​As You Coordinate The Study Itself…

“FROM THE BIBLE STUDY WING : ORIENTATION GUIDE ”

It is not about the amount of information you pour into them but what through the Holy Spirit you let members  see; the truths for themselves through Scripture or quotes.

1.) Let the members know the scope of the study in order not to waste time on issues outside the scope of study.
2.) Avoid turning a bible study into comprehension exercises. Ask effective questions. Where members seem not to get a particular question very well, the study leader must reframe the question very well to be understandable without losing its purpose and meaning.
3.) Don’t be afraid of silence especially after a question requiring a careful thought.
4.) Never say that an answer or viewpoint is wrong. But tactfully ask, “In what verse did you find that?” or “how did you arrive at that?” or “what does somebody else think about this point?”
5.) Be observant and draw all members in. Encourage shy members to participate; reading a verse or asking direct and simple questions.
6.) Learn how to handle talkative members very well. Direct questions to others instead to avoid one from monopolizing the discussion.
7.) Encourage members to respond from the bible.
8.) Be sincere and honest when you have no idea about something. Tell the person you intend to find out later and give him the answer.
