Lead a Small Group

Leading a small group or bible study can be an enjoyable and rewarding experience. But it can also be scary - especially if you have not done this before. If this is your feeling, you're in good company. When God asked Moses to lead the Israelites out of Egypt, he replied 

"O Lord, send someone else to do it!" (Exodus 4:13). 

It was the same with Solomon, Jeremiah, Jonah and Timothy, but God helped these people in spite of their weaknesses, and He will help you too.

You don't need to be an expert in the Bible, or be trained as a teacher, to lead a small group or bible study. The leader is there to guide group members to discover for themselves what the Bible says.

It is important that anything said in the group remains confidential and not discussed outside of the group without permission. Trust is an important part of building relationships and confidentiality is a key to the growth of a small group. Listen attentively to each other and give time for each person to talk. Finally we pray for each other and be there in times of need and in celebration.

We also have mentors who are leading small groups and may mentor those who have a desire and potential to lead their own small groups. This is done at the person's own pace, and according to God's purpose and time.
