How to lead a 3/3rd’s group

LOOK BACK (1/3 of your time)


Share a meal, a refreshment, a story from this week, or an answer to prayer. How has everyone’s personal relationship with God been? If anyone is struggling, pray for him/her, and stay after to care for that person.

Check-up (never skip)

  • How have you obeyed what you have learned?
  • Who have you trained in what you have learned?
  • With whom have you shared your story or God’s story?


Share a story from the Bible, a personal story, an inspiring slogan or song to encourage one another to share Jesus with others, to start new groups, and to help others do the same. You can use one of the following Bible passages to get started: Matthew 28:18-20, Luke 10:1-11, Acts1:8, Luke 19:1-10, Matthew 13:1-23.

LOOK UP (1/3 of your time)

Read and discuss the passage for the week...

  1. What did you like about this passage?
  2. What did you find difficult about this passage?
  3. What does this passage teach about people?
  4. What does this passage teach about God?

LOOK FORWARD (1/3 of your time)

Write the commitments down...

OBEY - TRAIN - SHARE (never skip)

Have everyone in the group pray for the spirit to show them how to answer these questions, then make commitments. Write the commitments down.

  1.  How will you obey this passage?
  2.  Who will you train with this passage?
  3.  With whom will you share your story or the story of God?

PRACTICE (never skip)

In groups of two or three, practice what you have committed to do in question 5, 6 or 7. For example, role- play a difficult conversation or facing a temptation; practice teaching today’s passage, or practice sharing the Gospel.

Talk with God

In groups of two or three, pray for every member individually. Ask God to prepare the hearts of the people who will be hearing about Jesus this week. Ask Him to give you the strength to be obedient to your commitments.
