We did this as a summer study at our church. The products included made this a breeze to lead. The ASK conversation cards were terrific. Thought-provoking homework as well. I would definitely recommend this!
Very Happy with the content of the book, well explained in how to run the study. Also loved the ASK questions provided. She has a great way of hitting home with powerful points. Would recommend this study to all ages.
Love, love, love this study. I led this study after leading another study be Jennie Allen called Stuck. I highly recommend both studies! This study is so well done in every way. The study guide (homework) is brilliant. It is deep and enriching without being laborious. The videos are superb in that they are brief yet rich in content. The discussion cards are a great accessory to the study. We rarely got to them as our conversations were quickly inspired by the study guide and video. The cards are wonderful conversation starters if you need them. I was so pleased with how easy it was to lead this study as the resources were so well done. I feel that, as a leader, a well executed study frees me up to go along on the adventure with my ladies, and I LOVE that! This study is deep, convicting, inspiring, Biblically sound, and totally doable, even for a busy lady!
Our bible study group has begun Chase by Jennie Allen. Some of the group realizes they are still running away while God is chasing them. While others have been overturned in their Spirit so desperately reaching/running to God, and we are only in our 2nd week of study! Our favorite part is the discussion cards and writing the letters to God. It is here when we share our souls that God meets us with an encompassing love that we feel so deep it washes all of our troubles away. He lets us chose whether we Chase Him or He Chases us with sweet pursuing love.
What I love about this product is it reaches out to different learners. Through the Study Guide participants can read/experience the material personally in the stories. In the See Videos, participants are gathered to a "starting" place for conversations to begin or continue. In the Ask Conversation Cards, they help prompt each person to share their experiences/opinions/beliefs. And the Leader's guide prepares the leader and helps each session move along easily even for the in-experienced small group leader.
The study asks you, "What are you chasing?" So often, we find ourselves caught up in the midst of EVERYTHING that is in our lives. Career, family, relationships, material possessions, meeting the expectations of others. Chase helped bring me back to the place I needed to be. Being more like David and chasing after God's heart.
So would I recommend Chase? Absolutely recommend this study. The workbook provides many thought provoking questions. That will help lead you to where you ought to be.
