James “Tank” Lewis and Tom Burns will develop and pilot a small group-meeting approach to recruiting people of color, especially those who are not affiliated with any of the larger more prominent and influential churches and organizations in our community. We will do the following:
- Identify potential member-leaders and invite them to meet with us and other invitees in small groups of 5-8 persons to hear their concerns for our community.
- Meet, listen, record, synthesize and report back to meeting participants and other S&U member-leaders.
- Invite further participation with S&U in additional small group meetings, house meetings, and monthly S&U meetings.
- Seek commitments from participants to serve as S&U member-leaders.
