Walking with God

Our deepest need is to live in conversation with God. To hear his voice. To follow him intimately. This is the most life-changing habit that we can adopt, because it brings us back to the source of life. Yet most Christians have never been taught how to have a conversation with the Creator.

In this revised and updated study guide, bestselling author John Eldredge dives deeper into his personal journals to tell his stories about walking and talking with the Lord. By putting words to the things God has shown him through some amazing experiences, he will help you shed light on the miraculous truths that God is showing you right now. Packed with questions, stories, and discussion topics, this study guide features:

  • Journaling Prompts: Questions to help you tell your own story of walking with God
  • Relevant Passages: Scriptures to study and memorize to help you along the way
  • Clarity Readings: Short notes to solidify certain key points in your mind
  • Leader’s Guide: A new leader’s guide to help you guide groups through the material

Defending Your Faith (being alternated with the “Foundations” series by Ken Ham – Answers in Genesis)

In Defending Your Faith: An Overview of Classical Apologetics with R.C. Sproul, Dr. Sproul surveys the history of apologetics and demonstrates that reason and science are your allies in defending the existence of God and the historical truth claims of Jesus Christ. He affirms four logical premises that are necessary for all reasonable discourse, and teaches you how to defend your faith in a faithless world. Furthermore, he points out that there are many levels on which to defend your faith, and shows how apologetics brings comfort and confidence to Christians of all ages.

 

 

 


The Foundations DVD series reflects Ken Ham’s lifework in affirming the authority of God’s Word. These posters make it easy to let others know when and where they can be a participant, challenged and equipped to stand on the Word of God and defend it with confidence and boldness!

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

Multiply (Francis Chan)

Jesus gave his followers a command: “Follow me.” And a promise: “And I will equip you to find others to follow me.” We were made to make disciples.

Designed for use in discipleship relationships and other focused settings, Multiply will equip you to carry out Jesus’s ministry. Each of the twenty-four sessions in the book corresponds with an online video at www.multiplymovement.com, where New York Times bestselling author David Platt joins Francis in guiding you through each part of Multiply.

One plus one plus one. Every copy of Multiply is designed to do what Jesus did: make disciples who make disciples who make disciples…. Until the world knows the truth of Jesus Christ.

 

 


Forgotten God” (Francis Chan)

In this dynamic companion to the book Forgotten God, breakthrough author Francis Chan reminds us of the true source of the church’s power-the Holy Spirit.  Chan contends that we’ve ignored the Spirit for far too long, and that without Him, we operate in our own strength, only accomplishing human-sized results.

This seven-session video resource offers a compelling invitation to understand, embrace, and follow the Holy Spirit’s direction in our lives.  It is designed to initiate and facilitate discussion, interaction and practical application of the message of Forgotten God.
