Leading a Bible study is no small task. It requires study, prayer, and preparation to be able to lead a group discussion on God’s Word. And, we know group leaders have multiple work and family responsibilities in a typical week, so prep time can be hard to find.
We’re here to help! In addition to the printed Leader Guide or QuickSource Leader Guide, our team offers some online helps for busy leaders. These release each Sunday at goexplorethebible.com/blog.
Our Leader Guide offers an easy to follow, step-by-step teaching plan. But, what if you’d like to connect the lesson to what’s happening in the world today? Each week we provide an Extra Idea leaders can incorporate into their teaching that connects the topic of study to current events. This is only found online and isn’t included in the printed Leader Guide. It’s extra!
Weekly Leader Training Podcast
Each week our team hosts a 20-minute podcast that offers a glimpse into that week’s lesson. Our team leader is joined by guest hosts to discuss the passage and answer some common questions that group members may have about what you’ll study. Find this on podcasting apps like Spotify, Stitcher, or Apple podcasts.
How can a leader get the most out of the leader resources available? What about practical tips for engaging group members each week? Don’t miss this weekly blog article. Articles (like this one!) release each Thursday and offer best practices for using Explore the Bible resources as well as tried-and-true principles for ministering to the people in your group.
Leading a Bible study group takes time and effort—but it doesn’t have to be a solo endeavor! We’d like to support you in any way we can. These online helps are designed to enrich your preparation so you’ll be ready to lead a great Bible study. We are grateful for you!
