Driver training is another important aspect of CBSI’s work in Bulgaria. It can take the form of full-day or half-day seminars at the request of interested churches or Christian groups. The training includes the following main practical themes:
Organize a small group
Although informal and free in nature, the small Bible study group has its peculiarities. Is there a natural approach to its formation and what is it? How many people it should consist of? What are the advantages of the small group as a place for biblical learning and spiritual growth? What is its dynamics? How can the ministry in small groups contribute to building the local church?
Leading a small group
The leader of the small group plays an important role in its functioning and development. What knowledge and skills should he possess? What exactly are his responsibilities? How do I really have to run a collection under his guidance? What are the typical challenges that he will face?
Preparing for an edification on a Bible passage
According to our program, Biblical study in small groups may have one more step: instruction by a trained teacher. It should deepen listeners’ understanding of the particular biblical passage and induce them to practice the truths found in it. How to prepare a concise, convincing and inspirational lesson? How to formulate his subject and present consistently and interestingly? How to achieve better interaction with listeners?
