Apologies if this has been asked previously (I searched and came up empty), but my son is looking to lead a Bible study group over the summer (middle school children) and expressed interest in using FaithLife.  I'm coming up empty with articles/blogs/tutorials to help get him started on how to accomplish something like that with the software/site.  Obviously, he can create a reading plan and there is discussion functionality built-in.  Is there additional functionality in FaithLife that would facilitate such a group study, esp. for kids that are tech-aware?

The first thing that comes to mind is using handouts of the lesson.

I use Logos/Faithlife  in preparing for the bible study I teach on Sunday. And the way I do it is I gather some questions about the text and the use the software to research answers. I am more of a question/answer type teacher, but I find if I don't have answers myself I hear quite a few crickets chirping.

Thankful for Philippians precept Bible study using Faithlife earlier this year => https://faithlife.com/precept-philippians-study/activity that has News and Discussions, which included some video links.

Thankful for free resource last year => Philippians: How to Have Joy that was used in Bible study.

Keep Smiling Smile

Your question can be answered in several ways! There's a lot it could mean.  I think a good leading question to help the forum understand how to help you would be is you could answer:

  • Is he looking to use Logos during the discussion to show them how and what it is he is reading/studying? (Like guiding the study through the program on a screen?)
  • Are you looking to use Faithlife Groups as a social media component to post questions, discussions, or inform the Middle Schoolers about the group times and activities?
  • Are you asking if the kids can download FL mobile apps to follow along?
  • Are you looking to see what Tools or Guides would be most helpful in creating or presenting a study? (Like how James mentioned using Handouts for the kids.)
  • OR are you asking what books and resources would be helpful to purchase in preparing a Middle School bible study?

Hope that makes sense!  It would help frame the discussion to give you the right info you need, and not what you don't.  

FWIW, I am a youth pastor and love that fact that your son is reaching out to Middle Schoolers! Yes
