Facilitating a Bible study is hard.
Sometimes it’s really, really hard.
You have to manage the:
- Prayer requests
- Different personalities
It can be overwhelming!
New facilitators often receive little training and struggle to find their way.
Seasoned facilitators often feel like their group’s just not going as well as it could or should.
I get it. I’ve been there.
I know what it’s like to have a group that struggles to share, connect, and attend each week.
I also know what it’s like to have a group that runs over weekly because they can’t stop sharing!
God’s blessed me with some excellent training and more “learning opportunities” than I’d like to admit!
I’ve pulled it all together in this online training to share with you.
I’m sharing the best tips and techniques that I’ve gathered and gleaned from almost 20 years of attending and leading Bible studies.
I want to help you craft a plan that’s going to allow you to be the best Bible study facilitator possible.
We’ll look at the little things that can make a big difference in your group’s attendance and participation.
