In this episode of Help Me Teach the Bible, I sat down with Jen Wilkin to talk about organizing a Bible study. Wilkin is a minister in the Institute at The Village Church in Flower Mound, Texas, where she oversees curriculum and teaches women’s classes. She is the author of Women of the Word: How to Study the Bible with Both Our Hearts and Our Minds and None Like Him: 10 Ways God Is Different from Us (and Why That’s a Good Thing). She has also published group studies on 1 Peter on the Sermon on the Mount.

In this conversation, Wilkin explains how her passion and ability to teach developed and how significant it is to have a pastor affirm and encourage teaching gifts. Having led a large parachurch Bible study for women and now overseeing the women’s Bible study at her own church, Wilkin offers valuable advice for organizing and orchestrating a Bible study program. In particular, Wilkin says studies should provide structure, accountability, and predictability.

You’re not alone. Since the church’s beginnings, Christians have often felt ostracized. And the Bible offers great encouragement for how to live with hope.
