COUPLES FOR CHRIST HOUSEHOLD HEAD'S MANUAL I

THE HOUSEHOLD 1

Definition A household is a grouping of couples who meet regularly during the week for personal sharing and for mutual support and encouragement in the Christian life

As such,

the household is the basic unit in the pastoral structure of Couples for Christ (CFC)

PURPOSE The purpose of the household group is to build an environment for the support of the Christian life of couples,

and to provide a means of encouraging and hastening growth in the Christian life

As such,

Builds faith and provides for mutual encouragement through sharing of life experiences and God's practical wisdom

Provides friendship and brotherhood (sisterhood),

without which our Christian life lacks joyful expression

Provides support for each other's needs

Helps people overcome obstacles to growth in the Christian life

Composition A household is composed of five to seven couples including the household head and his wife

The household is constituted from couples who finished the Christian Life Program (CLP) and who have made their commitment to the covenant of the Couples for Christ

The household is set up immediately after the end of the CLP

In succeeding years,

there would be occasions when households would be reorganized,

with the ensuing change in the membership in the different households

Necessity of household membership Every CFC couple is to belong to one household as a member of it

CFC leaders (Household Heads,

Unit Heads,

Chapter Heads and their wives) are all to belong to households for their own personal support in their Christian life

Thus every CFC leader participates in two households,

one which he leads and the other where he in turn is led

THE HOUSEHOLD HEAD 1

Definition a

The household head is a man appointed to take care of a household

The husband is the "household head"

The husband and wife are not the household heads

Together,

the husband and wife are the "household leaders"

The Role of the Household Head a

He is the designated leader over a group of couples and is responsible for all the activities of the household and for the good order of the household meeting

attendance sharing/discussion honor and respect

He acts as an older brother to the group

establishes strong personal relationships with each of his men

gets help for them whenever it is available

He helps each member to be fully integrated into the household and in CFC

He has no authority over member's lives but exercises concern for their lives,

especially in the areas of righteousness and good order

He supports the life in CFC and the decisions of its elders

does not use the household meeting to ventilate his disagreements with CFC or its elders

In case of such disagreement,

he takes this up with his Unit Head

supports fully any decision on movements of couples from one household to another,

and helps such couples make such movements with ease and a minimum of difficulty

The role of the Household Head's Wife a

She is responsible for developing and enriching sisterly relationships among the wives

She fosters good order in the discussion and sharing of the wives during the household meeting

She sees to it that all the wives are fully integrated into the household and in CFC

She does not exercise headship over the wives,

whose heads are their husbands

Qualifications of a Household Head The household head is selected based on the following criteria: a

Availability b

Formation * growing spiritually * fairly good order in personal life (especially relationship with spouse) * a fairly good appreciation of the vision,

Personal characteristics * emotionally stable * able to accept direction and correction * has a good reputation d

Skills * ability to handle a group discussion * good listening and communication skills * ability to provide adequate directions to members regarding CFC commitments e

A member of CFC for at least one year

Attitudes of a Household Head In order to properly function in a way that would truly be helpful to the members of the household,

the household head needs to have some basic attitudes,

He must have the mind and heart of a servant

Just like the Lord Jesus,

he must come to serve rather than be served

His service should be an expression of his love for the Lord

He should be humble in his service and put the interest of his members first

He should be obedient to the Lord and to those whom the Lord has put in charge of his service

He must look upon the couples under him as being given by the Lord,

He has the responsibility to look after their spiritual welfare,

a charge coming directly from the Lord

He must love them as brothers and sisters

They are not just good friends,

He must serve with gladness and joy

No matter what one's difficulties are,

no matter how badly the day went,

no matter how strained one's relationship with his wife is at the moment,

the household head needs to have the joy of the Lord,

the joy that transcends all earthly difficulties

And of course,

how he conducts himself will provide a living example to those who have been put in his care

