LEAD carries two full sets of programs for adults: the standard format carried over from Sabbath School Leadership, plus "A.M. Buzz," prepared for young adults, age 18-35, and the postmodern mindset and those who work closely with them.
There are sections that provide training for Sabbath school coordinators, sections on church history, exegesis and hermeneutics, a "Hands On" section to address the tactile-kinesthetic learning mode, and Bible study aids for the mentally challenged.
