Job Summary: The pastor and the Point Person use the REACH MORE system to discern and invite laity into formation

Missionary disciples create a small group network that meets in homes or public places, not at the
parish or campus Catholic center. Group leaders and members invite people—even those who may
never attend anything at a church—into loving, Christ-centered community.
Evangelizing pre-supposes a desire in the Church to come out of herself. The Church is
called to come out of herself and to go to the peripheries, not only geographically, but
also the existential peripheries: the mystery of sin, of pain, of injustice, of ignorance and
indifference to religion, of intellectual currents, and of all misery.

Responsibilities: 

  • Point People
    • Work closely with your consultant at The Evangelical Catholic, meeting by video conferencing or  phone (frequency depends on your partnership level).

      • Steer discussion toward essential topics and core content.
    • Meet one-on-one with group members for individualized discipleship formation.
  • Send Leaders into Mission
    • Equip leaders to invest in relationships and invite people they know into small groups.
    • Assist leaders in building their groups through parish support and publicity as needed. 
    • Decide on materials/books and orders (REACH MORE makes recommendations).
    • Execute launch tasks to send leaders into mission (described in Send Missionary Disciples  course). 
  • Shepherd Small Group Leaders
    • Guide and care for them long term as they grow into a lifestyle of personal apostolate. 
    • Provide support and guidance to them as their small groups deepen, expand, decline, or  encounter challenges.
    • Shepherd them into deeper formation and training individually and as a group.
    • Help them discern content for small group sessions.
  • Expand a Movement of Evangelization
    • Discern and invite a new cohort of disciples into formation and training to being the cycle again  and expand the movement.

    • Strategically invite key disciples into formation and training to expand into hard-to-reach parts  of your community.

Time Commitment: 

  • dedicate a minimum of 15 hours per week to rEACH MORE during the first cycle through the Mission Process
