Leading Interactive Bible Studies (L.I.B.S. ™) is a 2-hour workshop designed to enhance your Bible teaching tool kit, so that all participants in your Bible Study Classes will be inspired to persist in study and personal application of the Word of God. In the first session, we will introduce the components of the L.I.B.S. ™ template. In the second session, guided by the Holy Spirit, participants will utilize the L.I.B.S.™ template to prepare, present, and create a Bible Study during the workshop. Each participant will share highlights of the Bible Study and receive feedback from classmates and workshop leaders.

In an age where technology has afford us the opportunity to have all the information we might want at the tip of our fingers, we might find it hard to reach-out to our youth, but in reality things have not changed that much. The young-adults, or emerging adults as some psychologists refer to this age group of 18–25 year olds, are in constant search for their identity and feel compelled to try new things and experiences. This is where we, as teachers and mentors, must focus our efforts. We should strive to be part of those experiences, helping to reveal what God is teaching young leaders in their joureys.
