Each Study Guide lesson provides details about the Pivotal Player’s life and contributions to the culture. In addition, you'll find “Questions for Understanding" that support the teaching in the video and reference Scripture verses and sections from the Catechism of the Catholic Church. You'll also find several “Questions for Application" in each lesson to help you connect the material to your own life and experience.

For group study, you'll find a plan to present the program in 13 sessions, each 90 minutes long. The first session covers a general orientation, followed by two sessions on each Pivotal PlayerEach session includes video viewing (25-30 minutes) and small group discussion of the Study Guide questions (60 minutes).

 The Leader’s Kit provides everything you need to host the Pivotal Players Study Program. We recommend that each parish or group purchase one Leader’s Kit to get started and then a separate Leader’s Guide for each small group facilitator. In addition, each participant in the group needs their own Study Guide, which can be purchased in bulk with a volume discount before your program begins.

Leaders can also register for a free training webinar which teaches the best ways to run an effective Pivotal Players study group.
