ü  Study Guide – 4 copy ü  DVD – 1 copy All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you. A cunning, devilish enemy seeks to wreak havoc on everything that matters to you―your emotions, mind, family, and future. But his reign stops right here, right now with you. The enemy always miserably fails when he meets a woman dressed for the occasion—a woman who is armed and dangerous. This is more than just a biblical description of the believer’s inventory. It is an action plan for putting on your armor and developing a personalized strategy to secure victory against the enemy. ü  Book, The Armor of God – 1 copy ü  DVD Set – 1 copy

B The Bait of Satan exposes one of the most deceptive snares Satan uses to get believers out of God’s will – offense. This trap restrains countless Christians, severs relationships, and widens the gulfs between us. Jesus said, “It is impossible that no offenses should come.” (Luke 17:1). Although you will encounter offense, you can choose how you will react. ü  Book, The Bait of Satan – 1 copy ü  Interactive Guide – 1 copy ü  DVD – 1 copy In this four-session video-based study, Lucado reveals his struggles with prayer and how he discovered it is not a privilege for the pious or the art of a chosen few but a simple tool given to everyone to have a conversation with God.

  • Deepening Life Together
    • Paul – The apostle Paul did more than any other person in the ancient world to assure that Christianity became a cross-cultural movement rather than an obscure Jewish sect. His writings make up much of the New Testament. How did Jesus take a young hothead who persecuted Christians and turn him into the first evangelist to the Gentiles? What can we learn from the way Paul responded to God’s call?
ü  DVD – 1 ü  Book – 1
  • Ephesians – Can we trust God with everything in our lives? What does Christ’s sacrifice mean for our relationships? Will we ever be holy? Each 10-15-minute session guides you deeper into the Scriptures, with provocative insights from renowned scholars.
ü  DVD – 1 ü  Book – 2
  • Acts – Through the bold witness of the first Christians, the gospel spread throughout the world. God used ordinary men and women to do the extraordinary. What is God calling you to do for Him? How does the community of believers today effectively act as God’s hands and feet in a hurting world?
ü  DVD – 1 ü  Book – 1
  • Praying God’s Way – If God knows our thoughts, why should we pray? What is the proper way to pray? Will God answer all of our prayers? What if it doesn’t seem like He’s listening?
ü  DVD – 1 ü  Book – 1
  • Promises of God – The most important promise God ever made was that He would restore the broken relationship between Himself and those who bear His image. What happened in the garden, and what were the long-term effects on God’s creation? How does God’s sweeping plan of redemption affect our lives? How are we called to respond to God’s promise in our communities?
ü  DVD – 1 ü  Book – 1
  • John – John’s account of Jesus’ life and ministry differs in substance and style from the other Gospels. His unique perspective challenges us to re-examine our beliefs about the Lord. Why did Jesus perform miracles, and what did they mean? How might our traditions hinder a true understanding of who Jesus really is? How can we follow Christ’s example of selfless love in our families, churches, and communities?
ü  DVD – 1 ü  Book – 1
  • Romans – Paul boldly told believers, “Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” But how does that work on the day-to-day level? What does the Christian life look like when it is lived out both individually and in communities of faith? How can we be in the world but not of the world?
ü  DVD – 1 ü  Book – 1
  • Revelation – If you could use only one word to describe the book of Revelation, what would you choose? Scary? Weird? What about hopeful? It may seem odd, but John’s revelation was supposed to bring hope to Christians living in the dark times of Roman persecution. So, what are John’s strange visions all about – and what on earth do they have to do with modern-day believers? What should we expect when Jesus returns? And what does God promise to those who persevere?
ü  DVD – 1 ü  Book – 1 E This unique, DVD-driven study brings the passion and resurrection of Jesus to life through dramatic storytelling and challenging teaching in a highly cinematic style. ü  Participant’s Guide – 1 copy The heart of Christianity is not a ritual or a structure but a Person – Jesus Christ. But even as His followers, our vision of Jesus can get muddied by human-made theories of who He was.

These six sessions lay the foundation for radical discipleship as our hearts are once again captured by who He is. ü  Participant’s Guide – 1 copy ü  DVD – 1 copy     F Family…the source of your highest joys and most profound disappointments.

  • Hole in our Gospel, The – Six-week quest based on the book by Richard Stearns (2010 Christian Book of the Year)
This radical, eye-opening series challenges churches to involve their members in 42 days of action-oriented awareness and one soul-searching question on poverty and injustice from World Vision U.S. President Richard Stearns, “What does God expect of us?” This is a story of how a CEO faced his struggle to obey God, whatever the cost, and his passionate call for Christians to change the world by actively living out their faith, believing that the “good news” is more than a private transaction between God and us. The series includes fast-paced and hard-hitting documentary DVD “shorts” and real-life pack-a-punch stories and insights on poverty and injustice―probing and pondering the 2,000 verses in the Bible that address poverty and injustice. ü  Small-Group Discussion Guide ü  Small-Group DVD ü  42-day Journal ü  Daily Prayer Guide ü  Companion SixWeekQuest.com Website – daily devotional and resources ü  Free downloadable small group hosting tips   I What’s weighing on you? Has someone or something left you feeling rejected, guilty, or broken? Jesus met many broken people stuck in poverty, religion, sickness, sin, and even death. But Jesus saw through their circumstances and fulfilled their deepest needs. It was never too late. In this 28-day study journal, you’ll embark on a journey through Jesus’ life and ministry that will lead you to recall your past wounds, reorient your present identity, and reimagine your future. It contains Scripture, reflection questions, and guided lessons that can stand alone as a personal study, or act as a participant’s guide for the I Can Only Imagine Video Series. Surrounded by brokenness, it’s hard to imagine a loving father, complete forgiveness, and eternal restoration. But when you learn to see yourself through God’s eyes, you will finally find rest in His approval, purpose, and eternal hope. Reveal the heart of God who loves you more than you can imagine. ü  Journal – 5 copies ü  DVD Set – 1 copy This course helps your group answer Christ’s call to greater faith, power-filled deeds, and a new way of knowing Him.

This companion to Zacharias’ award-winning book is a stimulating and provocative defense of the Christian message’s uniqueness. ü  Facilitator’s Guide – 1 copy ü  DVD – 1 copy Award-winning book on the teachings, person, and life of Jesus Christ.; a ground-breaking, disturbing, and exhilarating look at the Jesus described in the Gospels. Yancey writes: “The Jesus I got to know in writing this book is very different from the Jesus I learned about in Sunday school.
