Great Small Group Discussions for Students

Page 1


Sometimes leading small group discussion with teenagers becomes a time of begging for input.  Hayley Miller, with Word of Life Fellowship  offers a plan to trade in the awkward silence for quality discussion that will facilitate spiritual growth in your students.

Hayley's role and passion is for discipleship and diversity in ministry to youth. Word of Life is focused on reaching young people around the world with the gospel of Christ and teaching them how to walk with the Lord.  




Hayley has developed a purposeful plan for her small group time. When meeting with your students, remember to encourage peer interaction, connect the dots between the lesson and their lives, and include a time of accountability.

In your small group, do the students have opportunity to teach one another? How can you direct the discussion and what kind of questions can you ask that will lead to this kind of interaction?

Are you students involved in regular prayer and quiet time, Bible study, and Scripture memory? How do you help them connect these things to their real lives?

What is your system for accountability in your group? Do you challenge the students with goals? How do you keep up with all of these goals, and how do you follow up with the students? If you do not have answers to these questions, use this space to make a plan.

While you incorporate all of these things into your time with your students, don't forget to pray for them. Asking God to work in their individual lives will make the biggest impact of all the things you can do.
