Who can lead The Bible Course?

The Bible Course is designed in a host/guest model, in which the role of the course leader is not to provide more teaching or instruction, but to be the host. This takes the pressure off and means that your primary focus can be showing great hospitality to the guests on the course.

To lead the course, you’ll need some time to prepare ahead of time, reviewing the material, and serving as a facilitator to the guests. We offer some exclusive and free resources to help hosts, so make sure to register your group here and stay tuned for more tips posted on our blog.

How should hosts/leaders prepare for each session of The Bible Course?

It’s advisable to watch the session beforehand and read through the manual to check the questions of the discussion time and suggested daily readings.

A few minutes before each session, we encourage hosts to make sure that technology is working fine before the guests arrive. Course leaders can also use the time to prepare any other arrangements, such as food and refreshments, if you decided to offer them for your group.

Who can participate in The Bible Course?

The course is suitable for people new to Christianity or for mature Christians wanting to increase their understanding of the Bible.

How long it takes to complete The Bible Course?

The course is divided in eight-sessions, and groups have the flexibility to plan their meetings according to their availability. Here are some popular ways in which the course has been delivered across Canada:

  • For 8 weeks, 1 session every week
  • For 16 weeks, 1 session every 2 weeks
  • For 4 weeks, 2 sessions every week
What happens after The Bible Course?

Often, when The Bible Course finishes, groups have formed real friendships and grown together, and don’t want it to stop. We suggest that, even before your group reaches the final session, you consider how you will follow on from The Bible Course. Session 8 will offer some great ideas for the next steps, both for individuals and groups.

A typical session includes:

  • Welcome from the course host
  • 30-minute teaching video
  • 25-minute discussion time
  • 10-minute personal reflection to finish

And there are daily readings between sessions.
