Awe Of God Video Study (DVD)$29.99Add to cart
What if you were told of a hidden virtue that is the key to all of life? It unlocks the purpose of your existence and attracts the presence, protection, and providence of your Creator. It is the root of all noble character, the foundation of all happiness, and provides the needed adjustments to all inharmonious circumstances you may face. To firmly embrace this virtue will lengthen your life, procure you good health, ensure success and safety, eliminate lack, and guarantee a noble legacy.
If presented with these statements, most would sneer and say no such virtue exists. Yet every promise above was written by one of the wisest men to ever live. Even more astounding, he wrote these words under the inspiration of our Creator. However, prior to his departure from this life, he fell from the bliss he scribed. He became wise in his own eyes and deemed it no longer necessary to heed the wisdom of this virtue. He lost his way and eventually fell to the depths of a bitter cynic. Life became meaningless to him.
The good news is that this man’s story doesn’t end in the depths of despondency. He eventually returned to life’s most important virtue. We don’t know how many months or even years he spent writing his dismal book, but his final chapter gives a glimpse into his recovery. He begins by writing seven times in one form or another, Remember your Creator, with his final words being: Here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the duty of all mankind (Ecclesiastes 12:13 NIV).
King Solomon, the author of these words, didn’t fully realize the value of godly fear, even though he taught it under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit! Prior to his fall, godly fear wasn’t his treasure, or his delight; it wasn’t an immovable foundation for his motives and actions. It was only after stumbling, experiencing folly, and finally recovering that he more fully grasped the magnitude of its power.
In The Awe of God, bestselling author and pastor John Bevere reveals how embracing godly fear empowers us to remain under submission to God’s truth and, in so doing, keeps us on the path of life. He explores more than forty distinct promises in Scripture that are given to those who embrace this virtue–rewards such as holiness, wisdom, eternal legacy, confidence, fearlessness, happiness, and security. And he shows how learning to approach God in this entirely new way–through holy fear–allows us to discover a deeper relationship with G

Help Is Here Video Study (DVD)$29.99Add to cart
The Holy Spirit is a mystery to many of us today. We understand the nature and character of God the Father. We have no problem comprehending Jesus as the Son. But the Holy Spirit? We tend to hem, haw, and search for words when trying to describe him and the work he does in our lives. Perhaps some of the challenge is found in the terms. We understand God as a Father. Jesus as a Son. But God as Spirit? The word itself is mystical.
In this five-session video Bible study (study guide sold separately), bestselling author Max Lucado pulls back the curtain on the third member of Trinity. He shows how Jesus promised to send the Holy Spirit to his disciples because they needed to be equipped for the work he had in store for them. As he said to them, “You shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all of Judea, and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8 NKJV). Jesus knew they needed the Holy Spirit’s power-to make good choices, keep promises, silence voices of fear, and get on with life. Jesus promised to provide this power to his followers. He still promises to provide this power today.
The Bible reveals that the Holy Spirit-far from being an impersonal force-is always close, always active, and always at work within our lives. He is our helper, teacher, empowerer, intercessor, peace-bringer, guider, anointer, convicter, and diviner giver of gifts. God has not left us vulnerable and defenseless. Rather, his vision for us includes a Companion with resilient strength. So no more walking this path alone! No more carrying weight we were not intended to bear! It’s time to enjoy the presence of the Holy Spirit and experience the life he offers. It’s time to tap into his power… and realize that help is here.

Never in the history of civilization have we been more connected and felt more alone. We are all so lonely. What if fundamentally the ways we have set up our lives is broken? We’ve withdrawn rather than moved through it. We want supper clubs and friends, instead of war partners. We have a wrong view of community.

Hope Explored : What’s The Best Future You Could Ever Imagine (DVD)$14.99Add to cart
There are few emotions more powerful than hope. But these days, hope often feels hard to come by. Where can we find a hope that won’t disappoint us?
Looking at the life, death and resurrection of Jesus in Luke’s Gospel, this three-session series from Christianity Explored Ministries shows that Christianity is about real hope: a joyful expectation for the future, based on true events in the past, which changes everything about my present.
It sounds good… but is it true? Whatever people do or don’t believe, Hope Explored offers them an opportunity to explore, to discuss and to discover the hope, peace and purpose Jesus offers.
With only three sessions, Hope Explored does not require a huge time commitment from guests, so it is one of the easiest ways to introduce someone to Christianity. It can be run in person or on video-meeting technology, in small groups or . The Christianity Explored series can then be run as a follow-up course for those eager to explore the Christian faith more.
On this DVD, Rico Tice, Founder of Christianity Explored Ministries, introduces the concepts for each session (Hope, Peace, Purpose) and delivers compelling Bible teaching from Luke’s Gospel. The ideas are then discussed as participants look at the Bible passage together.

