Leading Made Easy
With key words such as “Ask,” “Say,” “Read,” “Distribute,” etc., employed throughout all the session scripts, leaders are never left wondering or worrying about what to say or do. First-time leaders may choose to follow the instructions to the letter, while more experienced leaders might decide to be a bit more flexible with how they use the script. Regardless of the experience level of your leaders, leading any of the three phases is simple and stress-free.
