Individuals learn to articulate truth "on the job" as they work out the content of their faith in the context of a small faith community. When church gatherings are participatory, worship and training overlap in significant ways. One believer in the Bronx once said: "It has actually empowered me to be able to instruct people, which I never thought I would be able to do. I didn't think I'd be able to do that for twenty years."

Group discussion nurtures accountability as different voices contribute to Biblical interpretation. Participation by each person encourages on-the-job training, and specialized teaching by includes conversation and dialog. Groups learn together through mutual sharing, inductive Bible discussions, and meaningful conversations. Essentially, participatory meetings emphasize formation and encourage a built-in accountability as each person learns and grows as an active part of a community of faith.
