Legacy Minded Men believes in the R3 Theory of Discipleship: Real Relationships Respond to the call of God. That's to say, community is an imperative piece of men's ministry. While all of our resources are available to anyone on an individual basis, we believe strongly that all of these resources are best used in the context of a group. We call these Legacy Groups.
Now, we don't take this objective lightly; we understand that something so simple can in fact be difficult. With jobs, families and other significant responsibilities, it can be hard to find the time to be a part of a men's group. But guys, this is incredibly important. Being in community with other guys on a regular basis needs to be a priority for the legacy-minded man. "As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another." Proverbs 27:17
This is an opportunity for you to get together with other men to share struggles, build each other up and forge relationships that will encourage and inspire you. These groups are designed to transform lives by Engaging, Equipping and Encouraging men to build a Christ-centered Legacy.

STARTING A GROUP - FAQ
Who should facilitate?
Not everyone is born to facilitate a Legacy Group. The ideal candidate should be a man who is not shy and can keep the discussion going, this is extremely important to keep the men engaged. Also, he should not be a people pleaser who tells the men what they want to hear or allows an unproductive discussion to continue.
The entire meeting schedule will either be sent via email to the facilitator or he can simply go to the Legacy Minded Men app to see the new weekly teaching. Either way he just needs to take a few minutes to review the material prior to the meeting and pray for guidance.
Do you have any pointers for facilitators
What size should groups be?
Legacy Groups are ideally for 2 – 12 men. While this may seem like a small number it is essential in order to ensure the men feel comfortable and secure. Also, it is important to make men aware that the private information exchanged in the meeting is in fact private and should not be shared with anyone outside the group. If groups grow to more than 12 we strongly suggest you identify a leader from the group and spin off a new group.
Where should groups meet?
They can be held at home, a coffee shop or even virtually. Men can simply get together with a few friends or it can be part of a church program. The important thing is that men meet!
What material should we use?
All of the content available at Legacy Minded Men has been built specifically with groups in mind. We encourage you to start with Transformed Discipleship (an 8-session program) and then move into our weekly Legacy Minutes (15-20 minute lessons with breakout questions). You can also take a look at our complete content library here.
I already have a group - can we use LMM materials?
YES! In order to better serve you, we ask that you fill in our Start a Group form.
Can I host a Virtual Group?
Legacy Minded Men recommends using Google Meet to construct, invite, and run virtual meetings. Go to the link listed below for a quick training on Google meet. Take notes on the video screen sharing segment. This is crucial for sharing the weekly Legacy Lesson with your men virtually.
