PostSubject: Small Group Discipleship Training   Mon Feb 18, 2013 9:16 pm

Have you ever considered having a bible study at your house but didn't know where  to begin?
Have you ever felt like you  want to have a get together with people but didn't know what material to lead from?
Have you ever felt like you didn't know enough to teach or lead a group but wouldn't mind coordinating it?
Have you heard of small groups but never went to one, yet still think they sound appealing? 

I fell into a couple of  those categories before I tried them myself. My church found a system for small group discipleship from another church and it works because it's simple. People are built for relationships. Small group get-togethers build closeness. The bible calls us to go and make disciples of all nations. This training focuses on how to be a disciple builder through sharing and understanding the bible.
  This training is geared toward training you to facilitate a group; suggest bible stories, manage the time spent with the group, gage where others in the group are spiritually, and how to help individuals get to the next spiritual step. It's not geared to make you a street evangelist or a televangelist. In a small group the material you use is the bible. You tell a bible story and then discuss it. Open discussion about the story with the group allows you to facilitate without having to hold a degree in divinity. 

The training that I am speaking of happens in a small group setting and hopes to model a group that you might one day lead. We'll meet one day a week for 2 hours on Sunday nights (flexible to move to Sat if by group decision). The training is free, though there is a $15 manual that goes with the training. The manual has daily assignments that take  approximately 15 minutes to work through like a devotional. Each week we will discuss what you worked through in the manual. It's a co-ed group but you don't have to be married to attend. I am asking for a high level of commitment to the manual and the group. We will meet for 16 weeks. Believe me, time flies by. Did I mention we will have snacks?  I live near Catonsville, MD. My class is almost full and I plan to kick off March 3rd. PM me to reserve a slot or have questions.

Thank you so much for doing this! Dennis and I have been hosting a small group for a couple of years now and it is so worth it. We took a similar training program through our church and it really did help us understand a little more on how to focus a study. big grin

I hope some folks will take advantage of your kind offer. What time is your kickoff class on March 3rd?

We will start at 6pm for the first meeting. Then the group will decide if that fits them best and we try to stick with it. Time changes week to week causes a lot of confusion among the group. We are even flexible to move it to Saturday if the group needs to.
