Connect Your Passion with the World’s Great Need.

Every day we see that things are not right in our world, and as followers of Jesus Christ, we have an impulse to do something about it. We long to connect our passions and gifts with the world’s great needs, making a unique contribution for the healing of the world.

In Make a Difference, author James A. Harnish helps United Methodists answer the questions “How can I contribute to God’s healing work in this world?” and “How can I find my place to serve and make a difference?” Drawing upon biblical wisdom and real stories of real people who have found their place to serve, he provides practical guidance to help every disciple make a difference as a participant in God’s transformation of the world.

This six-week study is perfect for anyone desiring to

  • engage service or mission as a vital part of discipleship,
  • find a place to serve—in the church, the community, and/or the world
  • engage in God’s work in the world

The study includes a book, leader guide, and DVD featuring six engaging and lively discussions with the author and several special guests highlighting opportunities and outcomes of making a difference in this world.
