1. An inductive method of teaching.
During each lesson, participants read and reflect on Scripture together. Questions in the manuals help discover what this Bible teaching means and how to put it into practice.
TLT encourages Christians to search out God's will for their lives so they will grow in both obedience and maturity, like Berean Christians of Acts 17:11 who searched the Scriptures to be sure Paul and Silas were teaching the truth.
TLT trainers learn how to teach without doing most of the talking!
2. Action Plans
Action planning teaches participants how to immediately put into practice what they learn during each lesson. Through their plans they develop a renewed sense of responsibility. They also learn to report to each other during the next lesson. They share their achievements and note the obstacles they face in their Christian service. Action planning teaches responsible and visionary Christian service!
