Do you use or are you interested in using Discover Your Bible, Infuse, and/or Discover Life in your small group study? Are you involved in a Coffee Break (Bible discovery small group for evangelism and discipleship) ministry? Well, I have some exciting news for you! After many conversations with users of these studies and participants in this ministry, plans are underway for a “refresh” that will energize Bible discovery, invigorate small group leaders, and enliven the evangelistic mission of sharing God’s Word with our friends. With your help we hope to:
- Reignite communication between Coffee Break leadership: Get your leaders signed up for the new quarterly electronic newsletter. The first issue will come in early September. Please get all of your leaders, including your nursery and children’s ministry leaders to sign up using this form. Each newsletter will feature stories, ideas and inspiration for all leaders and everyone who signs up will receive a free downloadable book on leading Bible Discovery.
- Freshen up Coffee Break tools: Watch for a new look to appear in the website, newsletter, and materials. We are also testing a new printable format for Coffee Break Discover Your Bible studies.
- Experiment with new formats: Join a pilot project that will help shape the new changes. Ten or more groups will participate in a pilot project over the next ministry year to test a new downloadable format for the Discover Your Bible study materials and resources. This new format will allow groups to print just what they need when they need it. Throughout the year, the pilot group will meet online or by conference call to give input and feedback into the materials.

If you’re using Discover Your Bible, Infuse, or Discover Life materials—whether you are or aren’t part of a Coffee Break —ministry and would like to be part of this refresh, let us know! If you’re involved in a Coffee Break ministry you’ll want to participate too! So sign up and learn with us how to engage more people in God’s Word. We’re excited to do this together!
