Great article by Ken Braddy on the need for training our Bible Study leaders.
I’m a big fan of training group leaders. In fact, one author I just read in the last 30 days says that if you aren’t going to train your leaders, you shouldn’t bother enlisting them in the first place. He says that a commitment to lead (on the part of the volunteer) calls for a reciprocal commitment on the part of the church to provide training. I agree.
I have just begun a part-time ministry on a church staff here in the Nashville area. One of the first things I did was to create a year-long training plan for the group leaders. I used a new resource from LifeWay to do this quickly and easily. In fact, I had a year-long plan in just 20 minutes. We begin our first training event on February 11!
