When we hear “teach the Word,” perhaps our minds jump to Bible study sessions or Bible Instruction Classes. But teaching the Word can also be done in a more individualistic way, encouraging the development of certain attitudes and skills. In this month’s issue, we’ll explore a LEAD group, where men are gathered around the Word with the express intent of developing as leaders. Something like this group could be useful in your situation. This example is an excellent way to begin brainstorming.
