An hour and a half. Since our Sunday school is 45 minutes, I have divided up each lesson into 2 lessons. One week we watch the video, and the other week we talk about the homework, our experiences with the evangelism, and anything else in the workbook (sometimes there are skits, etc.). This is an awesome course! Our church is so excited to use the method taught in "The Way of the Master" to evangelise.

Just do it, you gotta do it and see how it flies. Be ready with other materials if you have more study then way of the master...and if you run over then you pick it up next week. Don't make this harder on yourself then you need it to be

The video sessions vary from 30 to 50 minutes, but average 35 minutes in length. To allow adequate time for all the suggested activities, the recommended time for each weekly session is approximately an hour and a half. (In our groups we typically spend 1.5 - 2 hours to fully digest each week's content.)
To use it in a one-hour time frame, you can view the video on the 1st week and then go through the Study Guide activities on the 2nd week.

I just started the training using the Way of the Master DVDs and I believe it will take approximately 2 hours for each training session. you can do it in less time; however, you will miss out and have to delete some of the material and it is all important. I pray this helps you.

There are 4 DVDs, and there are two lessons on each DVD. The time consumed by each lesson will range from as little as 30 minutes, to as much as 38 minutes. As a suggestion, you could simply show one lesson, and still have plenty of time left for discussion during a one hour class. If you used this approach, your church could finish all 8 lessons by showing one lesson every Sunday morning during Sunday School, for example. In this example, you would complete the course in only two months.

The publisher recommends reserving about 90 minutes for each session. Videos segments alone range from 30 to 50 minutes each.

I think it would be an excellent course for a youth group. Both Ray and Kirk show how to present the gospel in a biblical way that is easy to understand. They stress the seriousness of our responsibility to share our faith and yet the lessons are fun and would be a good way for anyone to practice and get better at sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Perfect. When you give youth the tools they need they will go share the Gospel much better than adults. Our teens loved the tracts so be sure and go the Way of the Master site and order some extra ones.

Absolutely! The Basic Training Course is ideally suited for young people, and because they are more relational, and more fearless, than adults they are often more enthusiastic about putting it into practice. I've personally led classes that included teens and even preteens with great success.

Many people have reported exciting results when using the BTC with youth:

“It was amazing to see the transformation in the hearts and lives of our teenagers. At the beginning of the course only a couple of teens witnessed regularly. Last week, 90% of our class witnessed to someone. As a student pastor for over eight years, I’ve never seen young people or adult leaders evangelize like this before!” —J. R., CA

"I am the Association Youth Minister for over 30 churches and the Associate Pastor for a small church. I started at-home Bible studies for teens grades 7th-12th using the DVDs. Their desire to share the gospel just exploded! They now knew how to talk to someone about salvation in a way that makes perfect sense. In all my church history I have never seen a more powerful tool that simply shows people how to witness the way Jesus did." —J. M., IL

Question

does each student have to buy a study guide?

Just wondering if this kit is all we need, or if everyone needs to buy a study guide? Our church will buy the kit, but I don't like asking people to pay for their own books if they want to come to the group. Seems like I never get reimbursed from most of them anyway. :(

Yes, the WOTM Basic Training Course is designed so that each participant will need their own Study Guide (WW591013) as well as a Quick Reference Card (WW91034).

The Study Guide contains numerous parts for each lesson, including Bible study and homework assignments each week, along with additional teaching material and encouragement. Participants will miss a lot of the content if they don't have their own SG for reference.

The Quick Reference Card (10-pack) contains the witnessing presentation in a nutshell, and is used repeatedly throughout the course. Participants need to have their own to memorize and help them as they witness.

When we lead groups, we usually ask participants to pay $7-10 each (which includes some additional tracts they will need). Experience has shown that people are more willing to commit to something if they've paid at least a small cost for it. This course enables them to embark on a lifetime of reaching the lost, so hopefully they'll find it worth a few dollars. We or our church will often cover the cost for those who can't afford it. May God bless your group!
