Team up with God for the project of your life. Right now, God is ready to transform your life. But He wants your partnership. The strength and guidance for transformation come from Him---but the 'green light' can only come from you. Transformation will help you recognize and cooperate with God's transforming influence in your life. Each session focuses on a critical area He has targeted for change and growth. You'll learn proven ways of responding to God's guidance that will keep you growing closer to Him. You'll also discover an inspiring picture of what awaits you as a fully devoted follower---membership in a joyous, supportive community of believers, infused with God's love. Interactions---a powerful and challenging tool for building deep relationships between you and your group members, and you and God. Interactions is far more than another group Bible study. It's a cutting-edge series designed to help small group participants develop into fully devoted followers of Christ.
