God has seen you. He’s chosen you. And He’s sent you. To see others clearly, and to help them feel seen.
A Parade of Hope!
John 3:16, one of the most famous verses in the Bible, in a 26-word parade of hope, beginning with God, ending with life, and urging us to do the same.
This is broad enough to support a churchwide campaign yet versatile enough to use for a weekend retreat or a six-session group study.
40 Days In the Word is designed to help you, your small group, and your congregation Love the Word, Learn the Word, and Live the Word like never before.
40 Days in the Word is a journey of eternal significance, as you and your church will learn how to be not only “hearers” of the Word, but also “doers” of God’s Word.
Leadership in the kingdom of God is different from leadership in the world. Kingdom leaders are people who lead like Jesus. They are servant leaders because they follow Jesus, who “did not come to be served, but to serve” (Mark 10:45).Many churches struggle because they lack servant leaders. In too many churches today, head tables have replaced the towel and washbasin as symbols of leadership among God’s people. Jesus on Leadership can lead members of the body of Christ to apply biblical principles of servant leadership to all areas of their ministries.

Do you take God at His Word, believing what He has told us, or do you just believe in His existence and the salvation He offers?
Beth Moore came face-to-face with this question well into adulthood. At first, her response to God was, “Lord, of course I believe in You. I’ve believed in You all my life.” Over time, the Holy Spirit led her to understanding He was saying, “I didn’t ask you to believe in Me. I asked you to believe Me.”
Based on Isaiah 43:10, Believing God: Experiencing a Fresh Explosion of Faith explores what it means to believe God. Through studying the lives of Abraham, Moses, and others from Hebrews 11 as examples of persons who believed God, Beth encourages women to deepen their own trust in God and receive a fresh word from Him. Join Beth for 10 life-changing weeks and learn to believe God!
You Are Christ’s Beloved
John the apostle must have thought he had seen everything. Having been with Jesus all the years of His ministry, John witnessed more miracles than he could count, saw more displays of power than he could comprehend, and experienced more love than he could fathom. John was there when Jesus turned the water to wine, offered living Water to the woman at the well, yielded to His Father’s will in the garden of gethsemane, and gave His life on a Roman cross. And one unforgettable morning young John outran Peter to his Savior’s empty tomb.
Yet God had more in stor for the Son of Thunder. As the other disciples were martyred one by one, John remained to write his sublime Gospel proclaiming Jesus’ identity as the eternal Word of God. In his three letters John left a legacy of divine love to ignite the passion of future believers. And while exiled on Patmos, John recorded His risen Lord’s glorious revelation of victory and hope.
John referred to himself as “the disciple whom Jesus loved.” Just as Christ took John on a lifelong journey into the depths of His love, He will do the same for you. The Bridegroom’s love is unmatched and inexhaustible, and He is waiting to lavish it on you, His beloved.
In this verse-by-verse study of the Book of Hebrews, Jen Wilkin explores how God “provided something better for us” in the person of Jesus Christ (Heb. 11:40). Through stories of Old Testament heroes and practices, the author of Hebrews demonstrates how the new covenant is superior to the old and how Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of every promise. Explore familiar verses in context of the entire Bible, learning how to place your hope and faith in Christ alone.

Is your preaching changing the hearts and lives of your people? Do you desire to become a better communicator to reach the lost in your community? Each weekend, 55 million people listen to 1 billion words in sermons given across America. Yet research shows that the #1 Complaint people have is that sermons are boring and don’t relate to their lives. The simple fact is that preaching makes or breaks a church. The bigger the church gets, the more important the pulpit becomes because it is the rudder of the ship. Where else do you get an hour of undivided attention with all these people on a weekly basis?
I am not ashamed, because I know the One I have believed in and am persuaded that He is able to guard what has been entrusted to m until that day. 2 Timothy 1:12
Final words can be compelling. In Paul’s final letter, he charged Timothy, his beloved son in the faith, to not be ashamed to fulfill God’s call on his life. In this 6-session Bible study, Beth Moore will challenge you to do the same.
Gd has a plan for you. He has entrusted you with the gospel message and has gifted you to carry it to the furthest reaches of this planet. He’s calling you to be His mighty servant, willing to face whatever difficulty you encounter as you carry out His mission.

