Our team loves the church and we love small groups. But we realize that sometimes churches need more than just a small group study.
That is why David Nasser, Third Day's Mac Powell, Chris Seay, and Todd Phillips
have partnered with Bluefish TV to create the 2010 Adult Bible Study Kit. In this small group video series, you'll find optional resources to help you turn your small group study into a church-wide study.
In addition to the Bible study material, leader's guide, and workbook within each study, we've also included a BONUS Church Wide Resource DVD
packed with real-life stories, video sermon illustrations, motion loops, background images, audio downloads, and promotional materials (teaser trailers, flyers, posters, logos, headshots) to help you carry the message even further.
Here's a brief description of everything included in the 2010 Adult Bible Study Kit:
