If you are ever asked to lead a small group, it can seem intimidating. What is going to be expected of you? What happens if people don’t come? How do I handle questions that I can’t answer? These and other thoughts can make you doubt your ability to lead.
Ryan Lokkesmoe addresses the concept of being a small group leader from a practical standpoint. Giving reassurance that you don’t have to be perfect or know all there is to know about the topic, he shares how to lead the group. His tips are simple and easy to put into use. Additionally, he includes 12 topics and brief outlines that you can use to prepare yourself for the leadership role, or to use in the group itself.
Though the book is short, there are many helpful tips in it, and they can be used by anyone that leads a Bible study. The one that stuck with me is to keep meeting. I’ve been in classes, both leading and learning, where attendance fluctuated. It can be easy to get discouraged and want to give up, but sometimes we have to wait out the bumps.
