His Story, Our Story
His Story, Our Story is an easy to faciliate nine-part small group discipleship series aimed at:
- People looking into Jesus
- People who want to know Jesus better
This resource was originally prepared for people new to church but is relevant and useful for all Christians. Additionally, it was created to cater to people from non-English speaking backgrounds and has been effective with those who cannot read.

How it works
Each session begins with a sharing exercise.
Then a Bible story is told—three times! This idea comes from Australian evangelist Sam Chan, and his award-winning book, Evangelism in a Skeptical World.
The first time, the leader, or someone who can read in a lively way, reads the story. The second time, you show pictures as the story is told. This innovation has proven surprisingly effective. People say they love it.
The third time, the group tells the story. This idea also came from Sam Chan.
Then comes discussion. The group members themselves lead the way through six questions. The questions were devised by Australian Gospel-story-telling expert, Christine Dillon. They have been used in international missions, and also in Western nations.
