Year Three: Art of Bible Facilitation

Year Three

CBI Process
“Provides insight into a variety of communities through a combination of theory, method, and practice.”

Art of Bible Facilitation (ABF) is the third year of the Catholic Bible Institute’s certification process. In it we introduce the candidates to the art of bible facilitation that explores the feel for improvisation.

In communion with the New Directory for Catechesis ABF provides insight into a variety of communities through a combination of theory, method, and practice.

Meeting monthly via Zoom we explore the dynamics of facilitating Bible with Adults, Young Adults, Youth, Parents, and Senior Citizens. Who are these groups? What do they need?

We also practice what we have learned. This is where the art comes in.

There are monthly reading and writing assignments that differ from the first two years of CBI.

After several months of instruction and practice teams of two are sent out on their facilitation mission to lead a Bible Study or Bible Faith Sharing group. The location, demographic, form is up to the team. We will cover all of this over the course of the year.

Each team will have a mentor to help guide them through the process from beginning to end.

See the schedule of dates and topics below. Speaker information will be updated as it becomes available. Topics may shift.

Registration begins at 10am Pacific Time on Opening Day of the Religious Education Congress, February 16, 2024!
