Feeling spiritually drained is so discouraging.

You’re ready for a change

You want to become spiritually alive again, but you don’t know where to start.

God wants you to experience the best life possible. Jesus didn't die for us to remain unchanged. Jesus died so we can have a deepening relationship with God and experience the life-changing power of faith.

The SoulShaping®

For Small Groups

The SoulShaping® Experience is not “just another program.” The SoulShaping® Experience provides the opportunity to ignite a movement of Christian spiritual vitality in your life, your group, and your congregation or organization.

The Good News of abundant life in Jesus Christ spreads as Jesus’ followers experience the transforming power of spiritual vitality and share what they’ve experienced with others who share with others.

The SoulShaping® Experience for Small Groups provides resources for a ten-week season of accelerated spiritual growth. We define a small group as up to 15 people. The package includes:

Ten videos (each one about 7-8 minutes long) that accompany the 10 Weeks of the SoulShaping Journal and readings in SoulShaping (Second Edition): From Soul Neglect to Spiritual Vitality. Each video is used to open and close a small group gathering. Here’s the link for a sample of the video.

Ten Weekly Discussion Guides to facilitate group exploration and conversation. Here’s a sample.

  • A Small Group Introductory Video which is shared with the group so they can view it prior to the first gathering.
  • A Leader’s Orientation video for the group facilitator.
  • The SoulShaping® Experience for Small Groups package is a “turnkey” resource that anyone can easily facilitate. The purchase of the package includes an access code that licenses the group facilitator to use the videos and to access, print, and/or distribute up to 15 copies of the Weekly Discussion Guides.

In addition to the personal study of SoulShaping® as an individual, there can be great benefit in small groups, congregations, and organizations going through SoulShaping® together.

The SoulShaping® Experience is presented as a 10-week series that equips God’s people to be fully alive in Christ by bridging the gap between a vague knowledge of spirituality and a vibrant experience of God’s presence, perspective, pace, power, and purpose.

In addition to learning the practice of spiritual disciplines, participants experience the life-altering results those disciplines produce so they can integrate spiritual vitality into their daily lives.
