We invite you to use Harmony Bible with your small group. Our resources are free, and training is affordable for those who would like to learn how to begin a disciple-making small group ministry. Even church planters will find the series helpful as they begin their new ministry in their community.
Harmony Bible groups use a strategic approach to mature and equip disciple-making disciples. By studying the Harmony of the Gospels and reflecting on both Old and New Testament passages peoples’ faith is strengthened and churches experience greater vitality. While the gain a solid understanding of the progression of Jesus’ ministry, their own faith grows through the chronological journey through the Harmony of the Gospels. As they become stronger Christians they are better equipped to engage in ministry according to their own vocation.
The entire study takes a little more than four years to complete, when going at a pace that is suitable for deeper learning and small group dialogue. If you think that’s a long time to be in one series then we’d encourage you to consider the path of Nathaniel, Phillip and the earliest of disciples who journeyed with Jesus for nearly three-and-a-half years. Staying with the study that long will allow your group members to focus on knowing Jesus, and becoming disciple-making disciples not just filling their head with knowledge or addressing another topic in the next 7-week series. Members will also save money because all our weekly study resources are free.
Harmony Bible is appropriate for multi-generational groups, and with the aid of Google Translation our materials are ideal for multilingual and multicultural ministry. Just as Jesus met people in all walks of life your church members from any of the five phases of discipleship will be transformed as they continue through this study. As group members grow in their faith your church will experience even greater vitality.
Before you begin, we recommend that you get the blessing of your church pastor. They might even like to host a training session for your church and others in the region.
