Small Groups

YBL Huntsville offers 3 types of Bible study opportunities that are geared to meet men where they are in their spiritual journey. Each study seeks to help men take the next step in their spiritual journey of becoming more like Jesus.

YBL’s Three Bible Study Opportunities:

1. Investigative Study

This introductory study normally takes about 4 weeks to complete and usually involves two people. This study is for those who want to know how to begin to walk with God. Topics covered deal with the validity of the Bible, finding purpose for our lives and how to begin a relationship with God. Meeting times and location are flexible depending on participant’s schedule.

2. Concentrating on the Majors (COM)

The COM is a 16-week study, and is for those who want to learn or review a basic introduction to the Bible and its most essential truths. Vital Christian principles are explained in this study and topics covered range from how to be sure of your salvation, to experiencing God’s forgiveness, to how to grow in your relationship with God. The COM study meets weekly during the breakfast, lunch or after work hours. Meeting are held at the local YBL office, a local restaurant or office building. There are normally 8 -10 men involved. The format of the group is very discussion oriented which affords participants the opportunity of building friendships and of discussing any personal issues that might be pertinent. The study is centered around essential truths of the bible that every Christian needs to grasp. Going through the COM will help you to gain a richer understanding of the Christian life, and allow you to make some meaningful friendships. At the end of this study, participants are given the option of moving into a Discipleship Group.

3. Discipleship Group

The discipleship/accountability group is for those who have been through the COM study or who have sufficient understanding of the basics of a relationship with Jesus. This is a group of 4-8 men that meet weekly for Bible study, encouragement, prayer and mutual accountability. A major focus of this group is the relationships that are developed over time among participants. An atmosphere of openness is encouraged. The purpose of this group is to establish the men in their faith in God and to encourage men to become spiritual leaders in their homes, churches and businesses. This study will be centered on a study of a book of the Bible or a topical study that deals with subjects intended to help men grow as spiritual leaders. These groups meet weekly over breakfast, lunch or after work in different locations around the city.
