Max Lucado's Before Amen is a 4-session DVD Study for anyone desiring an improved prayer life. In the DVD sessions, he reveals his struggles with prayer and his discovery that having a conversation with God is for everyone, not just for the pious few. Through the use of a simple, easy-to-remember, pocket-sized prayer that he distilled from the prayers in the Bible, he shows us how everyone can build a prayer life that is stronger, better and deeper. Connecting with Him each day can mean all the difference in your life and how you experience God.

The study guide includes leader helps, discussion questions, conversation starters, and between-session activities to enhance your understanding and application of Max's teaching.

Sometimes we all need to be shown what to do, and whom we follow often says as much about us as about the leader. The people in The Followers all look to Jesus to know what to do with their lives.

The Followers included in this study are: Mary, Mary Magdalene, Stephen, Barnabas, Luke, and Paul. Included in the Kit is a 32-page discussion guide for leaders, 6 videos (1 for each story), 6 audio segments (1 for each story; 6-10 minutes each), and a promo video.

What is it that you long for? Dream about? Hunger after? We all desire more than just the endurance of our daily routines. But often we feel limited and stuck - like we're merely existing instead of living. That's not the way it was meant to be. God intends the humanity in each of us to be deeply experienced, lavishly enjoyed, and exuberantly celebrated. In fact this is what the gospel is all about.

In Life with a Capital L Matt Heard escorts us on a journey of discovery: that Jesus didn’t come to save us from our humanity - Christ instead yearns to restore it to what God originally intended. He then explores ten key areas where everyday life can become extraordinary Life. Life with a Capital L is the Life you are longing for. Now.

    Helping Without Hurting: Short Term Missions is aimed at the preparation and debriefing of short-term missionaries.

    While every book of the Bible will contribute something to our understanding of work, Genesis proves to be the fountain from which the Bible's theology of work flows.
    This Bible study addresses themes such as:

    • God's creation and the ongoing participation he planned for us.
    • The boundaries God set for us in which to work.
    • The sovereign justice and mercy of God in working to redeem the world, setting new boundaries and opportunities for us to participate with him.
    Great for group or individual use, at home or at work on your lunch break, this particular study delves into what the story of Creation has to say about faith and work.

    James is jam-packed with wisdom for Christians who want to truly apply their faith to everyday life. James and Work takes its readers through the whole letter, with a particular focus on this question: How might we apply the wisdom of Scripture to the way we behave in the modern marketplace?

    The study addresses questions such as:

    • What does it really mean to trust God with our work?
    • What should businesses look like when Christians turn their faith to action?
    • What does the Bible say about the way we treat our workmates, our customers, and our investors?
    • What does the Bible say about business planning, self-promotion, water-cooler gossip, and the wages we pay employees?

    Twenty-four short studies, grouped into eight weeks or chapters, are perfectly suited to a workplace lunch-hour study group, a church group of workers interested in how to live out their faith from Monday to Friday, or as a personal pre-work devotion.

    Paul's letter to the Philippians provides a different sort of answer to the question of where we find strength to do our work. The apostle says that our work is not the result of our own efforts, but of God's work in - and through - us.

Whether considering the apostle's own work or hearing his challenges in his letter, this is an opportunity to understand how Christ's character affects his followers in the contemporary workplace.

Sharing his deeply personal story of demonic bondage, torment and ultimate deliverance, pastor and bestselling author Kris Vallotton turns the idea of spiritual warfare as we know it on its head. He reveals the diabolical lies and strategies of the enemy - attacks and traps so subtle and deceptive that we may find our souls and hearts imprisoned without even knowing it.

We don’t “kind of” love people—we love them the way Jesus loves us. We impersonate his every move. If imitation is the greatest form of flattery, Jesus should be flattered by the actions of his Church. This DVD is designed for use with the Jesus Prom Study Guide (sold separately).
