What are study plans and how to use them? These study plans are designed to help facilitate small group discussions or for you as an individual. The goal is to first choose your pace of reading GO & TELL. Let’s say you or your small group wants to go through the book in 8 sessions. Each session could be a week. Below, go to the “8 SESSIONS” study guide. Each week, you will read the corresponding chapters from the 8 Session Study Guide and go through the questions in the GO & TELL Companion Workbook alone.
When you gather as a small group, together you will start off by watching the corresponding videos in the video section of the website. (Note: If you are going through the sessions alone and not part of a small group, you can watch the video after reading each chapter.) After watching the video, discuss your completed questions in the Companion Workbook together that corresponds with the chapter video. Pray for the Holy Spirit to give you wisdom, passion and courage to share the Good News to those in your Cosmos. Watch as God uses you to impact eternity!

Use this study guide if you have an intensive small group with few sessions/weeks but still want to read through the book.

Read all the chapters if possible.