He must serve in trust and confidence

He needs to realize that since the Lord has called him to do His work,

then the Lord will equip him with the wisdom,

guidance and gifts necessary to be an effective instrument of His will

Some Areas of Challenge The household head is not expected to exercise pastoral headship over his group,

but he would normally encounter certain pastoral challenges which he cannot avoid or should not avoid,

but for which he should prudently seek help from the elders

The household head should refer all serious pastoral concerns to his Unit Head,

who is the pastor of the members of the unit,

Of course,

the Unit Head can direct the household head to handle the situation himself,

But ultimately it is the responsibility and concern of the Unit Head

Putting it within the context of a family (which a household is),

the household head is the big brother while the Unit Head is the father

Some examples of issues that need to be referred to the Unit Head are: a

Serious relationship problems between husband and wife

Issues which pastorally affect the unit or across units,

financial borrowing without proper consultation and clearance

Unfaithfulness of members to meetings,

requiring a decision to retain or drop a couple from CFC

Slander or gossip which erodes relationships within the household/unit or across units

Serious wrongdoing

Moral and theological questions,

Proselytizing and ecumenical relationships

Practical Considerations Some of the concrete things the household head can and should do are:

Handle the practical concerns for household meetings

places of meetings topics for discussion/sharing drawing out a withdrawn member regulating an over-sharing member how to stop gossip in the meeting bringing the discussion to the agenda and keeping it on course

Know each member well

Be prayerful

Be prepared and have an agenda

In other words,

Focus on spiritual growth and God's power rather than on problems

However,

be sensitive to personal problems

Get the group to make agreements and account to one another regarding: * time of meeting,

punctuality * right way of speaking about others * negative humor * others g

Always work on the faithfulness of members

Attendance at the household meetings is part of a member's commitment and is a must

Refer all frequent absentees to your Unit Head

Together you can discuss the particular situation and decide on a course of action

Remember: the strength of the body will depend on its members' faithfulness and commitment

Always be on the look-out for potential leaders (CLP discussion leaders,

household heads) and inform your Unit/Chapter Head about them

We want to identify them early,

chart their development and at the opportune time let them serve

Remember that CFC can only grow in number to the extent that our leadership resources allow

Look upon our newsletter,

Ugnayan,

It can help members grow through teachings

It can help members experience unity in the body,

especially in view of our growing numbers

The Ugnayan is normally given out through the Unit Heads and the household head should ensure that each and every member-couple gets it every time

Study and read,

especially the books we publish

Keep ahead of your members

Don't use the household meeting to ventilate your own personal problems,

nor seek help for such problems from the household members under you

Rather,

bring these to your Unit Head and to the unit household of which you are a member

If for any reason you feel you cannot do the job as household head adequately,

discuss this with your Unit Head so that appropriate action can be taken

Don't just let it go,

with the result that your household members suffer

THE HOUSEHOLD MEMBERS 1

Attitudes of Household Members In order to reap the full benefits to be offered by participation in a household group,

its members have to foster some basic attitudes,

Openness

One should realize that this is part of God's work and in conformity with His plan for each person,

and should therefore be expectant and desirous of what is in store for him/her

Concretely,

one should share about his/her personal life and relationship with the Lord in a spirit of openness

Confidentiality

including their concerns and difficulties,

And this can be done only in an atmosphere of confidentiality

Whatever is shared in the meetings should not be shared outside with anyone else

Note: The household leaders may share concerns with their service head/Unit Head,

who are extensions of their service and care for household members

This is not a breach of confidentiality

The prohibition on sharing with outsiders excludes the positive factors in one's life

These in effect can be shared by the members outside the household meeting whenever there is an appropriate opportunity so that others can also be built up and encouraged

Faithfulness

Only with continuity and one's personal commitment can the purpose of household groups be achieved

Participation

and have the attitude of wanting to make a contribution to the life of the meeting

Think not only of what you can get out of the meeting,

but of what you can impart to the brothers and sisters

This is done by active participation in worship,

It is important that each member supports the good order of the weekly meeting and relates to everyone in the group with honor and respect,

especially to the household head

is to foster active concern and commitment to one another

One has to look on the other members of the group as not just so many new friends,

but as brothers and sisters in the Lord,

among whom mutual love is the common denominator

Attendance a

Each member is expected to attend the weekly meetings faithfully,

and indeed this is part of one's commitment to the covenant of CFC

Of course,

certain obstacles will come up,

What is important is that one should accord top priority to these meetings and really desire not to be absent from them

