Hi, I'm Melanie Newton. I am just a regular woman. I don’t have a
seminary degree. I just love Jesus and the Word of God. And, I have
learned from Jesus and the women mentors He’s given me through the years
how to step above my insecurities to lead a Bible Study with confidence
My ministry mission is to help women learn to study the Bible for themselves
Joyful Walk Bible Studies) and to grow their Bible-teaching skills to lead others on a joyful walk with Jesus. That's why I created Bible Study Leadership Made Easy.
Is Jesus prompting you to lead a Bible Study, but you don’t know how to start? Are you afraid that you don’t know enough of the Bible to do this? Does the thought of directing a discussion make you quiver? Everyone feels that way at first. Really! You are so in the right place.
Bible Study Leadership Made Easy will show you how to start a Bible study group,
how to choose a good study for your group, and how to take each lesson
and make a plan for leading the discussion. We will also address some
common challenges (like excessive talkers, rabbit trails) that arise as you are leading a Bible study.
Bible Study Leadership Made Easy is designed to get you moving forward as a new Bible study leader or to give you extra help if you already have some experience at leading a study for a group. And, you will gain a stronger reliance on Jesus to do this all by faith.
We are to be God-dependent in everything we do, whether we are really good at it or shaking in our boots. Actually, just going through this course will make you want to at least try leading a Bible Study, get stretched by Jesus, and rely on Him more. :)
With this course, you can pick and choose which videos to watch that meet your needs as a current leader or work through the whole course to get "trained" and ready to lead. You can download and print reusable worksheets or buy an already printed workbook if that works best for you.
Just say yes to Jesus, “I will do this, Lord. Please help me.” Jump into the adventure. Jesus is with you every step of the way! And, His promise is far greater than mine. Trust Him.
Bible Study Leadership Made Easy. Are you read for adventure? Yes! Let's do this together!
