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 three main aspects of Intentional Accompaniment: people, programs, and paraclete, and the importance of radical commitment in accompaniment.

Discussion Questions:

"When we're planning this parish event, we put the focus on what's the room gonna look like, what's the registration process going to work .. All those things are important, you don't wanna forget those things ... But at the end, you put so much focus on that, that you forget that the event is about reaching individual people". Have you ever experienced this in ministry? What steps can you take to ensure that you focus on your overall mission?
"We have to have a radical commitment to a one-person-at-a-time mentality. A radical commitment to one person at a time". This is a powerful statement from our guest, Michael. Accompanying others in their journey to Christ is a personal encounter. What does Radical Commitment mean to you? How can focusing on one-person-at-a-time benefit the accompanier and the one who's being accompanied?
"Let the Holy Spirit take the lead". What is my relationship with the Holy Spirit? How can we trust the promptings of the Holy Spirit in our own spiritual journeys and in the way that we accompany others? How can we let the Holy Spirit to take the lead in ministry and in our own lives?
