Being an Alongsider is not something you do alone. You are an Alongsider together with others. This can be your friends, your classmates or some others from the church you attend. Together you form the 'group of 5'.
The group of 5 is there so you can help and encourage each other. You travel together, pray and receive training from Alongsiders. We think relationships are very important and we share this with our younger brother or sister, but also with each other. It is cool that you will become an Alongsider but it is important that you do this together with at least 4 others. Therefore, mobilise your friends and people around you to participate.
For the people that you are going to mobilize, it is important that they know Jesus and want to follow Him, that they are between 15 and 30 years old and are actively involved in a church or community.
This is your chance to share 'Alongsiders', to get others around you excited, to inspire and involve them. This is your chance to get involved in a movement that is making a difference in the lives of children and young people around them.
OK, get to work: 'Gather your group of 5'!