The Contagious Faith assessment will help you identify your primary style, along with any secondary styles you discover. It will give you next steps for developing and deploying your natural approach in order to reach others for Christ. It will also emphasize the importance of all the skill set areas discussed in the Contagious Faith book, and wherever natural it will prompt them to try out the skills discussed on the video with someone else in the group.

The six sessions (study guide sold separately) in Contagious Faith can be used in small groups, classes, student ministries, and church-wide campaigns.

Ephesians Video Study (DVD)$29.99Add to cart
The message of the gospel that Paul brought to Ephesus forever transformed its citizen’s lives. Out of this city-filled with idolatry and Roman temples-rose up a new community that lived to proclaim the grace, mercy, and love of a God who had sent His Son into the world to forgive their sins. But things did not always go smoothly within this new group. Ephesus was a city of great cultural diversity, which meant that the church Paul founded was also a multiethnic group. It wasn’t long before these various groups were finding it difficult to come together as one, put aside their differences, and get along. In other words, the church in Ephesus was having the same problems we face today.
In this six-session study (study guide sold separately), Pastor Derwin Gray of Transformation Church will guide you through Paul’s letter to this group of diverse believers. You will see how Paul presented the revolutionary idea that Jesus came not only to forgive sins but also to create a unified family out of a people with differently-colored skins. Just like a multi-faceted diamond, the different “shapes” in the church actually help to reveal its beauty. It is actually the differences among believers that make them different for the better.
The 40 Days Through the Book series has been designed to help believers more actively engage with God’s Word. Each study encourages participants to read through one book in the New Testament at least once during the course of 40 days (approximately 6 weeks of meetings). During the course, participants will be provided with (1) an understanding of the background and culture in which the book was written, (2) insights into key passages of Scripture, and (3) clear applications and takeaways from the particular book that they can apply to their lives.Designed for use with Ephesians Study Guide (sold separately).
You Were Made For This Moment Video Study (DVD)$29.99Add to cart
Racial divides. Political strife. Uncertain futures. This is the story of our day. But it is also the story of the exiles in Persia. The Jewish people had been taken from their homeland. They were being pressured to conform to foreign customs. They were facing discrimination. Now, an edict was being issued that would stamp out the Jewish race forever. Everything seemed to be falling apart for God’s people. But then two figures emerge on the scene . . . and everything changes.
As Max Lucado relates in this five-session study (study guide sold separately), Esther and Mordecai are these unlikely heroes of the tale. Both had spent their lives trying to fit in and conform. But both experience a turning point-a crucial moment where they choose to step up and stand out for the God they served. As a result of their courageous actions, winter turned to springtime for God’s people. They emerged from the crisis stronger, more unified, and more committed to serving the God of their forefathers, even in their exile.
The promise for God’s people in the book of Esther is the same promise that we have today. Our God triumphs in troubled times. When it seems as if everything is falling into pieces, he is working in our midst, causing everything to fall into place. The very one who seeks to destroy us will be destroyed. Even when it appears that evil has won, and that there is no hope for our future, we can know God’s throne is still occupied. We will triumph in the end.
The question for you today is not whether God will show up on the scene. Rather, it is whether you will choose to be a part of it when he does. Will you, like Mordacai and Esther, realize you are a position “for such a time as this” (Esther 4:14)? God is calling you to rise up in these chaotic times. You were made for this moment.
1. The Problem of Conformity (Esther 1:1-2:18)
2. A Moment of Decision (Esther 2:19-4:14)
3. Heaven Set in Motion (Esther 4:15-6:14)
4. The God of Great Turnarounds (Esther 7:1-8:17)

