Taking the next faith step together as one.
Designed for use with the Forward Participant Book and video, the leader guide helps leaders facilitate a small group using Forward curriculum. It contains instructions on how to use the interactive participant book and video in each session, as well as additional teaching content from the author.
Forward is a seven-session small group study based on the virtues lifted up in 2 Peter 1:3-11: moral excellence, knowledge, self-control, endurance, godliness, affection for others, and love. Readers will discover the importance of actively pursuing a godly life, not just resisting sin but fully embracing the life of goodness and love that Christ offers us. In Forward, the first sequel to the One curriculum, author Nick Cunningham leads Christ-centered small groups to take the next step in faith together, pushing one another forward to grow in faith, knowledge, and actions consistent with a Christian life.
As a sequel to Cunningham's study One: A Small Group Journey Toward Life-Changing Community, Forward follows the same format, including a participant book with teaching content and interactive elements; a leader guide; and video. Small groups that have not previously used One will enjoy Forward as a guide for developing Christian virtues with the support and partnership of others.
