Leading a Journey into Luke: A Training Day


Saturday, 2 February 2019, 9.30am to 3pm
Offered simultaneously in person in Montreal and online in a Zoom classroom

Studying the Bible builds a culture of discipleship, promotes greater engagement with the Christian faith, and offers leadership roles to lay members of congregations. But many people feel poorly equipped to lead a Bible study.

This training day gives people the confidence and curriculum necessary to lead a 5-week Bible study on the Gospel of Luke, the centrepiece of the lectionary for the current year. The Gospel of Luke is an inviting, expansive, and generous interpretation of the ministry of Jesus and studying this gospel leads us deeper into Christ’s love for the world. Sessions at the training day will include an overview of the gospel and its themes, skills and pointers for facilitating a group study (what happens if someone talks too much? what happens if I don’t know the answer to a question?), and a review of a specially-designed curriculum for use in leading a Bible study. Participants will leave with a Bible study curriculum about Luke to use in their congregations, whether during Lent or at some other time during the year.

Deadline for registrations: Monday, January 28. Registrations received after this date will be charged a late fee of $20

$50 per person
$25 for members of Montreal Dio Corporation or for the second or subsequent person to attend from the same congregation.
