Just Do It Groups

Got an hour a week to invest in a viral plan to save the world from itself? If so, consider starting your own “Just Do It Group” with 2 or 3 friends. You don't have to register for anything, buy anything, report to anyone, or donate anywhere. You just do it.

You are not joining SYNCx.org (our official name) or any other organization. You are launching your group as one way of participating in the global movement God masterminded to connect, heal, and bless the world. Jesus is the spearhead of that movement, and his strategy is to put part of himself into people like you. Those people keep listening to him for their next assignment in his movement. They also cheer on other people who are doing the same thing.

Listen and cheer--that's what the world needs a lot more of. That's what you do in a Just Do It Group, on-line or face to face.

Can I use this Just Do It method in an existing "Bible study group," fellowship group, or other Christian small group?

Not recommended for groups larger than four, and even with three or four it is risky. Adding the Just Do It instruction sheet to an existing Bible study group has about the same chance of success as teaching a crocodile to dance. The croc just is not used to it, is not built for it, and may bite your head off when the music starts. The apparent challenge is to teach the croc to dance, but the real challenge is to change the nature of the croc. A dancing lesson won't do that.
