IFD189 – Adapting Any Resource to Fit Your Small Group
Course Dates: Use button below to hear about new dates
The book you found for your group would be just perfect if … if only it were longer, shorter, had a study guide, had better questions, more questions, practical applications … and so on. Need some quick and easy ways to get your resource ready and relevant? Choose and bring the resource you want to use to this course. We’ll use it to bridge the gap between what you have and what you want for your small group. In our week long Bible study, you will adapt your resource, learn tools to adapt other resources, and help your peers with ideas for other materials that might fit your small group as well. Don’t pass up that devotion, magazine, or book because it is too long, too short, or too different–let’s work together to tailor it to your group and see how best to suit you.
