039: Intentional Accompaniment Series: The 1-2-3-4 Model 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 layers of who are a part of the journey of accompanying others through CCO's 1-2-3-4 model, and dive deeper into the meaning of the scripture verse, 2 Timothy 2:2.

Discussion Questions:


What stood out to you the most from this episode?
Have you heard of CCO's 1-2-3-4 model before? Have you had experience to a leadership structure similar to this concept in the past? What are your thoughts on this model? How can this model help each person (1s, 2s, 3s, 4s) in the ministry/movement?
&quot;Who are the next generation of missionary disciples?&quot; How have you helped those that you have accompanied to become the next leaders? If you've witnessed those you have accompanied become leaders, share your story with the group. What did you learn from that experience? If you haven't experienced this yet, keeping in mind that the one who leads in this accompaniment is the Holy Spirit, what are your dreams for your 1s? 2s? 3s?
In the context of leading a program or small group, it is easy to identify the 1s, 2s, and the 4s. But where we lack is finding and identifying the 3s within our ministry. How can we help build up the 2s into future 3s? As leaders in our community, how can we intentionally help 2s (and even 1s) become future 3s one day?

038: Intentional Accompaniment Series: Prophetic Listening 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 prophetic listening: a crucial component in accompanying others, and they share four practical tips to intentionally build this skill.

Discussion Questions:


What stood out to you from this episode?
&quot;If the Lord is calling you to mission, ministry, or to a particular person, and we know that He has a plan for those people, and He has a plan for us personally; doesn't it make sense, that if He wants you to help a person to move in a direction that He wants to move, that He would let us in the plan?&quot;. Our guest, Michael, describes prophetic listening in this way. Think back when you were accompanying others (or when someone was accompanying you), have you had moments of prophetic listening with God? What happened during that encounter?
&quot;If you don't take that risk, you won't ever discover how far you can take that conversation&quot;. Has this ever happened to you? Have you ever felt scared or intimidated to delve deeper in getting to know someone new? What happened? What steps can you take to ensure that you're inviting the Holy Spirit into your future conversations and encounters?
Think back on the four skills of prophetic listening that Michael shared: &quot;build rapport&quot;, &quot;survey&quot;, &quot;zoom in&quot; and &quot;strengthen&quot;. Which skills do you excel at? Which skills do you find challenging? As a group, brainstorm ideas on how to build on these skills together, and what helped you in your own journey.
If time allows, try practicing these new skills together. Find a partner, listen to each other applying what you've learned about prophetic listening, and share feedback with one another. What have you learned from this experience/exercise?

037: Intentional Accompaniment Series: Radical Commitment 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:


&quot;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&quot;. Have you ever experienced this in ministry? What steps can you take to ensure that you focus on your overall mission?
&quot;We have to have a radical commitment to a one-person-at-a-time mentality. A radical commitment to one person at a time&quot;. 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?
&quot;Let the Holy Spirit take the lead&quot;. 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?

Discussion Questions:


&quot;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.&quot; 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 &quot;apprentice&quot;? 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 &quot;the message and the mission&quot; 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?
