The Course of Your Life is a resource to help you apply the word of God to people’s lives. It seeks to revolutionize hearts and minds by focusing on who God is, what he's done in Christ, his plans for the world and for us, and how that creates a whole new agenda for our lives in making disciples of Jesus.
Practically, The Course of Your Life is a topical Bible study designed for small groups of 6-10 people, with great video input. It covers biblical content in a way that the material can be very flexible for the people you are encouraging. .

From Israel, in the north region of the Galilee, singer and songwriter Shannon Wexelberg shares her personal story of a life-changing event. Her husband Mark was severely injured by a distracted driver. As a result, his job ended, they moved from their home, and they had to let go of some dreams.
Whatever your story or wherever you are in the journey, we invite you to join Shannon as she worships. Let the music from I Have a Song draw your heart to praise, on this Day of Discovery.
You are an ambassador for Christ, and your home an embassy for Christ. So, let your light shine bright, and believe beautifully!
"Technology has brought access, awareness, and speed. But, it's axiomatic that if you're everywhere, you're probably nowhere. You've got to find a place and be present. You've got to find a level of awareness, you've got to become conscious to begin the process at all. And, for the most part, we're so distracted, we are so fragmented, we are so subject to the forces and influence that disintegrated us that we struggle to simply be awake, and alive, and conscious, and present, in any given moment. Fully awake! Fully alive! Fully present!"
"We're in the process of being dehumanized. The most extraordinary thing a person can acquire is a keen, clear sense of their humanity. And that is exactly what is being challenged and threatened, and increasingly taken away from people. They are being shaped in ways that create a conformity. And conformity is critical to the advance of the kind of consumer culture that has its tentacles all the way around most people's souls."
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.Romans 12:2
For though we walk in the flesh, we are not waging war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ,2 Corinthians 10:3-5

Welcome to the front lines of the
long war against God
Everywhere we turn, battle lines are being drawn—traditional marriage vs. gay marriage, pro-life vs. pro-choice, personal freedom vs. governmental protection. Seemingly overnight, culture has shifted to the point where right and wrong are no longer measured by universal truth but by popular opinion.
And as difficult conversations about homosexuality, abortion, and religious liberty continue to inject themselves into our workplaces, our churches, our schools, and our homes, Christians everywhere are asking the same question: How are we supposed to respond to all this?
In Counter Culture, New York Times bestselling author David Platt shows Christians how to take a stand on issues as poverty, sex trafficking, marriage, abortion, racism, and religious liberty—and challenges us to become passionate, unwavering voices for Christ.
"If it could be demonstrated that any complex organ existed which could not possibly have been formed by numerous, successive, slight modifications, my theory would absolutely break down."
—Charles Darwin, Origin of Species
Evolution simply cannot produce complex structures in a single generation as would be required for the formation of irreducibly complex systems. To imagine that a chance set of mutations would produce all 200 proteins required for cilia function in a single generation stretches the imagination beyond the breaking point. And yet, producing one or a few of these proteins at a time, in standard Darwinian fashion, would convey no survival advantage because those few proteins would have no function-indeed, they would constitute a waste of energy for the cell to even produce.
Darwin recognized this as a potent threat to his theory of evolution the issue that could completely disprove his idea. So the question must be: Has Darwin's theory of evolution "absolutely broken down?" According to Dr. Michael Behe, the answer is a resounding "yes!"
ABOUT MEN'S FRATERNITY
Men's Fraternity Classic is the original curriculum authored by Dr. Robert Lewis that helped launch the Authentic Manhood movement. Men's Fraternity Classic is a series of three one-year-long studies, beginning with The Quest for Authentic Manhood (24 weeks), followed by Authentic Manhood: Winning at Work and Home (16 weeks), and concluding with The Great Adventure series (20 weeks). More than just a rally or a Bible study, Men's Fraternity provides men with an encouraging process that teaches them how to live lives of authentic manhood as modeled by Jesus Christ and directed by the Word of God.
Men's Fraternity was designed to help men come together and strengthen each other through weekly sessions that combine biblical teaching and small group interaction.
These time-tested resources have been used all over the world to equip men to make their pursuit of noble manhood a lifelong priority. Church leaders and lay members are using the series to energize the men of their church and to connect with men in the community. Many men also use the series in their own personal pursuit of authentic manhood.
Our goal is to provide timeless truths and practical insights on how we can live to be the men God intended for us to be. We want to do more than just offer good curriculum, but to foster a worldwide movement of men who are committed to follow the courageous footsteps of Jesus into authentic manhood; men who will reject passivity, accept responsibility, lead courageously and invest eternally.
"Christendom must have people who can beat down their adversaries and opponents and tear off the devil's equipment and armor, that he may be brought into disgrace. But for this work, powerful warriors are needed, who are thoroughly familiar with the Scriptures and can contradict all false interpretations and take the sword from false teachers."Martin Luther
