Take your group to a place ... ... Where they can see people's needs in a new way ... Where they can understand their calling ... Where they will learn how their faith can shape culture This six-session DVD and corresponding curriculum helps your group experience and envision how followers of Christ can be a counterculture for the common good. Together you'll experience stories of other believers who changed the culture around them. You'll watch how their journeys unfolded, their challenges, and their breakthroughs.

Begin: God calls the church to be a counterculture for the common good 2. Dwell: When we live closely with others, we find new opportunities to minister 3. Unite: We serve more effectively and joyfully when we serve together 4. Reconcile: God wants to heal our racial and ethnic divisions, especially in and through his church 5. Invest: Transforming entire communities begins when we give ourselves to people one by one 6. Abide: Spiritual disciplines help us abide in Christ so we can serve him faithfully

'The videography is excellent and professional, and the stories are compelling....If you're looking for a missional resource to jump start discussions in your small church, this is a great place to start. Amazingly, 4-out-of-the-5 churches featured are small churches, so this should be a real encouragement to your congregation. Just shows that small churches can be missional churches that engage their culture effectively!' -- Confessions of a Small-Church Pastor
