Step 1

Facilitator Coaching Teachers

Coach (20 minutes)

A Facilitator's job is to “facilitate” an environment of encountering God. They are trying to help a group learn to teach, talk to God, pray, and serve one another. Also, they are to make sure the teaching does not go longer than 20 minutes.


The Facilitator’s job is to get everyone signed up ahead of time. So that everyone can work on their assignment ahead of time.

Holy Clubs Teacher

Encourage the teachers to get training by watching the next video “Becoming a Holy Clubs Teacher”, and reading the notes provided.


Encourage them to prepare ahead of time. Most people will do a better job if they actually prepare ahead of time.


Have your teachers write down any questions that they have beforehand and reach out to you.


Let them know that they can do this. God has called ordinary people to do extraordinary things.

Testimony of and Amazing mom!!

Step 2



It is important to prepare ahead of time. This allows the truths you will be teaching to sink into your heart and become real, and it gives you the confidence you need to reach out to those you disciple. For example: Read through the notes, look up the bible verses, take notes, and jot down any questions that you may have. Ask your group facilitator or someone else if you have any questions. Remember, God wants you to be faithful with the little things so that He can give you more (Matt. 25:23).

Pray before:

I like to pray before I teach. Firstly, I #talk2God about the topic. This always includes asking for revelation on the content. And if you receive anything, write it down! Secondly, I ask God to touch the people in the meeting. If possible, I ask for each of them (by name) days before the group meets.

Show passion, but don’t fake it:

If the content has impacted you, and you've grown passionate about it, don't hide that — show your passion! Speak with excitement! If you don't feel passionate, that's okay. We just don't want you to fake it. But if you have connected with the content, then sharing that excitement with others can help them connect with it too.

Don’t compare:

You are you. They are them. God made each of you unique. So feel free to reject the pressure to teach like someone else. Just be yourself!

Keep your style:

Many people are gifted in their own unique way. Take the unique personality you have and work it into the content of your presentation. Each person will teach a little differently, and that’s great!

Keep the teaching to 20 minutes:

You will only have 20 minutes to go through a lot of content. And that is all right, because the group can go over anything that you miss later. I personally like to break the content down into 4 sets of 5 minutes each (if possible, go over things ahead of time, timing yourself to practice finishing in 20 minutes).

Try to make eye contact with people:

Try looking at individuals rather than scanning the group. Since you will be with the group in a circle, rather than at the front of a room, you won’t have a board or slide projection to reference — so you never need to look behind you. You may be using a laptop, tablet, or a sheet of paper, so be sure to just glance down at it briefly. One sure way to lose an audience is to turn your back on them, or look down the whole time. By the way, while you’re maintaining great eye contact, don’t forget to smile as well!

What to do when questions or comments arise:

When group members ask questions or give comments, you should be gracious and thank them for their input. Even if someone is being difficult, you must keep to the moral high ground and be courteous at all times (Rom. 15:1-4, Titus 3:1-2). Answer the questions that you can, but refer to the group facilitator (or even the group itself) if you don’t know. Remember, questions and comments (even negative ones) are free advice, as they help all of you to grow in your understanding of yourselves and the content.

Tell a story:

Try to tell a story about how the truth has impacted your life. You can do this in three steps –

Truth: First, emphasize the foundational truth in your own words.

Story: Second, tell a parable or story that helps illustrate the truth (maybe an example from your life, a friends life, or an illustration in the bible).


Third, explain how the truth can personally impact the others in the group.


Step 3

common pitfalls


This is someone that is not prepared. It is important to help a person know they should prepare by watching video and looking over the notes. If the person has a fear, which causes them to not prepare, then help them to overcome it by preparing.


Maybe a person has never taught before. Just encourage them to do it. Your encouragement will really help them overcome. I have had so many people thank me for allowing them to teach, because they have never had the chance before.


These people can help or hinder a group. Try to encourage them to stick to the notes in meekness and humility to create an overall learning environment for the group.


Usually this is from a lack of planning, or they may be frightened. Emphasizing over and over again about the importance of preparing ahead of time will help them overcome.


This person may know more, or they may not. Try to get them back on track so that they are respectful to others.


These people have been given a little bit of power and it may go to their head. They all of the sudden don’t need to follow the structure of the group. Help them stick to the boundaries already determined. Yes, as a Facilitator follow whatever the Holy Spirit is doing, but do not marginalize different groups of people in the group with extreme moments.


Questions are great, but try to have them save questions until the end, and or for another time.


These are teachers that want to talk about what they think is relative to today. But help them to see the importance of creating the environment for people to learn the Foundations of the Faith.


There may be a tragedy, but this is not always the issue. Create a safe environment for people to focus on the solution not the problem.


This person is always negative. Help them to see truth and talk about truth. Help them to see the good in everything, not just the negative.


They are just usually nervous. Help them to overcome. Take time to share with them and encourage them to overcome.


Step 4

Recruiting people (C.a.r.e.)

1 - Interview vs. Begging

Goal: to share your vision with confidence, while interviewing the person, instead of begging them to join your group.

Interview process:

Learn about the person. We want to grow in an eternal relationship with a person, finding their vision, strengths, needs, and future ministry desires, so that you can find out how to collaborate with them. Ultimately, you want to help them grow in the 1st commandment, so that they can live out the 2nd commandment lifestyle. (Matt. 22:36-39)

Goal: to grow in an eternal relationship with a person, finding their vision, strengths, needs, ministry, and money, so that you can find out how to collaborate with them. Show them that you actually care about them as a person.
