Small Groups are a great start to a support network, but we have so many ways of relating to people inside and outside of the group setting. Counseling & Accountability are great when you are behind on an issue and know it. Coaching and Training are ideal when you are healthy at the very least, and looking to excel. Mentoring helps when your halfway there. Knowing what kind of relationship to form comes down to knowing how healthy you are on any given issue at hand.
All these relationships are temporary and goal oriented. When you achieve your goals for forming the relationship, you either terminate the relationship or establish a new goal. Your support network should change as often as you change.
