Small-Group Four Packs
Four Pack: Transformational Bible Studies
Five tools to help you lead excellent Bible studies
This Four Pack includes all five of the Training Tools listed below.
Leading a Great Small-Group Bible Study
Most churches' small groups are study groups. Most study groups are Bible study groups, or use thematic curriculum based on Scripture. This tool will help you learn how to create a climate of growth and community within your Bible study group, including ways to use the group to reach seekers. Find out methods of private Bible study to prepare for each group session, and discover how to guide stimulating discussions.
Discussing Doctrine and Theology
For many group leaders, doctrinal and theological discussions are frightening territory. But they don't have to be.
This resource has been specially designed with two purposes: 1) To help group leaders better understand the art of facilitating a theological discussion, and 2) To provide easy-to-follow Doctrinal Guides that will help clarify many confusing aspects of what Christians believe.
Choosing and Evaluating Bible Studies
Bible studies and other forms of curriculum are a big part of most small groups. The good news is that material for Bible studies and discussions is not hard to find. The bad news is that high quality, transformative Bible studies are rare.
Use the assessments in this downloadable training resource in two ways. First, they can help you identify which studies are of the highest quality before you distribute them to your small groups. Second, they can help you assess how well a study performed after a group has used it.
How to Prepare for a Bible Study
There are few elements more important to a small group than the act of gathering together to study God's Word and its impact on our lives. Unfortunately, most group leaders receive very little training when it comes to the critical process of preparing study material for their groups. That's where this resource can help.
"How to Prepare for a Bible Study" is an effective tool for group leaders who write their own studies, but also for leaders seeking to adapt an existing study to the needs of their specific group. The articles and resources here can fill in many gaps when it comes to writing great discussion questions, engaging different learning styles, assigning homework, and much more.
Exegesis and Hermeneutics for Small Groups
Unfortunately, exegesis and hermeneutics are terms often only found in seminary textbooks, and are not common with everyday Christians. But they should be-or at least their principles should be. The fact is that we all interpret the Bible every time we read it, and it's helpful to have some principles to rely on so that we're interpreting the Bible faithfully.
This resource will help you better prepare for Bible study with your small group and give you tips on leading your small-group members in interpreting the Bible.
