General Leader Tips

An exhaustive Leader's Guide is located in the back of the Christian Study Guide. Additionally, if you find yourself as the lead facilitator of the discussion questions, here are three things to consider:

CULTIVATE DISCUSSION

It is the ideas of everyone in the group that make a group meeting successful. Your role as the leader is to create an environment in which people feel safe to share their thoughts.

STAY ON TRACK

While you want to leave space for group members to think through the discussion, make sure the conversation is contributing to the topic being discussed that session. Don’t let it veer off on tangents. Go with the flow, but be ready to nudge the conversation in the right direction when necessary.

PRAY

This is the most important thing you can do as a leader and as a group. Pray that God is not only present at your group meetings, but that he is directing them.