Case For Heaven And Hell Video Study (DVD)$29.99Add to cart
The Case for Heaven (and Hell) is the next logical installment in the Case series of studies that includes The Case for Christ, The Case for Faith, The Case for a Creator, The Case for Christmas, and The Case for Easter. As the American population continues to age, with Baby Boomers (all 76.4 million of them) entering their later years, questions about an afterlife become ever-more relevant. Everyone wants to know what awaits on the other side of death. Is there any convincing evidence that we will live on in eternity? If so, what will our experience be like?
In this five-session small-group study (study guide sold separately), Lee begins with an exploration of the fundamental question as to why so many people today fear death and the end of their lives on this earth. He then considers the view of atheists, which is that we cease to exist when we die and therefore should maximize our time in this world. This is followed by teaching from Lee based on his interviews with leading Christian philosophers, scientists, and theologians to make a strong case for the biblical view of the afterlife. Participants will learn what heaven will be like, get answers to their most pressing questions about it, and also learn about the logic behind hell.
Along the way, group members will encounter explorations of such topics as angels, Satan, demons, reincarnation, the exclusivity claims of Christ, and other issues related to the topic of immortality. In addition, they will receive a unique perspective from Lee based on his own experience of nearly dying several years ago. In the end, they will be drawn to the Christian worldview as they look forward to spending eternity with Christ.

Dont Give The Enemy A Seat At Your Table Video Study (DVD)$29.99Add to cart
In this study, bestselling author and pastor Louie Giglio relates how several years ago he experiencing one of his toughest seasons as a leader. He was feeling attacked, and in a moment of weakness, he fired off an angry text to a friend. It took him five minutes to compose the message-paragraphs of woe about the one causing harm. The nine-word text back from his friend simply said, “Don’t give the enemy a seat at your table.”
Louie relates how this simple text led him to realize that he had been allowing his adversary-the devil-into the conversation going on in his mind. He had, in fact, been giving his enemy a seat at his table. In turn, this led Louie to Psalm 23, one of the most loved texts in all of Scripture that has comforted God’s people throughout the ages.
As group members go through this study, they will see they have the power, through Christ, to take back control of their thoughts and emotions. As they uncover the meaning behind the words of Psalm 23, they will discover that God is saying they do not have to give a place to fear, envy, or despair in their lives. Ultimately, they will walk away with practical ways to defeat the enemy’s lies and know how to experience peace and security in the midst of any situation as they learn to listen to voice of their Shepherd.

Mysteries Of The Messiah Video Study (DVD)$29.99Add to cart
In this six-session video Bible study (study guide sold separately), Rabbi Jason Sobel uncovers connections between the Old Testament and New Testament that are vital in giving us a complete picture of God’s plan for sending Jesus into the world as the Messiah. In the Gospel of Luke, we read how Jesus revealed this connection to two disciples on the road to Emmaus. They listened as Jesus explained, “beginning with Moses and the Prophets . . . what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself,” and later asked themselves, “Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?” (Luke 24:27,32).
Too many of us today are likewise missing this connection. We are settling for just the New Testament or the Old Testament and not understanding how the Bible fits together as a whole to offer one complete picture of Jesus. Both the Old and New are God’s priceless possessions . . . and neither one is more or less valuable than the other. However, together their value increases dramatically! For both are needed in order for us to experience our full inheritance in God’s kingdom and His beloved children.
As Rabbi Jason unlocks these connections, participants will come to understand:
*How the foundation of the Bible (The Torah) fits with the rest of Scripture
*How the Torah answers the question of “who is the promised seed?”
*How all of the Bible works to give a picture of the promise of Messiah
*What implications this has for their lives as the Old and New Testaments come together
The Mysteries of the Messiah will show participants that God’s Word-written by many people over thousands of years-is not a random selection of people and stories but of intricate connections. Rabbi Jason will connect the dots, helping them see with clarity and “high definition” what God intended.

Wild At Heart Video Series Updated Edition (DVD)$29.99Add to cart
In this updated edition of the bestselling classic, author John Eldredge reminds men they need adventure in their lives . . . in their work, in their love, and their spiritual lives. He reveals how God designed men to be dangerous. Simply look at the dreams and desires written in the heart of every boy: to be a hero, to be a warrior, and to live a life of adventure and risk. Sadly, most men today have abandoned these dreams and desires-aided by a Christianity that feels like nothing more than pressure to be a “nice guy.” It is no wonder that many men avoid church, and those who go are often passive and bored to death.
In this provocative six-session video study (study guide sold separately), John Eldredge explains how God wants to heal these deep wounds from earlier years that take away a man’s confidence and-in some cases-his masculinity. He shows that deep within the heart of every man is a longing for a battle to fight, an adventure to live, and a beauty to rescue-because that is how God created him. It is time for the church to reclaim these wounded warriors. It is time to give men permission to be what God designed them to be-dangerous, passionate, alive, and free!

