Household Leaders Prayer


Lord

you have searched me and you know me. You know


every thing I do Find out if there is any unrighteousness
in me and guide me in the everlasting way.
(Psalm 139: 1-2, 24)
Lord Jesus,
I thank you for choosing me to serve you
By caring for your people
You know me,
My guilt, my sin and my pain.
I realize that I am most unworthy yet you fall me,
And so I ask for you grace.
Forgive my sinfulness and my stubbornness.
Take my heart of stone and turn it into flesh.
Teach me to love.
When I lack patients, genuine concern and courage,
Let your love and strength bridge the gap.
Help me love with your love and wisdom,
And bless those I will care for that they too may love.
Fill me, teach me, guide me and give me strength.
Amen

Household Heads Handbook

What is a Household?
Definition

The household is the most basic, concrete tangible expression of Gods love in
Youth for Christ.
It is a support group by nature and its main purpose is to foster a venue for growth
in Christian maturity.
It is where YFC members experience being cared for and learn to care and give
love.
It is a Christian group where YFC members can have a sense of belonging, be
themselves, simply because they are accepted for who they are sons and
daughters of God.

Mechanics
1.

A household is composed of:


5-7 brothers and 5-7 sisters
Two household leaders, a brother and a sister lead them. The brothers main
responsibility is to care for the men of the group. Aside from this he takes
on the role as father or older brother of the whole group. Only he is
referred to as the Household Head. The sister will act as the partner of the
Household Head and her main responsibility is to care for the women of the
group.
Aside for the two household leaders, another male female pair will be
added to the group to act as assistant household leaders.

Note: Having a team of leaders makes it easier to pass on Christian culture to members of
the household. (e.g. worship, positive speech, honor and respect etc)
2.

Forming a Household
Before members are grouped (e.g. during camps) the service team in charge
of grouping participants should take note of common characteristics of
different people. (e.g. where theyre from, interests, age, etc)
It is important to take not of those who naturally bond.

Note: Discussion groupings during Youth Camps should eventually end up as


Households. It will be easier to establish commitment among the members, if they
enjoy the company of their fellow household members because of their natural
bond. The spiritual bond they will have in Christ after the camp will further cement
their relationships and their commitment.

Households (right at the start of their being YFC members that is


during the camp) will have to be grouped according to the factors listed
earlier.

CFC Youth for Christ

Household Heads Handbook

Leaders and their assistants assign household leaders and their


assistants from among the active members of the group.

Potential household heads should undergo YFCs Household Heads


Training program before the camp. This will also serve as their facilitators
training for the camp.

Those who will facilitate and care for the members at the camp
(which will be the entry point into YFC) will automatically become the
household leaders of the group.

Finding leaders who fit the general character of the members is


highly encouraged. This will make it easier for the household head to relate
to his members.

One-Year Track

CFC Youth for Christ

Household Heads Handbook

What Now?
This one year household activities track is meant to help you facilitate a deliberate followup program for your new Youth for Christ. It is supposed to help you and your group get
used to the rhythm and environment of the support group system we have in the YFC
household. A year of exposure in the ministry of caring for people will teach you to come
up with your own household activities for the second year. By then many of your members
will be tapped as household leaders themselves.
Aside for the suggested activities listed below, you are encouraged to bring your members
to camps, Praisefests, Club Praise parties and other YFC activities in order to expose then
to service and immerse them in the life and mission of YFC.
Note: The Household Head may substitute other activities that are more relevant to the
group, especially if special concerns arise. Consult with your unit head for such
changes. It is important to note however that the topics listed in this handbook are
the basic programs every YFC member should go through in his/her first year of
membership. If you so choose to substitute these activities with other more relevant
ones, you should make sure to re-schedule the meeting topics.

The meeting will follow the basic format used during the Covenant 1 meeting
(Meeting 2 Month 1) except that there will be a time for listening to the Lord
or for prophecy within the worship.
During the exhortation before the worship the household head should
encourage his members to practice the gifts of the spirit by praying and
singing in tongues and/or by speaking words of prophesy from the Lord.
The last (slow worshipful e.g. Salvation Belongs to Our God, Spirit of
the Living God) song should flow into a time of singing in the spirit.
After singing in the spirit ask the members to share any inspired reading
from the scripture (the Bible) or messages they believe the Lord is speaking
to their hearts for the whole group.

Note: The household leaders and assistants will often have to be the first to speak these
words of prophesy. They are encouraged to ask the Lord for these messages even
before the meeting (even write them down before hand). Initially, members will be
hesitant to speak. Some will start to practice these spiritual gifts long after this
meeting.
