While it may seem trite, choosing a Bible Study is one of the most important things a group leader does. When a group leader chooses the right study at the right time for the right group of people, life’s questions are answered and embraced, people are given the information they need to defend their faith, the gospel becomes known and integrated into everyday life, and people choose to follow Christ.
Here are a few essential questions to consider when choosing your next Bible study:
1. Is the group made up mostly of Christ followers or people who are inquisitive about Jesus and Christianity?
If the group is mostly inquisitive not yet followers of Christ choose a study that is focused on the Explore the Bible.
