Q Studies are a new, yet historical way to explore issues of faith and culture in the context of an action-oriented, group-learning environment. Based off the Society Room movement of the late 1600's in England-small gatherings of leaders would convene, dialogue, learn and work together to renew their culture. Q Studies are based on this rich history and designed to challenge participant's innermost beliefs and preconceived ideas about life, faith, the world and their cultural responsibility. These five-session DVD studies will guide your group to examine your beliefs, change your paradigm, and take action.
