Joe Gibbs, legendary coach of the Washington Redskins and owner of Joe Gibbs Racing, and some of his closest friends looked at the most important issues facing men today and what every man needs to know to be victorious in the game of life. Through solid biblical teaching and discussion, Game Plan for Life - Small Group Leader Kit, Volume 2 will help men discover the key principles vital to living a victorious life. (6 sessions)
Leader Kit includes:
- DVD with teaching sessions with such notable personalities as Tony Evans, Randy Alcorn, Don Meredith, Os Guinness, and Walt Larimore
- CD ROM (leader guide, administrative guide, and promotional items)
- Bible Study Book
- Copy of Gameplan for Life paperback book
Each group session consists of:
PREGAME (5-10 Minutes)
Each weekly session begins with a Pregame warm-up that includes prayer, an encouraging word from the Team Captain, and a brief review of the previous week's Personal Training. Every group member has a chance to participate from the start.
KICKOFF (5-10 Minutes)
The session continues with a video object lesson from the Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR) shop, followed by an icebreaker question or two that, again, gives every member a chance to participate in the study and to connect with one another.
FIRST HALF (15-20 Minutes)
The bulk of the video teaching occurs during the first half, with Joe illustrating the topic with experiences from his own life and an "assistant coach" or expert sharing more in-depth teaching on the topic in an interview format. Group members are encouraged to take notes that can be discussed later during Halftime and throughout the group Bible study in the Second Half.
HALFTIME (5-10 Minutes)
Halftime provides the men an opportunity to debrief the video and interact with a question about the weekly topic.
SECOND HALF (30 Minutes)
The small group Bible study occurs in the Second Half and focuses upon passages from the Bible with which the video is connected. Questions are experiential and guide members on a journey toward personal growth and spiritual transformation.
2-MINUTE WARNING (5-10 Minutes)
The 2-minute Warning is a time to wrap up the study by summarizing the main points and to encourage application in the coming week. The group also spends time in prayer at the end of the 2-minute Warning.
About the Author:
Only a fortunate few can rise to the top in an elite, highly competitive profession. Joe Gibbs has done it twice--in two dramatically different sports: football and stock-car racing. He was the coach of the Washington Redskins during their decade of dominance in the 1980s (and again from 2004-2008). He's also the owner of Joe Gibbs Racing, another dominant presence in NASCAR. But Joe is keenly aware that his legacy is not about what he does but Who he knows. And his passion is to lead other men to the Source of his life's victories -- Jesus Christ.
