How to get new students in my class
About two months before your class begins, start to generate interest for your study. Determine the schedule for your class and begin to talk to those who you think would be interested. We encourage you to post your class on the Precept website, so that your information will be available for people in your area that are searching for a class to join.
The most important and effective way to draw students is prayer! Ask the Lord to bring the ones He desires to study with you. You can always start small with two or three people who want to study the Bible. Begin with them and trust the Lord to increase the number of students as He wills.

Selecting the right study for your group