Marriage Course DVD Revised And Updated (DVD)$39.99Add to cart
Today we are facing a global crisis when it comes to families. Marriages are under more pressure than ever. Many children are growing up without experiencing the security of their parents’ love and commitment to each other-and consequently are finding it harder to receive God’s unconditional love. There is an urgent need to invest in marriage and family life, for strong societies are built on strong families, and strong families are built on strong marriages.
The Marriage Course, developed by Nicky and Sila Lee of Alpha, has been revised and updated to provide practical tools to help couples at every stage of their relationship. This update includes talks from experts including Dr. Gray Chapman, Dr. Henry Cloud, and Dr. Sue Johnson on topics such as money, sex, love languages, healthy boundaries, and building connections. The course will also cover how couples can:
*Better understand each other’s needs
*Communicate more effectively
*Grow closer by learning methods to resolve conflicts
*Recover from the way they may have hurt each other
*Recognize how their upbringing has affected their relationship
*Improve relationships with parents and in-laws
The Marriage Course is based on a Christian understanding of love and serves to strengthen marriages within the church while being accessible for all couples from any cultural background, with or without a background in the Christian faith.
1. Building Strong Foundations
2. The Art of Communication
3. Resolving Conflict

Redeemed Video Study (DVD)$29.99Add to cart
God never designed us to just figure things out on our own. When Jesus came to earth to start a revolution, he did so by gathering a small band of ordinary men around him. These men had unique backgrounds, diverse occupations, and individual personalities. Jesus orchestrated learning environments as they worked alongside each other that changed them into the most powerful transformative community in the history of the word. Together, they went from self-centered individuals to united powerhouses.
The goal of the CORE studies is set men on a similar journey that will transform them and their group into this type of community. Each study features five real-life stories of men who have faced real-life challenges and discovered transformation, redemption, restoration, purpose, and identity. These stories serve as a catalyst for men to start being real about their own stories and realize they are not alone in the struggle. In turn, this opens them up to getting the encouragement necessary to engage in life proactively.
There has never been a more critical need to equip men with the tools to win the battles over their hearts and futures. CORE gives them the ability to create spaces where they can show up as they are without judgment, be open about their struggles, and find freedom to discover who God says they are. They will be invited to step out of shame and isolation and encouraged to step into their God-given purpose.
This study features an introduction from Jeremy Affeldt and stories from well-known speakers on the topics of identity, transformation, brotherhood, choices, and renewal.

Revelation Video Study (DVD)$29.99Add to cart
Have you ever heard someone say they are afraid of the book of Revelation? Or perhaps without knowing, simply described the book in a negative or challenging way? Nothing could be more incorrect as the entire book is a descriptive and poignant expression of what John was blessed to see that each of us longs to know-a place, an end, an eternity that is promised and is the very definition of hope, extravagant hope.
As a part of the Beautiful Word Bible Study Series, Bible teacher and author Margaret Feinberg digs into the book of Revelation and the letters to the churches found there. She takes complex and sometimes illusive content and leads us on a journey where we come to realize everything we have hoped for is there, on the pages, waiting for us. Margaret connects beautiful words to this final book of the Bible inspiring women to forever be reminded of the one thing we all long for-extravagant hope.

7 Words : Listening To Christ From The Cross (DVD)$39.99Add to cart
Examine the last seven words of Christ on the cross this Lent.
While many of us naturally wish to avoid the reality of the cross, it’s from the cross that Jesus speaks and shows his deepest love for us. It’s from the cross that Jesus’ full humanity draws us closest to him. It’s from the cross, as Jesus breathes his last breath and speaks his last words, that his deep trust in the Father and his divine glory are revealed. Those who listen to Jesus’ last words from the cross will discover what he most wants them (the world) to hear and will experience an intimate and divine awe only available to those who are willing to draw near his cross.
In Seven Words, Susan Robb looks at the seven last words of Christ on the cross through a lens that finds life and hope in his final sayings, while exploring each from a biblical and historical perspective. The book brings a hopeful and contemplative take on the cross during the weeks of Lent.

