The purpose of a JGLM Lifeteam is to help Christians grow to maturity in Christ by fulfilling the Great Commission (Mark 16:15-18) and by producing spiritually mature Christians as efficiently and effectively as possible.
JGLM Lifeteams are small, easily reproducing teams of trained believers whose purpose is to reach their cities for Christ. The teams follow a systematic training program consisting of study as well as practice. The Lifeteam leader is responsible for the training, equipping and preparing of the members to do the works of Christ which means establishing the Kingdom of God here on earth by destroying the works of darkness.
