Select one or two individuals of the same sex to meet with weekly. New people may join, but the addition of a fourth person means the HTG should become two groups.
Agree upon a location (home, restaurant etc.) and time to meet weekly for about an hour.
Agree upon Bible readings. Use either a yearly bible reading plan or agree on how many chapters of the Bible you’re going to read that week (usually not less than 5 chapters). If any member has not read the passages, the group will read the same passage the next week.
Everyone answers the questions and the facilitator (rotates weekly) asks them.
Pray for one another when you meet as well as during the week.
