The teaching sessions in this six-week DVD-driven study will help you to personalize your own God story and turn His invitations in to practical application. Each session contains an introduction from Pastor Allen Jackson, a clip from Faith Like Potatoes (an inspirational film about the life of South African farmer, Angus Buchan), and a teaching session from Angus himself.

The sessions are filmed on location in the beautiful hillsides of South Africa. To enhance the study, we recommend viewing Faith Like Potatoes as a group.

God has given us everything we need to live godly lives—including the presence of the Holy Spirit to teach, guide, convict, and empower us to live triumphantly in the world. The Holy Spirit brings God's power into the lives of human beings so God's purposes can be accomplished in and through us. This power produces outcomes far beyond what we can do in our own strength and intellect.

Prayer is a powerful response to life’s challenges. It opens doorways of God’s possibilities because God hears and responds to the prayers of His people. When we interact with the people in our lives by saying, “Let’s pray,” we extend invitations to walk with God in a non-threatening way. Join Pastor Allen Jackson for six weeks to learn a simple approach to prayer, along with kinds of prayers and how to use them.
Session One: Prayer 201
Session Two: A New Response
Session Three: Learning to Pray
Session Four: Types of Prayer
Session Five: Effective Prayer
Session Six: Praying For Our Nation
Is there a God who cares about me? Can I know His plan and purpose for my life? Is it presumptuous to ask God for something? Questions such as these bubble up in all of our thoughts, and often our religious experiences have suggested we should not “bother God” with trivial things. Fortunately, we have the Bible to provide us with God’s perspective. Almighty God has clearly communicated His intent toward us, and in this six-session study, we’ll learn essential keys to living an abundant life in the midst of turbulent times.
