Goliath Must Fall - Louie Giglio
It’s likely you have a threatening giant in your life . . . an adversary or stronghold that’s diminishing your ability to live a full and free life. Frozen in the grip of rejection, fear, anger, comfort, or addiction, you’ve lost sight of the promise God has for your life. Demoralized and defeated, you’ve settled for far less than his best. God has a better plan for you—a plan for you to live in victory. That’s why he has silenced your giant once and for all. In this six-session video Bible study, Pastor Louie Giglio uncovers a newfound twist in the classic story of David and Goliath. He shows how the key to living free from our giants is not better slingshot accuracy, but keeping our eyes on the one and only giant-slayer: Jesus. Put your hope in him, and watch Goliath fall.
Psalm 23 - Matt Chandler
Many people are familiar with Psalm 23. But because we all know it, we often breeze through the psalm without slowing down long enough to rest in the assurance it offers. In this 6-part series on Psalm 23, pastor Matt Chandler introduces us to the great shepherd, the Lord, who promises to provide for every need of his flock. Though only six verses long, this psalm teaches us profound truths about our loving and protective God. By studying Psalm 23, we’ll encounter a life-transforming question: Do you trust the Lord to care for your needs?
Crazy Love - Francis Chan
It's crazy, if you think about it. The God of the universe loves us with a radical, unconditional, self-sacrificing love. And what is our typical response? We go to church, sing songs, and try not to cuss. God is calling you to a passionate love relationship with Himself. Because the answer to religious complacency isn't working harder at a list of do's and don'ts—it's falling in love with God. The Crazy Love Study Resource helps you and your small group to dive deeper into God's love. A companion to the best-selling Crazy Love book by Francis Chan, this 10-week study follows a day-in-the-life of Francis in the form of ten, 10-minute segments that correspond to each chapter of Crazy Love. These thought-provoking teachings are designed spark discussion, interaction, and practical application of the Crazy Love message with small groups, churches, youth groups, and individuals.
Dream Big - Jennie Allen
It was an easy question to answer when they were little, but life gets complicated for teen girls. When they get stuck in drama, discontentment, sadness, and shame, how can they even begin to look ahead to the future? In this 4-part series, author, Bible teacher, and Founder of IF:Gathering, Jennie Allen, inspires teen girls to throw off everything that holds them back and be energized by God's dreams for them. Connecting Scriptures from the New Testament with everyday life, Jennie talks about the big and small ways they can use their unique gifts, spend time with God, and have fun giving His love away. Each session features real-life stories of girls who have struggled to overcome obstacles and find meaning in their lives, but are beginning to see God's vision unfold. Dreaming big isn't about the perfect job or a glamorous life “some day.” Dreaming big starts now. When girls are secure in who Christ made them to be and believe in what God can do in and through them, they will grow in confidence, create community, and accomplish great things.

Titus - Chip Ingram
In this Book of the Bible series, Chip Ingram unpacks the book of Titus. He challenges us to display the gospel in our lives through doing good. We do good works not to earn God’s favor, but as a result of God’s favor. When the gospel has truly taken root in our lives, it produces the fruit of godliness. As we pass these things on to future generations, the Church stands in bright contrast to the darkness of the world.

Big Questions - Andy McLean
Big Questions: Developing a Christ-Centered Apologetic is a six-session apologetic study designed to equip students to think biblically and apologetically about some of today’s toughest topics relating to the Christian faith. Bringing in some of today’s leading Christian apologists to contribute—William Lane Craig, J.P. Moreland, Sean McDowell, and Craig Hazen— Big Questions takes students to another level of being able to explain why they believe what they believe. Questions relating to doubts, evidence for God’s existence, the relationship between science and Christianity, the existence of world religions, the problem of evil and suffering, and how to live apologetically in the world today are covered throughout the study, all for the purpose of not only strengthening a student’s faith, but to help that student defend and commend the faith to others.
Apologetics - Matt Chandler
Why does God allow suffering and tragedy? Does science disprove Christianity? Is Jesus really the only way? Why are Christians so hypocritical? Christians throughout the ages have wrestled with questions like these, and chances are, so do you. Having faith isn't always easy. You may not always have the “winning” answer that makes you popular. Sometimes believing the Bible might make you feel like everyone's against you. But it's critical that you don't run from these types of questions. In these four challenging sessions, students share real-life stories about their own struggles in coming to terms with what Scripture teaches about God, sin, creation and Jesus. Matt Chandler provides powerful teaching from Scripture and helps teens understand why believing in God and the Bible is not only reasonable, but also essential. And that's what apologetics is all about. Knowing what you believe and why you believe it, and then being able to share with others why you think your beliefs are reasonable.
