Church Wide Bible Study Topics?

  29 views

Does anyone know of a Bible Study that can be used for an entire Church that helps people grow in a deeper relationship with the Lord? That will cause them to be more involved in their relationship with God. As well as cause them to live lives more abundantly in Jesus. I find there is a real disconnect between the lives that we live and the ones we should be living as Christians!

Nicole, so sorry for getting back to you on this so late.

Are you a small group leader or director for your church?  You're right about the disconnect between the lives we live and the one's we should be living.  There are many church-wide campaigns for what you are asking, but they are only as effective as your church's discipleship plan and system allow them to be.  If you've been reading some of my latest blogs you'll know what I'm talking about: Are Small Groups Just Another Program? Thinking of a Discipled Person in particular.

Probably the single most effective thing that changes people's lives in small groups is when they learn to serve and do mission together.  Combining that with a solid discussion and study as well as sharing testimonies of how God impacted their lives is key to move people toward spiritual growth.  Oh yeah, the pastor and leadership have to be in small groups as well as the small group ministry champions in order for it all to work well.  Follow up is also essential after a church-wide campaign.

Have you spoken to your pastor and leadership about your concerns?