Esther, while a queen, lived as an outsider in a hostile environment. Women will learn strong lessons of faith, providence, and hope to equip them to live courageously “for such a time as this.”
Over the years, God has used the truths of Experiencing God to awaken believers to a radically God-centered way of life. As a result, millions have come to know God intimately, to recognize His voice, and to understand His will for their lives.
This is the 2007 Study….It was updated in 2022

Discover How God Orchestrates Everything for His Glory
There are no minor characters in the story of God.
Beginning with Genesis 12, walk alongside the fathers of our faith—Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Joseph—to discern Jesus in the stories of His people.
Over 10 sessions, discover how God orchestrates everything for His glory and the good of His people, and see how the God of creation and covenant is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
See How God Reveals Himself Through Scripture
A 10-Session Study in Genesis from Author and Speaker Jen Wilkin
It all began with the Word.
The opening chapters of Genesis teach us fundamental truths about God. We watch Him bring light after darkness, order after chaos, and rest after toil—all through the power of His Word.
Over 10 sessions of verse-by-verse study, dive into Genesis 1-11 by following three critical stages of understanding: comprehension, interpretation, and application. Revisit familiar stories and historical figures, challenge your basic knowledge, and discover deeper meanings in the text. As God reveals Himself through Scripture, we can only begin to understand ourselves when we first glimpse the character, attributes, and promises of our Creator.
How can I position myself to hear God’s voice?
Why do we settle for the Word of the Lord revealed to someone else and passed on to us as if God does not speak to us individually? This shouldn’t satisfy us. In He Speaks to Me, Priscilla Shirer shows us how God spoke to Samuel and how He speaks to Christians today. He wants us to hear His voice, understand, and obey. The Lord desires to speak to us personally. He wants to meet us where we are despite who we are and reveal His will for our lives.
God is going to reveal Himself and His plan for you and in new ways. Make a commitment to be obedient to whatever He says. The results will be glorious!
Here and Now, There and Then: A Lecture Series on Revelation – Listening Guide & Weekly Assignments (A Beth Moore DVD Study)
Here and Now…There and Then by Beth Moore is a lecture series on the book of Revelation. Beth presents many points of view, allowing women to decide for themselves when the interpretation varies among scholars. She teaches that God is as specific about what He does reveal as He is about what He does not reveal. Each of the 11 sessions is approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes. The set includes 11 DVDs and one listening guide with light homework.
The Hosea Leader Kit contains everything you’ll need to lead this study: 1 small group Member Book with leader helps; 2 DVDs which include a video content for six sessions, a message to leaders, and a promotional video to help spread the word about the study.
The book of Hosea—it’s a deeply personal and passionate love story, yet it’s a difficult story. As an account full of harsh judgment unfolds, we find in its midst a rare and pure gem: the truest and purest of loves.
Hosea, an old-testament prophet, preached his own life message using his marriage as the sermon illustration. The study of Hosea looks deeply at that message. It provides background to better understand the intricacies of the man and his message. You’ll be guided to understand, but more especially to apply the message of the prophet of love.
The book will challenge us with judgment so harsh it will singe our hair—an unheeded sermon warning of devastating doom shortly to come. But it will show us the kind of love we dream about. Be amazed by the love of Hosea for his wayward spouse—and more amazed by the unfailing love of God for His wayward people, and for all people. Hosea showers us with hope—hints and portents pointing to the coming of the promised Messiah.
WHY DID GOD LET THIS HAPPEN?
In this six-session video Bible study, New York Times bestselling author Lysa TerKeurst offers a safe place to share your disappointments, fresh biblical insight to get you through painful situations, and life-giving perspectives for living between Eden and eternity.
Life often looks very different than we hoped or expected. Some events may simply catch us off guard for a moment, but others shatter us completely. At times like these, it’s easy to feel disappointed and disillusioned and to wonder about the reality of God’s goodness.
So what do you do when God’s timing seems questionable, his lack of intervention hurtful, and his promises doubtful?
Lysa understands this deeply. But she’s also discovered that our disappointments can be the divine appointments our souls need to radically encounter God. In this video Bible study (DVD/digital video sold separately), Lysa invites small groups and individuals into her own journey of faith. With vulnerability and honest humor, she helps us:
- Learn how to better process unmet expectations and other painful situations.
- Train ourselves to recognize the three strategies of the enemy so we can stand strong and persevere through unsettling relationships and uncertain outcomes.
- Discover the secret of remaining trustful when God seems to give us more than we can handle.
- Shift our suspicion that God is cruel or unfair to the biblical assurance that God is protecting and preparing us for what’s next.
- Know how to encourage a friend and help her navigate hard realities with real help from God’s truth.
Bible scholars compare James to the prophet Amos. In other ways James more closely resembles the Book of Proverbs than any New Testament book. Come along with Beth Moore on a journey to get to know both the man and the Book of James. You will never be the same again.

