Identify Your Top 5
Top 5 is the language we use to describe the five people in our lives we are praying would come to know Jesus. These may be family members, friends, co-workers, neighbors, or people from our community. Whoever they are, God has placed them in our lives for us to love, serve, pray for, and intentionally reach in hope they will come to a saving faith in Jesus.
Pray for Your Top 5
As a people of prayer, we believe prayer makes a difference. One of the ways we live this out, is through a daily practice of praying for our Top 5. Carve out some time, maybe in the middle of your day, to step away from what you’re doing and pray for your Top 5 by name. The important thing is not how long you pray, but creating a daily habit of spending time with God, asking him to work in the lives of those you love and to give you his heart for each of them.

B.L.E.S.S. Your Top 5
When it comes to loving and serving our Top 5, we use the acronym “BLESS”. This acronym reminds us to begin with prayer, listen to our friends, eat with them, serve them, and share our story with them. These simple everyday practices help us to build Gospel relationships with our friends and family in a natural way.
