Principle 10: Free to Care – Free people can help free other people.

Basic Principle by Questions

  2. In what ministry are you currently serving and how would you like to serve in the future?
  3. How realistic is it to think you can’t ever be weak or make a mistake if you want to serve Christ?
  4. What way of serving God puts light in your eyes and fulfills God’s call or command for you?
  5. Are you currently in a community of growing believers with whom you can truly “do life”?
  6. How important is it to not do ministry solo for extended periods of time?
  7. Who do you know making a real difference in the world for Christ? Describe their work.
  8. Do you know the best “next step” in either your ministry or personal healing? In this life there will always be a “next step”.
