- Open the meeting with a leader-led prayer.
- Review the tools taught in the previous weeks. Ask someone to explain it and see if anyone had an experience applying it.
- Look at the Overview together. Read it slowly so people can have an idea of where they are in the disciple-making process.
- Read about Foundation Studies. It is essential to read the complete instructions about each week's tool.
- Model what you just read. Demonstrate the tool with the entire group. Do an abbreviated version of Foundation Study. Pick a study, ask one person to read a verse, ask another to answer, and ask another to read the notes.
- Practice what you just modeled. Divide the group into smaller units and move them into breakaway groups. Direct them to practice with each other what they just saw modeled. Have the group pick a Foundation study, and one person serves as the teacher while the rest of the group are students. Rotate the teacher position after each point of the Foundation Study.
- Review what you just practiced. Gather the group back together into one larger group and ask them two key questions; The first question is, "How did it go?" The second question is, "Will someone in the group tell us how to do the tool we just learned without looking at the book?" Ask another person to teach the other tools learned in the previous weeks. The group can help those posing as teachers.
- Encourage them to apply the tool they learned during the coming week. Remind them you’ll be asking them about it next week. Let them know everyone will make different progress on this each week.
- Offer a resource. Mission Creep, by Larry Osborne. It is not required reading and will not be discussed in the meetings.
- Watch Missional Church or The Freedom Project. It is just for reflection.
- Pray as a group. Ask group members to lead out in prayer about the meeting.