If either spouse is unable to attend a meeting,

They don't have to come as a couple if one cannot come for a valid reason

Since attendance is part of one's commitment and since the very purpose of household groups would be defeated by frequent absences (indicating a lack of interest),

such absences form sufficient ground for one's separation from CFC

Household heads should follow up on absent members and try to renew their interest and commitment

If unsuccessful,

the matter should be referred to the Unit Head for appropriate action

The household head has no authority to grant leaves of absence to his household members

Any such requests should be referred to the Unit Head

THE HOUSEHOLD MEETINGS 1

Frequency a

Households meet once a week,

on the same day of the week as mutually agreed on by the members

Less than once a week would not provide enough contact to have adequate support and encouragement in the Christian life

More than once a week may take time that is more properly allocated to work,

personal needs or Christian service

The household head cannot skip or cancel any meeting,

or as approved by the Unit Head due to a serious reason

If the household head cannot be present at a scheduled household meeting (of course

he should not cancel the meeting

Rather,

he must refer the matter to the Unit Head

Together,

they will agree on a replacement,

either one of the men from the household or another brother from the unit

Exceptions to the weekly household meetings are the following: *

During the week when the monthly prayer meeting is held

When a whole household serves in a CLP

In this case,

the household will need to meet only two weeks out of four in a month,

in addition to its weekly service in the CLP

if the CLP is on the same day as the monthly prayer meeting,

the household meets twice in a regular household meeting

if the CLP is not on the same day as the monthly prayer meeting,

the household meets once in a regular household meeting and attends the prayer meeting

Continuing to meet is essential so that the members continue receiving personal life support,

and not just meet for service,

During special times such as Holy Week and Christmas break

Venue The household meeting is to be held in the home of one of the members of the group

The meeting place is rotated among the homes of each member-couple

Having the household meeting in the homes of the household members have the following values: a

Worshiping the Lord in our homes makes the truth that the home is a small church a concrete reality

And God's blessings will surely descend upon the home where God's people can be found,

worshiping Him together and growing in their faith together

The people in our home

the people who are closest to us and whom we love

To them we will become people who are living their Christian faith openly and powerfully

What we do in our homes can be an effective tool for evangelism,

especially to our residential household,

to our neighbors and to other relatives and friends

Ingredients of a Household Meeting

A typical household meeting would involve three indispensable ingredients: (1) worship and prayer,

and (3) some time for fellowship

All three are very important and none should be skipped or simply glossed over

Worship

The worship portion should include all the necessary ingredients: singing,

prayers of petition and intercession

Every member should become familiar and comfortable with our way of worship and praise,

and the household head shows the way

A typical format for the time of worship could be as follows:

come before the Lord (may be a short period of silence and/or a short exhortation from the leader) sing a lively song of praise simultaneous vocal praising sing another song,

then more praising sing a worship song singing in tongues,

followed by a short period of silence bring forward words from the Lord (prophecy,

Members should be exhorted by the head to participate actively in the singing,

praising and prayers of thanksgiving and petition

They should also be encouraged to exercise the spiritual gifts of prophecy,

inspired Scripture reading and exhortation

The household head leads in the worship

As a general rule,

he should not delegate his responsibility to the other men

However,

every once in a while (not too often),

he may ask another brother to lead,

But most if not all the time,

Ideally,

someone in the group should play the guitar

A piano or other musical instrument would be alternatives,

If no one can play,

then it would be advisable to make use of our song tapes,

where songs have been arranged in groups of three precisely for use in household worship

