Discovery Bible Studies
Discovery Bible studies is one of our favorite tools for seeing people become disciples of Jesus. The emphasis of Bible study format is an inductive approach in learning to be obedient to Jesus. Built on the foundation of the Word of God believers learn to share thankfulness and minister to one another’s needs. Believers’ are taught to hear God’s voice through their open Bible and to commit to intentional obedience as they reach out to others.

Discovery Bible Studies is one of the most relevant tools we use at many levels of ministry. It is easily replicated and when done well can multiply quickly. It is not a burdensome load on the moderator to lead a small group and we have found this format to be successful in reaching post-modern culture. This method of running small groups stimulates discussion and allows everyone to participate.
