Leader Training

Foundations Leader Training Guide

  • The Foundations Leader Training Guide explains how to lead our discipleship Bible studies one-on-one or in a small group by asking questions and guiding the discussion so that everyone participates.  
  • The leader does not teach but guides discussion so that people discover for themselves what the Bible says.
  • All discussion questions are contained in the Bible study lessons. 
  • Part of the process of leading a group is to identify potential future leaders and prepare them to also lead these discipleship materials. 
  • This is how to make multiplying disciples, and this is what Paul told Timothy.

You have heard me teach things that have been confirmed by many reliable witnesses. Now teach these truths to other trustworthy people who will be able to pass them on to others – II Timothy 2:2  NLT
