In this episode, we continue our Intentional Accompaniment series with Proclaim Director, Eric Chow and CCO Missionary, Michael Hall. In this series, they break down CCO's model of Intentional Accompaniment - an essential skill for missionary disciples. In this episode, Eric and Michael discuss the role of an accompanier, how to grow in our interior life, and how to build the foundation of holiness and mission in accompaniment.

Discussion Questions:

"As an apprentice, you don't just go into a classroom and study how to be a cabinet maker or a plumber, and get thrown out into the field when you're deemed ready...There's that person who's there over your shoulder not to criticize you, but to be a support and a role model and who walks with you along the way." Michael shares about the importance and significance of having someone walk with you in your spiritual journey. When you think about your own spiritual journey, has there been moments where you felt like an "apprentice"? Who were your mentors? How have they helped you in growing in holiness and mission?
As we grow and mature in our Catholic faith, it is likely that we have encountered others in that are in the beginning stages of their spiritual journey that we can accompany. Who have you accompanied? What insights and lessons have you learned about God, yourself, and the person you accompanied in the process? How have you helped them in their growth? If you haven't accompanied anyone before and would like to, was there a time that you felt an opportunity of accompanying others came up in the past? How can you prepare yourself to be an accompanier in the future?
How have you passed on "the message and the mission" in your day-to-day life? What steps have you taken to grow in holiness and mission? What actions have you taken to learn more about our Catholic faith? How have you matured in holiness and multiplying in mission?
