"Tell Someone" includes small-group experiences for six sessions, six weeks of Bible study and learning activities, applicable Scripture, and tips for leading a group. Most Christians are either afraid to share the gospel or feel that they don’t know how to share the gospel, or both. Programs and formulas have overcomplicated evangelism, so the vast majority of Christians simply don’t do it. It’s left to professionals or those trained and gifted in evangelism. In reality, evangelism is simply telling two stories: Jesus’s and yours (how Jesus changed your life forever). Everybody loves to tell and hear stories. The goal is not to win arguments but to win souls. We share the gospel because we love God and we love other people. This study helps group members identify people and places already in their daily routines, encouraging and empowering them to share the good news of Jesus Christ. Evangelism shouldn’t be an artificial religious sales pitch. We shouldn’t be afraid of burning bridges with people we know and love. Instead, we should build bridges with our stories to connect people to the heart of the Savior. This refreshing look at evangelism from Greg Laurie, one of the nation’s most prominent pastors and evangelists, will help Christians — new and old alike — discover the joy of evangelism as the good news of Jesus naturally overflows into their daily lives.

The city of ancient Corinth was much like our own modern-day cities: a melting pot of electrifying cultural experiences to be had, along with the myriad pitfalls of spiritual depravity. Still, Paul wrote to the church of God in Corinth. Meaning God’s church is meant to thrive in any city and every circumstance in which we find ourselves. Paul’s letter is as timely as ever.

Over eight sessions, Kelly Minter will lead you through the letter of 2 Corinthians, exploring the anchoring truths of bearing treasures in jars of clay, meeting Christ through a pressing thorn, opening wide your heart in the midst of hurtful relationships, and what it means to embrace the lost and lonely as ministers of the new covenant. Each of us has a message to proclaim and live by: Because of Jesus the old has gone, the new has come.

"Jonah: Navigating a Life Interrupted" provides a personal study experience five days a week, leader helps and viewer guides for the group video sessions of this in-depth women's Bible study.

What do we do when God interrupts our lives? Many times, like Jonah, we run! In this seven-session Bible study, Priscilla redefines interruption and shows that interruption is actually God's invitation to do something beyond our wildest dreams. When Jonah was willing to allow God to interrupt his life, the result was revival in an entire city.
