Abstract
Eight couples engaged in regular "one another" encouragement to see what impact this would have on their practice of incarnational ministry. For nearly a year, they met in ministry transformation group clusters approximately twice a month. Five "one another" activities were jointly practiced-praying, sharing "God Stories," words of encouragement, learning, and on occasion, connecting for ministry beyond the meetings. Comparative before and after surveys showed participants came to embrace a more organic approach to ministry. They reported greater internationality in relational ministry, as well as increased commitment to pray, use "God stories," and pursue lifelong learning in ministry.
