A quick look at Small Group Leader Training

SGLT Sem Title


Small Group Leader Training is designed to transform small group ministry and renew your love for Jesus by training you to lead interactive Bible studies. Imagine being able to lead a Bible study with confidence in your small group or Sunday school or even at work or in your neighborhood!  You'll learn a new skill while you deepen your love for Jesus and Scripture. Join us for a day of wonder and encouragement as we discover together the beauty of Jesus!


How Does the Training Work?

  • This seminar is set up like a small group where everyone is an involved learner. As our template, we use the Person of Jesus study.

  • Before the Seminar: Trainees will receive the lesson they will be leading, via email, a week in advance of the seminar. They will need to read through it multiple times prior to the seminar.

  • Friday Evening: Those trainees leading the same lesson will meet in a group with a trainer and get "focused feedback" as they teach through a portion of their lesson, being interrupted throughout the lesson.

  • Saturday All Day: Each trainee teaches his lesson straight through for 40 minutes to a small group of 5-8 people, with evaluation after each lesson.

  • Note: You may register as a participant and not lead a lesson if you'd like to explore and experience the approach before being trained, but everyone is encouraged to interact and participate.

Pre-requisites for Registering

Trainees must have either have attended a small group using seeJesus materials or a Person of Jesus seminar, or watched a lesson taught online. ("Grace for a Broken Woman" or "Interactive Method-Paul Miller leading The Person of Jesus")
