Asking Good Questions
Leading a small group can be intimidating, especially if you feel like you don’t know how to encourage meaningful discussions. In this session, Kevin Baker, Small Groups Pastor at Ada Bible Church near Grand Rapids, MI, takes us through a step-by-step process to asking great questions that will get your group talking on a deeper level.
Hayley Miller, from Word of Life Fellowship, has several great ideas for asking good questions. We often ask questions that only return "churchy" answers, or we offer solutions to an answer so quickly that we fail to understand the real underlying problem. Listening well and asking probing questions will help us avoid both of these pitfalls.