The worship is done standing up for the whole duration

Exceptions would be pregnant women and sick or weak members

For the time of sharing,

both men and women may meet together,

or the men can meet separately (at a different part of the home) from the

depending on what is to be taken up,

at the discretion of the household head

However,

it should be a separate meeting

Some advantages of this are as follows: *

Members are more free to share,

especially of their difficulties,

when their spouses are not around

Practically speaking,

there would not be enough time (at least quality time) for everyone to share in a joint meeting

It's an opportunity for the husbands to be supported by the brothers as men,

and the wives by the sisters as women

The household can tackle two different topics in one meeting,

addressing itself to the different needs of the men and the women in the group

The last part,

A very simple snack is usually prepared by the host couple

Here it must be kept in mind that the food is incidental to the fellowship,

rather than the fellowship being centered on the food

Furthermore,

no member should be burdened by the snack's cost or needed time for preparation,

nor should any host ever be pressured in "keeping up" with a fellow member's extravagance

Grace before the meal is said by the host

The evening ends with a short closing prayer by the head

Duration a

Ordinarily,

the household meeting is held after dinner on a weekday

However,

other mutually acceptable times are possible

The whole meeting would typically run for about 2 1/2 hours,

Of course,

there is some flexibility and there could be variations on the above time frames

As much as possible,

household meetings should start at the agreed time,

even if not everyone has arrived

The household head should not wait for everyone

He should not make the meeting and everyone else a captive of someone else's lack of commitment to punctuality

Besides,

this may be the only way to get chronic latecom-

So if necessary,

the household head should start the worship even if only he,

his wife and the host couple are around

The meeting should not end too late,

If the meeting can start earlier,

If the meeting goes beyond 11 p

this should be the exception rather than the rule

Social night a

The household may decide to have a social night on occasion

A social night is a time devoted to fellowship,

It is recommended that a social night be held once a quarter,

on the month where there is a 5th week

If the members want to have a social night more often,

then it should be done outside the time allocated for regular household meetings

Some possibilities: meet during the prayer meeting week

or have a Lord's Day celebration together

Various activities are possible

Members may have dinner together,

or go out somewhere together (at a party,

or even decide to have a whole-day outing

This could be a time when their children would be brought along,

so that they might get to know everyone else's children

There is a lot of flexibility,

and the idea is just to enjoy each other's company socially and become intimate friends as well as brothers and sisters in the Lord

TOPICS FOR MEETINGS 1

For the first year (for new members right after the CLP),

the household meetings are used to follow up on the topics in the teaching program

Thus the first year would look like this: 3 months

Manuals are provided for each of the three "Follow up" phases

In the second year and beyond,

the topics for the household meetings would normally follow the following cycle: 1st week 2nd week 3rd week 4th week

(general prayer meeting) personal sharing Bible sharing discussion of a Christian topic

The above cycle provides enough variety so as to make household meetings always interesting and life-giving

This cycle could go on and on,

Of course,

the household head is free to deviate from this cycle as he sees fit

Personal sharing Personal sharing is telling our brothers and sisters about what has been happening in our lives for the past month,

with a particular focus on what the Lord has been doing in our lives

Personal sharing is an essential element in building up our relationship with our brothers and sisters,

as more and more we open up our lives to them and they become an intimate part of our lives

If the household head opts for personal sharing,

it can either be done by just encouraging the members to share as they are led,

or by using a set of questions which can guide the members in their sharing

As a framework to provide shape and direction,

questions can be an effective means to lively personal interaction

One can develop and use one's own questions,

just so long as they suit the needs of the members and can effectively draw out people

Sample questions are as follows: * * * * * *

How have you grown in your relationship with the Lord

? Have you come before the Lord faithfully in personal prayer

? In what ways were you aware of the Lord's presence or action in your life during the past week/month

? What has the Lord been teaching you in your prayer time or Scripture study this week/month

? Have you conducted yourself righteously in thought,

? In what ways has the Lord used you to serve others this past week/month

? What change has the Lord been asking you in order that you might grow in loving your brothers and sisters

Bible sharing Bible sharing is a way for us to be more familiar with the Word of God,

as we share about it every month

Bible sharing is not Bible study as such,

but a way of drawing insights from the Bible and allowing God to speak to us personally through His written Word

