What is Storytelling / Oral Inductive Bible Study Method?

 

It is a teaching tool that brings a unique approach to the learning experience as it engages individuals in discovering the truths imbedded in every bible story. The group participation aspect to this way of learning brings a creative dynamic the bible study method which is inductive and oral at the same time.

 



The one day training session teaches you to be a presenter of Bible information which utilizes stories the way God gave them. How to tell stories interestingly and accurately, and how to teach using the format learned at the workshop is the goal of the training. A hands-on Oral Inductive Bible Storytelling workshop helps anybody attending to develop these skills so that they leave a workshop they are equipped to implement the method immediately.

Jesus ended His earthly ministry with the powerful statement that we commonly refer to as the Great Commission. Jesus said to them. “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore, go and make disciples of all nation, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. And teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always…to the very end of the age.” – Matthew 28: 17-20. If our goal is to clearly communicate Biblical truths in developed nations, as well as to do all we can to reach both the lost in the 10/40 window and the Unreached People Groups of the world, a radical change must take place in the way we present our information.

Come and learn a different way of teaching (which is more in line with how Jesus taught) in order to help people encounter God in a new life changing way. This one day workshop will add depth to your teaching skills as well as give you confidence in leading a storytelling small group.
