Register participants for your study, and ensure that everyone has their study materials.

Recruit small group facilitators to oversee the small group discussions. Make sure you have enough small group facilitators to accommodate groups of 8-12.

Who can facilitate a small group discussion?

A small-group facilitator does not lead the discussion; he or she simply makes it possible. Facilitators do not need to be catechists, theologians, or counselors. They just need to be dedicated and humble, good listeners who are able to keep the discussion on track and on time.
