Upcoming Events › Group Discipleship: Guiding Relational Learning
Based on the manual Group Discipleship: Connecting Life and Truth, PeerEquip.
Do you back away from leading Bible Studies or discipleship groups because you lack confidence or don’t know what to do? Do you sense that your teaching could be more interactive and dynamic? This module coaches us in the art of facilitating growth through relationship and discussion. Making the shift from “teaching as telling” to “guide on the side” allows the kind of relational experiences that nurture lifetime disciples – and it’s something that many of us can learn to do more effectively than lecture! Guided peer-learning frees us to connect the truth of God’s Word with the realities of our lives, using any good content of your choice well. Group learning involves becoming a co-learner and a guide, actively listening, preparing good questions that guide toward discovery, staying on track by building continuity, building trust and respect among members, and designing discipleship experiences that transform and multiply. Besides being a key shift in teaching style to engage the next generation, these are life skills that apply to small group Bible Studies, home groups, ministry teams, web-based meetings, and to the variety of conversations we have daily with people around us! Some advance preparation. (www.PeerEquip.com)
