Small-Group Leader Must Know How to Maintain Order During Bible Study

Keep the Bible Study moving and alive. Whoever has been given responsibility for a particular part of the meeting must be enthusiastic about his part or the meeting will falter and be of no benefit. People will be bored (If you have genuinely try your best and be enthusiastic about it and some people are still bored, then it’s their problem not yours).

Note: Delegate as much responsibility as you can to others, but remember that you are still responsible for the order and the spiritual health of what happens in a Bible Study.

If there are those who constantly interrupt, they should be gently confronted with the truth that they need to consider others as more important than themselves (see Philippians 2:3). In 1 Corinthians 14:26, Apostle Paul tells us, “What then shall we say, brothers? When you come together, everyone has hymn, or a word of instruction, a revelation, a tongue or an interpretation. All of these must be done for the strengthening of the church.”

If you feel that your study are getting out of hand because one person monopolizes the time, you may need to encourage that person who is overly verbal to allow others time to share. Ask him or her to stick to a time limit. If, however, someone takes the study off the topic, you can tactfully say that you will be happy to talk privately about it after the study. This way you are honouring him or her as a person, and you can keep the meeting from becoming boring for the rest of the people.
