Overcome Those Awkward Silences in Your Small Group

Nobody enjoys an awkward silence—especially when you’re trying to lead a Bible study of small group. Plenty of issues could derail the conversation: everything from the temperature of the room to the mix of personalities.

Our Identity in Christ

When we root our identity in the person of Christ, grace transforms our lives and deepens our relationship with God. In this video series, Elyse Fitzpatrick reveals how an identity rooted in Jesus changes what we believe about ourselves, impacts how we treat others, and ultimately restores our hope. This practical study is the perfect addition to your discipleship ministry.

Archaeology & Jesus


No place on earth has arrested the attention of adventurers and archaeologists like the Holy Land. But does what we dig up in Israel, bear resemblance to the stories that we read of Jesus in the Gospels? Explore biblical archaeology with New Testament scholar Dr. Craig Evans as he reveals ground-breaking finds that illuminate the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. Settle in and plan a movie discussion night with your small group, Bible study, or youth group.

Book Study: Romans


Paul’s epistle to the Romans is one of the most important theological treatises ever written. In this video lecture series from Romans expert Douglas Moo, you’ll trace the major theological themes of Romans, following Paul’s flow of thought from argument to argument and uncovering the book’s historical, theological, and practical significance. Use clips from this series to prompt discussion in your next biblical book study.
