Sermon-based Lessons

Recently, Josh has written sermon based lessons that go along with my weekly sermons to my congregation. This has provided a new level of alignment between the topics I present from the pulpit and the conversations that happen in our Connection Groups. Our people love it and it is a great complement to our worship services.

Good Questions Have Groups Talking

Our little church has really enjoyed Good Questions. They love the open discussion. We have grown too! The local folks are buzzing about Providence Sunday school.
Only by the grace of God.
Tina Leonard

Why we must discuss

We are changed more by what we say than what we hear. People who speak words of gratitude become more grateful. People who speak words of love become more loving. People who complain become grumpier. We must lead people to be people who are, "speaking the truth in love, we will grow." (Ephesians 4.15

Good Questions Have Groups Talking

Good Questions have groups talking, thinking, growing, pondering, changing. We have 100 examples of Jesus using questions to teach. The classic example is when He led his disciples through a series of questions to have Peter declare, "You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God." Jesus knew that when Peter declared this truth, he would be changed by it.

Good Questions Save You Time

If you have been studying and teaching the Bible for a while, prep time can be greatly reduced through the use of Good Questions. Perhaps you are a pastor and/or have been to seminary and/or have just been studying the Bible for years. All you need is 20 or so ready-to-use questions and you are good to go.

Weary of Struggling to Find Teachers?

I used to struggle to find and recruit Sunday School teachers -before I started writing Good Questions that Have Groups Talking.

Small Group Life's Two Biggest Problems

When I was a Group Pastor I had two problems

  1. I couldn’t get enough leaders
  2. Many of the leaders I did have were boring

How could Good Questions solve both of these problems?

We had the privilege of hosting Josh Hunt for our mid winter Sunday Morning Bible Study leadership conference. The emphasis on investing and building relationships is the key to reaching our society today. If you have not had the opportunity to have Josh Hunt in your church or attend one of his conferences, make plans to involve your leadership. His concepts will make a difference in your thinking about how simple it really is to reach out to people.

Not as good as we think we are

WE CANNOT DEFEAT THE DEVIL IN OUR OWN STRENGTH
