Having a well-developed testimony is one of the most powerful tools for both evangelism and encouraging fellow believers. Storytelling comes naturally to some, but for most of us it requires thought and preparation. In this class you will learn how to best tell the story of your salvation, as well as learn to tell stories of growth or trials that God has guided you through. This class will help you see that everyone has a story worth telling and will open your eyes to everything God has done and is doing in your life, and equip you to communicate it in an effective and dynamic way.

Forge Evening: The Power of Jesus’ Names

by Tony Evans

Some names live in infamy, and some names inspire the greatest kinds of hope. But there is one name above all other names, and it belongs to the Son of God, Jesus. Jesus is the most unique person who’s ever lived, and his names carry with them great weight. In this series, Dr. Tony Evans journeys around the stomping grounds of Jesus in the land of Israel and presents a complete picture of the Incarnate God. By teaching on each of the major names of Jesus, Tony brings us face-to-face with the Second Person of the Trinity and we find ourselves asking one question: “What will we do with Jesus?”

FORGE MORNING: Work as worship

by J.D. Grearer

Many Christians—from the CEO to the teacher to the stay-at-home parent—spend a great deal of time working and yet do not realize how our work intersects with their faith. We compartmentalize our faith to Sunday morning and see the rest of their week as having little to do with their walk with God. Scripture, however, makes no division between the sacred and secular parts of our lives. God gives us our work, talent and skills so that through them we might worship Him. This study will challenge all of us to consider why He may have you in your current position and encourage you to look beyond how your job makes you feel and see the purpose and significance in your work.

Elijah: Spiritual Stamina in Every Season

by Melissa Spoelstra

The struggle is real. It’s just plain hard to find the strength...the stamina...to get through the ups and downs of our daily lives. Sometimes it’s enough to make you want to go hide in a cave. Elijah’s life was a string of seriously mountain-top high and bottom-of-the-pit low events, and yet he did extraordinary things for God. In Elijah, you’ll learn the spiritual stamina secrets that helped this great prophet hold on and persevere in faith, including practical habits related to making decisions, caring for the soul, accepting circumstances, mentoring, and finishing well—Elijah’s ultimate legacy. He doubted and struggled just as we do, but he chose to believe God through it all. As you study his life through a combination of study of Scripture with personal reflection, application, and prayer, you will grow in faith and develop spiritual stamina that will help you not only to survive but to thrive in every season

Badge Brides: It’s Not Supposed to be This Way

by Lysa TerKeurst

Note: This is a bible study for the wives behind the badge and specifically aimed at supporting the unique challenges law enforcement families and marriages encounter. Because of the sensitive nature of their conversations, we respectfully request ONLY active duty, sworn peace officers' wives register.

Life often looks so very different than we hoped or expected. Some events may simply catch us off guard for a moment, but others shatter us completely. We feel disappointed and disillusioned, and we quietly start to wonder about the reality of God’s goodness. Lysa TerKeurst understands this deeply. But she’s also discovered that our disappointments can be the divine appointments our souls need to radically encounter God. Lysa invites us into her own journey of faith and, with grit, vulnerability, and honest humor helps us to see our lives in the context of God’s bigger story. Whether we’re dealing with daily disappointments or life-altering loss, we can find unexpected strength as we learn what it means to wrestle well between our faith and our feelings.
