Best Practices for Missional Community Bible Study Facilitation

  • As you begin each study, pray that God will speak to you through his Word.
  • Listen attentively to other members. Encourage only Bible reading from phones during the study.
  • Work to include everyone’s voice by asking follow-up questions, restating what you heard someone say, and asking for more details to thoughts given by group members.
  • It is often helpful for someone to take notes of the discussion and send them out afterwards to reinforce key learnings from the study.
  • Pray for one another and be accountable to applying the word of God to your lives.
