Released recently, Zoom Breakout Rooms are a great new feature to help you and your church have bible studies or group meetings in a more in-depth way. It allows the host of the meeting to break participants in up to 50 smaller sessions within the 1 meeting. The host and co-host of the meeting can then switch between the different rooms.
Everyone can join the main Zoom meeting to start the discussion then you’ll have the ability to break them into smaller groups for a more intimate discussion about what you’re learning.
The breakout sessions are also a wonderful way to get to know what others may need during this time. During these smaller meetings, you can really get to know what’s going on in each other’s life. Especially if it’s information that they don’t want to share with the whole group. For example, lots of people may have lost their job and may need more than just prayers. These smaller groups let us know exactly how we can help others in their time of need.
Check out how to enable and use the feature here.
At the beginning of the year no one would have thought that we wouldn’t be able to meet in person now. This is a new season for all of us, and digital discipleship isn’t going away any time soon. We can make the most of it by using this feature and still love our neighbors well.
Matthew 22: 37-40 says, “Jesus replied: Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
