaders are women who really desire to dig deep into Scripture themselves, and are willing to have others join them in their journey. There are no specific required qualifications for GMG Leaders, but we encourage new leaders to participate in Leadership Mentoring when it is available.
What is required of a Leader?
Leadership is a serious commitment, and one that shouldn’t be entered into on a whim. Leaders need to:
- Commit to daily participation for the course of the entire study.
- Post their SOAP each day, preferably at the same time of day for consistency in their group.
- Pray regularly for their group members.
- Participate in the larger community of GMG Leaders.
- Read each GMG Blog Post.
- Respect the guidelines that GMG gives.
- Be familiar with the Good Morning Girls Leader’s Guide, which is available to registered leaders.
- Agree with the Good Morning Girls ‘Statement of Faith.
What is the time commitment each day?
Most leaders typically spend one to two hours a day doing their personal study, posting, and interacting with their group members. That time is often spread throughout the day in smaller increments.
How do I become a Leader?
The best way to become a leader is to gather a group of your family and friends who would like to do the study with you! We find group size works best with 5 to 12 women, but it can be smaller or slightly larger.
If you don’t have any friends or family who would like to join you, it’s possible to list your group as being open to accepting new members. More information is available in the Leader’s Guide, once you are registered as a leader.
To register as a leader, hover your mouse over the tab ‘Groups’ on the menu bar above, then click ‘Be a Leader.’ You will arrive at a page with some more information to consider. At the bottom of the page is a button – click that to register as a leader. The Leader Registration Form will be available to fill out when Enrollment starts.
If Leadership is something you’re considering, take some time to pray and listen to God’s voice. And if you do decide to lead, I look forward to “meeting” you!
Be blessed – and be a blessing!
