Help Me Teach the Bible: Jen Wilkin on How to Organize and Orchestrate a Bible Study

Nancy Guthrie | January 12, 2017

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.
