Open the Book: Practical tips for leading Bible study
This fall, we will again offer—free of charge—three webinars to train teachers in 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.
The series will be 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. The sessions will be offered at 7:30pm Central Time on Tuesdays: September 26, October 24 and November 28.
Don’t Mourn or Weep: Goals and problems, will focus 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, will cover the things you do to lead a discussion well.
A Unified Purpose: Preparing to lead, will give guidance on how to prepare by doing some background study, develop your theme, and write discussion questions.
