God never designed us to just figure things out on our own. When Jesus came to earth to start a revolution, he did so by gathering a small band of ordinary men around him. These men had unique backgrounds, diverse occupations, and individual personalities. Jesus orchestrated learning environments as they worked alongside each other that changed them into the most powerful transformative community in the history of the word. Together, they went from self-centered individuals to united powerhouses.
The goal of the CORE studies is to set men on a similar journey that will transform them and their group into this type of community. Each study features five real-life stories of men who have faced real-life challenges and discovered transformation, redemption, restoration, purpose, and identity. These stories serve as a catalyst for men to start being real about their own stories and realize they are not alone in the struggle. In turn, this opens them up to getting the encouragement necessary to engage in life proactively.
There has never been a more critical need to equip men with the tools to win the battles over their hearts and futures. CORE gives them the ability to create spaces where they can show up as they are without judgment, be open about their struggles, and find freedom to discover who God says they are. They will be invited to step out of shame and isolation and encouraged to step into their God-given purpose.
This study features an introduction from Jeremy Affeldt and stories from well-known speakers on the topics of calling, redemption, spiritual adoption, restoration, and purpose.
