This Month’s Podcast

Most small group ministry leaders would agree that Bible study is a significant part of a small group. Yet, do our groups engage meaningfully with Scripture or are they just bouncing off verses during meetings?

  • How well do we train our group leaders on working through a passage of the Bible and helping members interpret and understand God’s Word for themselves?
  • What can we do to increase our engagement with God’s Word in groups?
