Note: To see a sample from this resource, check out This Is Why They Call You a "Leader"

There are many small-group leaders who approach the Bible-study portion of their group gatherings with something that is awfully close to dread. And that is a shame. There are several reasons why this happens, but most of them boil down to one basic idea: they are not sure what they are supposed to be accomplishing. Should they be helping their group members learn information and facts from the Bible? Is that most important? Or should they spend their time and effort making sure that as many group members participate as possible? Or should they try to spark some kind of controversy so that people engage in a debate?

In reality, none of those should be the primary goal for small-group leaders. Their focus during the Bible study should be the same as their focus for the rest of the group's activities: Transformation. Spiritual growth. Life change. That is what small groups are all about, and that is the subject of this downloadable resource.

Anna, is your pop-up blocked turned off? That's often the problem when you click on something and it doesn't work.

The link that was sent with my WELCOME did not work. When I clicked on "add to cart" - nothing went into the cart. Why say some thing is a bonus and free when it doesn't work. VERY DISAPPOINTED!!
