Work History

Group members share their more interesting past jobs.

What was your favorite job, or your most strange or unusual job?

Leader note: This is a great icebreaker to use early on in a new life group, for people to get to know each other and get the chance to make each other laugh. Plus when you hear people’s favorite job, you can gain insights as a leader into their passions and talents and what brings them joy. It even helps create some “running jokes” that can carry on in the group, which deepen the sense of connectedness. It can also be used for a discussion about faith at work, or calling and purpose.
