Small Group Leader Training

Meet Maggie Snyder
Training Coordinator

With a law degree from Cornell University, you might expect to find Maggie Snyder holding forth before a court of law. But Maggie, who rests in the fact that Jesus fulfills the perfect law of God, now spends her time pointing people to him. As a seeJesus trainer, Maggie is passionate about leading people deeper into the life of Jesus and seeing them excited and challenged as they learn more about Him and about themselves. 

Maggie, who has led or helped to lead women’s Bible studies for over twenty years, views each seeJesus seminar as an opportunity to worship alongside fellow believers. She’s excited to be part of what God is doing through seeJesus to get the words of life and light into people around the globe. Maggie and her husband, Mike, have three grown children and five grandchildren and have recently moved to the Philadelphia area from northern Virginia. 

How does seeJesus help small group leaders? The most helpful thing seeJesus does is host See Jesus Workshops to train leaders in how to lead our material.

Describe the See Jesus Workshop experience. It is like sitting at Jesus' feet for five hours! Each study is centered on rediscovering the person of Jesus and the gospel. People really do see Jesus and are amazed.

What do people get out of it? Love for Jesus expands; it is worship! People want to pass it on, and the training helps to encourage and empower them.

Training for Small Group Leaders

Small group Bible study should be full of “aha” moments leading to worship, but that’s not how most people describe their small group experience. seeJesus's Interactive Bible Studies are designed to change that through questions that help participants discover what the text is teaching, and background material that helps leaders provide enrichment along the way. While anyone can lead a seeJesus study, we do offer training to help small group leaders strengthen their skills. Our hope is that these studies will lead groups through many “aha” moments and into worship.

Endorsements

"You can’t prepare and conduct one of these studies without being deeply moved because of the depth of the material.  As I have looked upon Jesus, learned to love him more, and tried to become like him, I’ve been moved as much or more than the people in my group."

Steve Wilson, Small Group Leader

"I love this material because it is like Jesus; it is upside-down. It values the participant. That is especially unique and just written into the material."

Gretchen Sweet, Small Group Leader

"I love the detail in the stories and how you can study a story that you’ve known since you were a small child and get something new out of it every time.  You come away from the story feeling like you’re dealing with real people who struggle just like you do."

Debbie Chadler, Small Group Leader
