The purpose of a Team is for the strength of the Group to offset the struggles of the Individual.
I’ve got your back because we’re on the SAME TEAM!

SAME TEAM, BRO!
(Job 2:11, NLT) When three of Job’s friends heard of the tragedy he had suffered, they got together and traveled from their homes to comfort and console him. Their names were Eliphaz the Temanite, Bildad the Shuhite, and Zophar the Naamathite.
- Eliphaz acted as Job’s CONSCIENCE
- Bildad hit Job with TRUTH
- Zohar gave UNREQUESTED ADVICE
- When we TURN on each other we’re all more VULNERABLE
WE, NOT ME
(1 Thessalonians 2:8, NLT) We loved you so much that we shared with you, not only GOD’s Good News but our own lives, too.
- WE’RE in this TOGETHER
Three things happen in Life-giving relationships:
- GROWTH happens
- POTENTIAL is realized
- PURPOSE is fulfilled
- Don’t DO LIFE alone
- I need a GROUP, because I’ll never be free ALONE
(Ecclesiastes 4:12, NLT) A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.
FIND my team, GROW my team, PROTECT my team