Various methods of Bible sharing could be utilized

We however recommend the "7 step" method of Bible sharing

Topical discussion This is a time for formal discussion of a Christian topic

These topics could be anything that have to do with the Christian life,

which would be profitable for our members to gain a greater understanding of

Especially recommended are those topics which have to do

For example,

personal daily prayer time daily reading of the Bible living fully the Christian life

family life and children headship and submission in the family disciplining and raising children Christian service Christian fellowship priority setting/weekly schedule TV and media spiritual gifts

Furthermore,

sharings or teachings may provide the impetus for a household meeting topic,

Teachings contained in our newsletter,

Topics contained in the various books that we publish

Articles of interest in "God's Word Today" or other similar prayer or Scripture guides

Teachings or exhortations given at the monthly prayer meeting

Taped talks or teachings by renowned personages

It should be noticed that this cycle of topics for the second year and beyond is such that there is no burden on the household head to be always thinking up of what to take up during the household meetings

For personal sharing,

the household head (and his wife for the sisters) would simply moderate the sharings and keep the interaction active and life-giving

For the Bible sharing,

the household head merely chooses the particular verses to be taken up

For the topical discussion,

the household head chooses the topic,

taking from the vast array of materials available to him

If for example he takes up the "Growing in the Lord" article in the Ugnayan,

even the discussion starters are already provided

Thus he simply moderates the discussion

Thus the household leaders are not burdened by "technical" preparation for the meetings,

but can focus more on "spiritual" preparation

This cycle is something the household head is free to follow or not

The household head has a good amount of flexibility as to how to handle the household meeting and what to take up

The important thing is that the conduct of the meeting contributes to the achievement of the stated purpose of our having households,

and that is to build an environment of support for the Christian life of our members

RELATIONSHIP WITH THE UNIT HEAD 1

The Unit Head is the pastor of the unit to which households belong

As such,

he has overall responsibility for the service of household heads in his unit

The Unit Head has the authority coming from the CFC Council to back him up

As such,

the household head needs to look to him with respect and in obedience with regard to his service

The household head needs to look upon his Unit Head as someone there for him,

to help him perform his duties more effectively

The household head should not look upon his household as his own turf which is not to be invaded by his Unit Head

The household head is to be fully open to his Unit Head and be eager to have his input on any matter involving his service

The household head focuses on facilitating discussion and developing brotherhood and sisterhood in the household group

He is not expected to exercise pastoral leadership over the group,

but he would normally encounter certain pastoral challenges which he should refer to his Unit Head

The household head,

either singly or together with other household heads of the unit,

meets with the Unit Head once a month for a service meeting

The meeting shall dwell on any or all of the following: a

Reporting in general on how the members of the household are doing

Receiving pastoral guidance and direction in handling of couples

Discussion and resolution of problems or issues brought up

Report on faithfulness in attendance (at household meetings,

prayer meetings and other activities) and in financial giving

Identification of and discussion of training exposure for potential leaders

Administrative matters

The household head needs to keep the Unit Head informed and updated regarding his

since the Unit Head does not have regular direct contact with them but is,

still responsible for everyone

Thus occasional feedback and the regular monthly service meeting are essential

Following are some areas of pastoral concern for the Unit Head: a

Household

* * * * *

Are the men relating to one another well

? Are they free to share with one another

? Do they worship freely together

? Do they ever do anything together outside of the household meeting

? How is their general attitude towards CFC

Individual members

? * Relationship with authority

Time and service

? * How are they experiencing their service

? * Are they growing in confidence

GROUP ACTIVITIES 1

Aside from what has been taken up as proper to the activities of a household group,

there are many other things that can be done as well

It is up to the household head to discern the needs of his members individually and as a group,

These other activities may be in lieu of the normal household activity (with approval of the Unit Head) or in addition to it

Some such activities are: a

Healing sessions/praying over Intercessory prayers One-to-one Video sessions Socials (sports,

Other activities are welcome so long as they make a positive contribution to the support and strengthening of the Christian life of couples,
