Connect, Grow, Serve, Go – choosing a Bible study resource just got easier. LifeWay wants to help church leaders raise up disciples that are equipped in all aspects of their spiritual walk. So they have identified four fundamental areas in which they believe all adult Christians should progress. And they've placed their resources into those four categories: Connect, Grow, Serve and Go

Life Connections Series
God does not intend for us to live our lives as a random collection of individuals with similar interests who cross paths every now and then. That's why Life Connections was created ~ to help build community. Series includes 16 Bible Studies covering a wide variety of topics that will connect wherever you and your community may be in your walk with Christ.

True Love Waits Series for Parents of Teenagers Series
Some issues don't go away. In fact, some issues become more complicated over time. It's no longer just a question of will your students have sex, but if they choose to, with whom: guys, girls or both. In a sex-saturated culture, the new "normal" is frightening but the truth remains unchanged--True Love Waits. These issues that don't go away--these are the very issues that your students spiritual lives depend on. True Love Waits will help you start the conversations that matter.

Men's Fraternity Series
Imagine the transforming power of men coming together in your church to honestly examine their lives and take the courageous steps necessary to embrace authentic biblical manhood. That is the goal of Men's Fraternity, the three-year men's ministry curriculum developed by Robert Lewis, the pastor-at-large of Fellowship Bible Church, Little Rock, Arkansas, and the author of Raising a Modern-Day Knight.

Men of Purpose Series
They were not perfect men; some of them were not even religious men. But they were men willing to receive their marching orders by listening to the voice of God over the screams of their current cultures. Series author Gene Getz helps men see what God's definition of a man entails.

Men's Ministry
Men's Ministry impacts the spiritual temperature of the local church more than any other group. Men are called to be the spiritual leaders of their families, spiritual servants as deacons, and spiritual leaders teaching through Sunday School and the disciple-making ministries of the church, all of which impact the community in which the church ministers and seeks to reach.

Deacons
Men like to do something that has meaning. To SERVE alongside fellow believers to impact this world for Christ brings fulfillment. Whether it is service through the deacon ministry, Sunday School, disciple making or some other ministry, men lead best by serving.

Marriage, Family & Parenting Series
Even if you've never thought about it like this before, most of the ministries of your church are a part of the Family Ministry. Families need to CONNECT with God according to His design and with other believers inside and outside of the family. LifeWay provides trusted biblical solutions that help families make the connection. We believe that when families GROW in the Knowledge and practice of God's Word, transformation occurs as God draws people to Himself and conforms believers to Christ's like. Simply put, relationships thrive most in an environment where Christian faith results in acts of service. With this in mind, the Family of God uses is designed to help parents disciple their families toward joining God where He's working around them. As the grace of the gospel inspires families to serve, it also compels them to GO into the local and worldwide community with the gospel as the catalyst for transformation. Every generation within the family can make an impact on the lost world around them.

Home Work Series
A large part of God's epic story is a great love and desire for all of us to live in community. And no community is more important to God than the family. Being born into or marrying into a family does not ensure its success. This series will help show you a path to successful family life. Because home still works -- the journey, just like the reward is well worth the effort.

Small Groups
Life change takes place best in small groups. Small groups create environments where individuals experience the synergy of Christian community and the inescapable influence of the Holy Spirit. The encouragement, support, and accountability necessary to live a Connecting, Growing, Serving and Going lifestyle are inbred in every healthy group’s DNA. But without resources to support these four pillars of spiritual growth these expressions of the journey could be overlooked.

Soul Cafe Series - Small Groups

God & The Art Series - Small Groups
Ever wondered what it is about movies that stir something deep within us -- why they make us walk out of a theatre feeling emboldened, depressed, inspired, or touched in ways we never imagined possible? Is it just because of the entertainment value? Or what about music? Why does it make us feel the way it does? Why does it ignite emotion in us, causing us to weep or worship or want to be more than we've been before? And though we don't always know it when we see it, we often sense it when we hear it? This growing line of small-group studies will help you see something greater in the epics of stage and screen, as well as classic music from the past and present. Some of the books in this series feature "dinner and a movie" nights for your group to share, followed by guided gatherings that give your outlets for discussing the core truths inside the film, uncovering worldviews, and being smarter about what you're seeing in the midst of this movie going and musical discover, you'll be better able to find your place in God's plan, feel the wash of His ocean engulfing you and experience the freedom of spiritual adventure in the grip of His sovereign storytelling.

The Message of Paul Series - Small Groups

Resources that will help your church to reach out and share their faith with others.

Recovery and Support Ministry
Many people are being held captive. They are not growing in Christ because Satan is using their past hurts and present pains to imprison them and stall their progress. They have bought into his lie that they will never know joy or peace, love as others do, or become like Christ. But this is just not so. They can experience all of these things, and Jesus promised that freedom would be theirs, Jesus announced that He came from heaven to earth, "to preach the gospel to the poor….to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives" Luke 4:18 KJV

Picking Up The Pieces Series
Just because life can be messy at times doesn't mean our lives have to be. How we process the difficulties of life -- for example, who we listen to--is what makes the difference. This series is, quite simply, a hearing aid for the brokenhearted.

Leadership
LifeWay wants to help church leaders rise up disciples that are equipped in all aspects of their spiritual walk.

Stewardship
Whether you are growing or expanding, come to see the biblical teachings on giving and the unique concept of whole-life stewardship.

Sunday School is the intentional, foundational, open-group discipleship strategy for your church. Sunday School is designed to help adults encounter God through His Word; minister to members and prospects and invite persons to come to Christ, to be part of the church and to join God at work.

Life Classics Bible Studies
Bible Studies come and go, but these classics contain "the one". The one you still talk about years after doing the study. The one that changed your life completely. The one that influenced the course of your entire church. That's why many churches repeat these studies every few years - to affect the lives of new members who weren't involved the last time.

Growing Disciples Series
The Growing Disciples series was developed by Claude King, a coauthor of Experiencing God. It begins with The Call to Follow Christ, which presents an overview of six spiritual disciplines. Subsequent studies help new and growing believers understand and pursue these six disciplines for a lifestyle of faithful and fruitful life in Christ.

MasterLife Series
Guides both new and experienced believers to develop lifelong, obedient relationships with Jesus Christ as they follow a systematic approach to all areas of discipleship. It is recommended that participants complete all four 6-week studies in sequence, but any book may be studied independently.

Disciple making guides people to be transformed into Christ likeness so they think and act like Christ. Within the church, the disciple-making ministry should be all-inclusive. All ministries should contribute to make disciples. Worship experiences, Sunday School, ministry opportunities, and fellowship all can be used to guide people to be transformed into Christ likeness.
