I love to study the Bible with others, helping them to discover more of Jesus as we delight in God’s word together. Here I’ve gathered resources and curriculum for this purpose. The top section consists of materials I’ve personally put together. The second section gives resources from many others, including everything from books, to websites, to Bible studies.
Discipleship with Direction – an eBook for Multiplying Disciples. A brief overview of what reproducible discipleship can look like.
ABC Bible Journaling – a simple tool to help anyone begin reading the Bible for themselves
Inductive Bible Study – a simple, clear handout to get anyone started on inductive Bible Study (manuscript style, or Observation, Interpretation, Application).
The Journey to Spiritual Friendship– a chart that demystifies the process of befriending a person who is disinterested and disconnected from Christ, and walking with them toward further connection and curiosity. Podcast explanation here.
Learning to Say, “No” – for students who overcommit or want to do everything, a helpful handout for handling requests for your time, money, or energy.
