These videos are meant to give people tips on how to lead a Bible study. Two of our covenant practices involve studying the Bible together, so we want to equip our members to facilitate Bible studies.
This set of three videos is called, Open the Book: Practical tips for leading Bible study, based on the text in Nehemiah 8 when Ezra read the Book of the Law to the Isrealites as they returned from exile.
Don’t Mourn or Weep: Goals and problems focuses on the goal of Bible study and the role of the leader. It will also cover common problems we encounter in leading groups.
Listen Closely: Facilitating good discussion covers the things you do to lead a discussion well.
A Unified Purpose: Preparing to lead gives guidance on how to prepare by doing some background study, develop your theme, and write discussion questions.
