Facilitator Tip 11 - Watch the Study How-to Videos on YouTube


I do my best to create a brief video for each small group study that our church. Here are a few of my recent ones:

These videos are designed to help you lead a small group and facilitate discussions specific to that study (whether it be topical, in a book of the Bible, etc.).

In the video I usually cover how you will want to prepare for your group, how to format your group, as well as some general facilitator tips, as well as an introduction to the study. I ask our small group leaders to watch each video and let someone on staff know if they have any questions. These videos are designed specifically for our leaders as well as made available for other people around the world that might also want to take small group through the text or study.