Have you ever felt stuck in a cycle of unresolved pain, playing offenses over and over in your mind? You know you can’t go on living like this, but you don’t know what to do next. And you just don’t know if you’ll ever get past it.
In this six-session Bible study (study guide sold separately), Lysa TerKeurst has walked this journey, wrestling with deep wounds that feel impassible and struggling to move forward. And she’s discovered that, to find life-giving freedom, we have to let go of our bound-up resentment and resistance to forgiving people who’ve hurt us.

*learn how to move on when the other person refuses to change and never says they’re sorry;
*walk through a step-by-step process to free ourselves from the hurt of our past and feel less offended today;
*discover what the Bible really says about forgiveness and the peace that comes from living it out right now;
*identify what’s stealing trust and vulnerability from our relationships so we can believe there is still good ahead; and
*disempower the triggers hijacking our emotions by embracing the two necessary parts of forgiveness.

You Are Never Alone Video Study (DVD)$29.99Add to cart
In this six-session video Bible study (study guide sold separately), bestselling author Max Lucado looks at the miracles of Jesus as recorded in the Gospel of John. As John states, he recorded many of these signs for an express purpose: “These are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name” (John 20:31). John chose the stories and events from Jesus’ life that he believed would give his readers strength, empower them, lift them up, and speak life into their situations.
By the time John penned the words of his Gospel, he was an old man . . . his hair silver and skin wrinkled. He was pastoring a collection of Christ followers in the distant city of Ephesus. But he still loved to tell the story–some six decades earlier and a thousand miles removed–of when Jesus first called him to lay down his net . . . and he obeyed. The others are gone now. Peter, Andrew, James. They’ve long since followed their calls and fulfilled their missions. Only John remains, and he knows that his days are coming to an end. It is with this purpose that he takes up his pen . . . to help his readers believe and have life.
John’s record of Jesus’ miracles reassure us that we are never stuck or without hope. We are never forgotten. All the forces of heaven have been marshalled to come to our aid. A rescue mission is underway! The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. A multitude of angels and the power of Scripture. The strength of prayer and the wisdom of saints. All this, and more, are continually working together to get us out and see us through. This is the message of the miracles . . . that with God you are never alone.

Names Of God Womens Bible Study (DVD)$49.99Add to cart
Know God better through a study of His names.
Today’s culture and others’ views, even those of other Christians, can present a distorted view of God. Some suggest God exudes qualities He does not possess such as being unloving or apathetic toward His creation. In a world where we find people creating God in their own image, studying God’s names can remind us that we are created in His. In fact, one of the best ways to know God’s true character and grow closer to Him is to study His names.
In The Names of God, Melissa Spoelstra leads women on an exploration of the many names of our triune God-from El and Elohim to Yahweh and its many combinations to names such as Abba, Jesus, and Holy Spirit…and many others.
As women study the names of God, their ideas about God will become more grounded in what His names tell them, and thus more personal, allowing a greater trust in Him to share the details of their lives. Whether having walked with God for many years or just starting out in a relationship with Him, by the end of this study women will not only know more about God but will know Him better-because through the discovery of God’s names, they will discover Him!
Components for this six-week Bible study, each available separately, include a Participant Workbook, a Leader Guide, DVD with six 25-minute segments (with closed captioning), and a boxed Leader Kit containing one of each component.
*A six-week study of the names of God.
*Inspires women to have a more personal and trusting relationship with God.
*DVD features dynamic, engaging teaching in six 25-minute segments.
*Strong, solid Bible study from popular Bible teacher and speaker Melissa Spoelstra.
28 Day Prayer Journey Video Study (DVD)$29.99Add to cart
We know from Scripture that prayer is essential to an intimate and thriving relationship with God, but often we simply don’t know how or what to pray. Many of us feel inhibited with group prayer or praying out loud. Chrystal Evans Hurst knows both the freedom and literal blessing of establishing and growing your prayer life, and how difficult it can be when prayer itself feels a bit foreign.
In this video-based Bible study (study guide sold separately), Chrystal teaches us the basic tenets of prayer practice and establishes a realistic and doable pattern of prayer to be applied to our daily life for 28 days with lasting effect. She then dives deep into four postures of prayers that increase our communication and relationship with God. After you have prayed in one posture for an entire week, Chrystal will break down that posture and walk through the biblical references supporting it to draw the connections between your growing relationship with God and the practice of prayer.
This study includes daily prayer practices, space to journal about your prayers and what you are hearing from God, as well as challenges each week to keep yourself from distraction and give prayer the time it deserves.
*Introduction to Types of Prayer and Practice
