Role of a Team to bring Jesus to the Participants
As a Team, what is our role in order to help bring Jesus Christ to the participants, in order to yield good
fruits after the Christian Life Program? (not necessarily the quantity but the quality)
This is God’s work and we need to rely on His wisdom.

I. Let us learned from St. Paul. His intense desires and sacrifices, filled with the Holy Spirits converted
many Thessalonians to Christianity. 1Thes. 1:5
The extent of the team desire and eagerness to evangelize will be the extent by which God can unleash
the power of the Holy Spirit through us. How?
1. Power of prayers. In our personal prayer time,praying of the Holy Rosary, fasting is a form of
prayer, prayers before and after the session , prayer warrior during the talks .
2. Pray-over of the Speakers to have him power. (Don’t rely too much on good speaker we heard and
experienced)The power of the Holy Spirit t will transform words into strong and impressive words that
will make a great difference in the lives of everyone. Let us also learned from St. Paul how he trembled
with fear in proclaiming God’s words yet many were converted to Christians for he relied on the power
of the Holy Spirit. 1Cor. 2:1-5
3. Receiving Him in the sacraments especially the Holy Eucharist and Confessions.
4. By coming together as couples, friends, and families in prayer and worship, our world is set for
change.

II. Being members of the body of Christ that will reach out people, let us work as it should ( as DGL, team
leader, asst. team, Servant, Music ministry, team members, prayer warriors) and the whole body grows.
Means, more people will be closer to God through our unity and love in service. Eph.4:16
