Respond to the felt needs of an individual by:
- Continuing to spend time deepening the friendship.
- Helping him or her at points of need, whatever they may be.
- Sharing his or her grace story as God gives opportunity.
The “Pray, Eat, Love” model should help our neighbors feel loved and invited into a genuine friendship with someone who wants him or her to experience the best that life has to offer. Additionally, this model will help our churches support our neighborhood groups with coordinated events to encourage our people and ministries to meet the real needs of our neighbors.
