Discovery Bible Study Guide

The Discovery Bible Study Guides provided below include a full meeting guide with section instructions that include a full outline.

We have provided multiple versions of the guides we have used in the field. One version for those who are disciples and another for those who are discovering God before becoming a disciple.