Have you ever tried to fight worry with faith and felt you were losing the battle? Have comments like “God’s got this!” or “Just pray about it” only left you feeling more burdened? We know we shouldn’t worry, but the reality is that we all do at times. Whether it’s personal worries about loved ones and daily circumstances or broader concerns about what’s happening in the world, we long for something more than platitudes that will help us put real feet to our faith and win the worry battle.
Many Christians do not have a full understanding of what it means to fight the good fight of faith. They try to live by faith but in the face of everyday trials and failures, they find themselves disillusioned and discouraged, wondering if they have done something wrong or if living by faith only works for others. The problem for most is simply a lack of understanding regarding what faith is and how it works.
Winning the Worry Battle, inspired by the Book of Joshua, reviews three tools a person can develop to Fight In Faith: 1) embracing God’s promises, 2) courage and commitment under pressure and 3) practicing radical obedience while waiting for God to deliver your victory.
Just as God gave His people victory over their enemies when they fought in faith, He promises to do the same for us. Following the footprints of bold, courageous faith that God gave His people, we’ll be equipped with tools to bravely fight in faith and overcome both our daily struggles and the bigger battles we all face. Through examples of how God gave the Israelites victory over their enemies and generously blessed them, too, we’ll be victorious in our fight of faith so that we not only radically transform our own lives but unequivocally impact society.
While often overlooked, the Book of Jude remains as relevant today as the time it was written. God has commanded His beloved church to do the necessary work of contending for the faith in a world of unbelief, and as we do, He will keep us from falling into the same deception. In this 7-session study from Jackie Hill Perry, dive into themes of being called, loved, and kept, and learn how to point others to Jesus in grace and truth. We serve others well when we share the whole gospel with them, not just the parts deemed attractive by our culture.
- Session 1: Jude 1-2 (15:22)—In this opening session, Jackie points out that the Christians to whom Jude writes his letter are much like us today. Like those early believers, we are in need of mercy, peace, and love in order to contend for the faith.
- Session 2: Jude 3-4 (15:31)—Jude writes out of love but confronts the problems among believers. He appeals to Christians to contend for the faith in love among false teachers, those who twist the Scriptures, and those who are ungodly.
- Session 3: Jude 5-11 (17:10)—We see examples from the Old Testament of false teachers and those who did not believe. There are certain character traits among those who rebel against God and suffer the resulting consequences.
- Session 4: Jude 14-15 (19:08)—This session reminds believers that God will judge all. God is aware of all that we are doing. The ungodly are no different from us except for God’s grace and kindness. We are to contend for the faith due to the urgency we sense for others to repent. People need the whole gospel.
- Session 5: Jude 20-23 (13:45)—Christians are always searching for advice on how to enter into difficult conversations. What we need first are instructions on how to live. Jude tells believers what they need to know to stay anchored in their faith and share biblical answers to life’s tough questions.
- Session 6: Jude 24-25 (20:21)—Jude ends his letter with praise and focus on God. God is going to be faithful to keep you, and to keep you standing because of Jesus. Jude reminds believers that God is the only God and our Savior. All glory, majesty, dominion, and authority are God’s alone for all time.
- Session 7: Wrap-up (8:06)—Jude is a small book but is full of information and power. God has a lot to say to His people through Jude as they contend for the faith. The way we contend for the faith matters.
What if you knew that by simply crossing the room and saying hello to someone, you could change that person’s forever? Just a few steps to make an eternal difference. It has nothing to do with methods and everything to do with taking a genuine interest in another human being. All you need is a heart that’s in tune with the Holy Spirit and a willingness to venture out of your “Circle of Comfort” and into another person’s life. Just Walk Across the Room brings personal evangelism into the twenty-first century. Building on the solid foundation laid in Becoming a Contagious Christian, Bill Hybels shows how you can participate in the model first set by Jesus, who stepped down from heaven 2,000 years ago to bring hope and redemption to broken people living in a fallen world. Now it’s your turn. Your journey may not be as dramatic, but it can have a life-changing impact for someone standing a few steps away from you—and for you as well, as you learn the power of extending care, compassion, and inclusiveness under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. The highest value in personal evangelism is cooperating with the Spirit, says Hybels. This means playing only the role you’re meant to play—walking when the Spirit says to walk, talking when he says to talk, and falling silent when he suggests that you’ve said enough. Hybels encourages you to “live in 3D” … Developing friendships Discovering stories Discerning appropriate next steps … as a means of learning to understand the Holy Spirit’s promptings. With fresh perspectives from his own reflections and experiences collected during his most recent decade of ministry, Bill Hybels shows with convincing and inspiring clarity the power of this personal, richly relational approach to evangelism. The stakes are high. The implications are eternal. And you may be only a conversation away from having an eternal impact on someone’s life—if you will just walk across the room.
The world is obsesssed with power. But the Bible reveals the most awesome power of all: that of Kingdom Authority, the same power unleashed when God raised Jesus Christ from the grave. The good news is that this same power, the greatest power in the universe, is available to every believer today. But most Christians never experience this power. They live in darkness and defeat of the world and its weaknesses. Satan and his minions work to keep them from the inheritance that is theirs. But Adrian Rogers, beloved Bible teacher and preacher of the gospel, can show readers how to experience the awesome power of God’s working in the world to build his kingdom.
