The Good Shepherd lays down His life for the sheep.

When God’s Spirit Moves

What happens when the Holy Spirit moves powerfully within a church? Through this six-session study you will learn how:

  • To make room for the Spirit’s action in your life and church
  • To listen for the voice of the Spirit
  • How a life lived in the presence of the Spirit can transform the church and the world (with Jim Cymbala, pastor of the Brooklyn Tabernacle Church)

Making Your Case for Christ

New Adult Sunday School Series

Making Your Case for Christ is designed to equip you with practical tools to share the message of Christ’s love and salvation with others and use evidence that backs up Jesus' claims and credentials.

The six classes will help you discover how to:

  • Help your unsaved friends and family members open up to consider the case for Christ
  • Describe your own personal journey with Christ and how it has impacted you
  • Share with confidence about the biblical record of Christ—that Jesus was real
  • Present the evidence for the resurrection of Christ—that Jesus died and was raised to life
  • Explain the central message of Christ in an authentic and compelling way
  • Help your unsaved friends and family members respond to the truth of Jesus

Lee Strobel, bestselling author of The Case for Christ partners with Mark Mittelberg to help you become comfortable and confident in sharing your faith.
