This course is for you if:

  • Attendance in your group is steadily declining and you're at a loss of how to stop the exodus.
  • You're in a panic because you've been asked to lead a small group or Bible study at church.
  • God's been dropping hints that you can no longer ignore and you're ready to step forward in obedience to start a Bible study in your home.
  • Leading your Bible study group has become a struggle. Somewhere along the way you've lost control and want to get it back.
  • No one's ever offered you any kind of small group leader training and you want to learn what you can do to be the best group leader possible.
  • You're ready and willing to lead a Bible study group, but you've got no idea how to get started.
I found the whole course very beneficial. Lots of great suggestions, helpful points, PDFs, and examples which will benefit you in pulling off a successful, enriching Bible study experience for you and your participants. - Debbie Walker
