SHARING GOD'S LOVE
As a client advocate, there's so much to talk about at that initial meeting. How do we fit it all in? This three part series on sharing the Gospel is set up so each session can stand alone.
Session One: Finding true love!
Our desire for love is often sought out from other people. But people often disappoint us. There is one person, Jesus, who will never disappoint you. Using something as simple as circles, you can share The Fall and God's unconditional love and gift of redemption through His Son in as little as 10 minutes.
Session Two: Religion or a relationship
Many of us know about Christ's substitutionary death on the cross, but have you ever had a client tell you life doesn't look a lot different now then before salvation? Or, what about the client who says she's tried religion and it just isn't working for her? Do you wonder how to share about the abundant life in Christ, to have joy in the midst of difficult circumstances?
The cross and swing diagrams are two simple toos you can use with your clients.
Session Three: What do you have in common with Kate Middleton?
Using the story of Kate Middleton going from commoner to royalty as an analogy, we then use Galatians 2:20 to see the same change in our clients who have accepted the gift of salvation.
We can dispel the claim clients make that they've done too many bad things for God to love them.

Be Transformed Bible Study
A nine-week, 90-minute session Bible study. The class opens with a discussion about God's Truths revealed through out the week after reflecting on five days of questions. The second half of the class is when the new teaching is presented. This is an opportunity to build on the foundations from the three workshops listed above, but the workshops are not a prerequisite for the study. This study gives practical, relatable analogies about God's Truths to share with your clients.
Once a client accepts the gift of salvation, this teaching assists you in discipling them as believers to exchange chaos, anxiety and frustration for peace and joy.
Cost of the book is $25/person.
Cost of the class is $25/person or $200 for 8 or more.

A Christ-Centered Approach to Helping Single Moms
Do you have single moms in your church? Are you unsure of their needs, how to best help them?
Single parents are a growing segment of our population. Nearly a quarter of female-headed households live below, with another quarter living 200% below poverty.
Besides parenting alone, there are additional challenges to returning to school to get a better-than-minimum wage job.
Learn what those challenges are and how you as a ministry leader or pastor can come alongside these families.
As your congregation helps these families, they will reflect God’s love to them.
