The core element of our culture at Zoweh is “Intimacy, Oneness and Connectedness with God and with others.”
However, Redemptive Friendships are hard fought. They take time to build, and then we have to work hard to maintain them. Relationships often get derailed over misunderstandings and miscommunication; and when people gather together in a group, the chances of misunderstanding and miscommunicating are even greater.
That’s why one of the ways we assist our Allies is by sharing some of the pointers we’ve learned about effective leadership communication and friendships through 60+ years of collective ministry experience.
In Redemptive Friendship, a leader must do more than just facilitate discussion. He needs to be equipped to act as a coach and, occasionally, a spiritual medic to the men in his group.
We want to help group leaders as they are walking with us at Zoweh. Through conversation and resources, we aim to guide others to shepherding the hearts of men and assisting them on their magnificent journey to freedom. To do this, the leader must himself be walking with God as an oriented man - a Beloved Son. He should be familiar with Zoweh resources and materials, desire to be a spiritual medic for his men, and be willing to treat his role very seriously.
