- Work with a LifeWise Program Coach to draft a logistical plan to be presented to school officials
- Increase community support, primarily through growing the Community Interest List
- Obtain school district approval and cooperation
- Identify and install the local Program Director
- Three to nine members representing at least three churches
- Representation of the diverse Christian community of various churches, ages, professions, genders, races, etc. (Without intentionality, the group will likely include only one generation of one gender from one local church.)
- One member will chair the committee to help convene meetings and serve as the point of contact with the LifeWise Support Center
- Complete Steering Committee Training (approximately 1 hour)
- Be faithful in attending scheduled meetings
- Be consistent in prayer for the local program
Member Qualifications – A proven track record of exemplifying the LifeWise Core Values:
- Commitment – Members have their hearts in the right place. They are motivated by their love for the Lord and are all in with the gospel-centered purposes of a local LifeWise.
- Competence – Members have the know-how, skills and relationships to get stuff done.
*Note: Each member must provide the contact information of a local church leader in which he/she is an active participant. While we recognize that there are sometimes legitimate reasons to be “between churches,” LifeWise is fundamentally a local church driven ministry and it is, therefore, important for Steering Committee members to be representative of local churches.
