Guidelines

Curriculum:

Consists of Andrew Wommack study guides. We recommend that each new group start with Spirit, Soul, and Body.

Bible Study Scheduling:

The Group Leader will have the option of meeting 1x/week, 2x/week, 3x/week, bi-weekly or monthly. If you choose to meet bi-weekly, you may want to consider completing two lessons each time you meet. One lesson, on average, takes one hour to complete; Two lessons, two hours.

NOTE:

People oftentimes choose studies based on any or all of the following:

1. Day of the week

2. Meeting times

3. Frequency

4. Duration

5. Location

Whatever decisions you make regarding the schedule of your study, we suggest that you try to be consistent throughout your study so that all attended may plan their schedules accordingly.

Frequency & Duration of Study:

Below is the optional duration and frequency of Spirit, Soul, and Body. (23 lessons)

NUMBER OF LESSONS FREQUENCY DURATION
1 lesson 1 hour per week = 6 months
2 lessons 2 hours per week = 3 months
3 lessons 3 hours per week = 1.5 months
2 lessons 2 hours bi-weekly = 6 months
1 lesson 1 hour per month = 2 years

After completing Spirit, Soul, and Body, the Group Leader may select the next study based on the needs of the group. For Example: Some attendees in a group may be dealing with sickness. Therefore, the Group Leader may choose “God Wants You Well” for the next study to address healing. Or, attendees of another group may be struggling with finances. As a result, the Group Leader may choose the study “Financial Stewardship” to address prosperity.

We suggest that each Group Leader complete two studies in one year. However, we realize this may not be possible due to personal schedules. Nevertheless, in order to post the next bible study, we suggest submitting all required information online four to six weeks prior to the start date. Available study guides range in length from 14 to 26 lessons.

Bible Study Structure:

The Group Leader will have the option of meeting in their homes or a public location. We ask that the Group Leader provide a suitable meeting place for the study. The maximum capacity will be left to the discretion of the Group Leader depending on the size of the meeting location. The Group Leader will have the option of conducting, co-ed, men only or women only Bible Studies. Childcare will be left to the discretion of the Group Leader depending on the needs of the group.
