From Purpose to Promise Driven Life: A Prescription for Making the Difference You Were Born to MakePromise Driven Life Reading GroupHow-To Set-up and Facilitate a Reading Group at Your Organization or Church

It’s essential to begin this reading experience with a clear visual of how you would like it to unfold and impact your church/organization. Only then will you be able to persuade others to join you.

• Decide on objectives…What are you trying to accomplish with this effort? How can you tie this reading venture into your own mission and vision for your church/organization?

• Get the word out…announcements, flyers, signs, website and email blasts, ads at local library and newspapers.  Use the icons below to share this page on social networks like Google+, Twitter and Facebook.

• Decide on how large a group you are able to facilitate without additional discussion leaders.

• If you will need additional discussion leaders, have an in depth discussion of the goals and objectives for the experience with the selected leaders and review the first 91 pages, together.

• Determine goal for the number of readers you are seeking – to have the desired impact at your church or organization.

• Set the schedule…first logistics meeting, first discussion meeting, schedule of all meetings, conference calls and other opportunities for sharing.

• “Like” Dr. Evans at his Facebook Page and visit his blog at to have a forum for comments and discussions.

• Update your website with the schedule and logistics information.

• Secure these positions among your team – facilitator, time-keeper, recorder and if documenting this journey is your goal, photographer.

• Decide whether you will have these positions rotate…people taking turns might lead to more enthusiasm and support for each other.
